Synchrologic Ships ReadySyncGo!; Synchronizes PIM and Personalized Web Content Across Mobile Devices
Business professionals are kept up-to-date with the
information they need -
ATLANTA, Jan. 16, 2001 – One of the most difficult challenges facing mobile professionals is having access to personal and business information--when and where they need it. Synchrologic today announced the availability of ReadySyncGo!, a Web-based service that effortlessly synchronizes calendar, contacts, travel itineraries, to-do lists and memos to the devices used by business professionals everyday. ReadySyncGo! is available to individuals free-of-charge at www.readysyncgo.com. ReadySyncGo! is also available for corporations to run behind their corporate firewall or in an ASP model.
ReadySyncGo! synchronizes Personal Information Manager (PIM) information to business professionals’ mobile devices including Palm Poweredä handhelds, pagers, cell phones, PCs and laptops. Users also have direct access to their entire list of contact numbers from their mobile phone, regardless of which device the information was originally stored.
Through Synchrologic’s patent-pending Trip Manager and Appointment Manager, ReadySyncGo! users automatically receive relevant, personalized Web content based on calendar entries, such as travel itineraries including flight schedules and hotel addresses, as well as driving directions, maps and weather forecasts. Additionally, in Q1, Palm VII users will be able to wirelessly synchronize using ReadySyncGo!.
ReadySyncGo! has been designed as a corporate product. It is a secure, scalable solution, which can be implemented by an IT department. It plugs into existing intranets while leveraging the company's existing IT infrastructure. This allows IT professionals to easily manage the deployment, configuration and maintenance of all mobile devices for a corporation.
"We've integrated ReadySyncGo! into our eCRM 6.0 Suite, and will be the first CRM vendor to offer this service to our customers. We are implementing ReadySyncGo! internally as well," said Richard Brock, Firstwave president and chief executive officer. "ReadySyncGo! compliments our strategy to provide critical information to customers regardless of where they are located or what handheld device they use. When a new prospect, contact or service case is entered into Firstwave eCRM, that information instantly becomes available to the sales or field reps on their WAP phone and PDA allowing them to have the most updated information at all times. ReadySyncGo! also introduces additional content to the remote devices so our customers automatically get relevant information such as weather, directions or travel reservations directly relating to their set appointments and locations."
"I'm addicted to having up-to-date access to my appointments and contacts at any time. ReadySyncGo! has definitely made my life easier. And having all the phone numbers I need in my cell phone instead of in my computer or on a piece of paper is a life saver," said Luba Sharapan, account supervisor at Ad Agency J. Walter Thompson. "In my position, I travel a lot. Automatically receiving driving directions in my Palm saves incredible amounts of time not only for me, but for my assistant as well."
ReadySyncGo! provides mobile professionals with all of the information they need regardless of which mobile device they use. For example, a business traveler has scheduled a trip from New York to San Francisco, ReadySyncGo! automatically sends all relevant content about the trip to each mobile device, for convenient, easy access. The full itinerary for the trip, including hotel, air, and car reservations with confirmation numbers will be available, along with driving directions, maps to appointments and weather forecasts for destination cities. Web content is provided by:
Provides driving directions, maps, real-time traffic alerts and location finder
ReadySyncGo! supports SyncML, an open industry specification for universal data synchronization. As new mobile devices adhering to the specification are introduced, ReadySyncGo! will seamlessly synchronize with those devices.
According to J. Gerry Purdy, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Mobile Insights, a leading market research firm in Mountain View, CA, "Synchrologic is an established player in the data synchronization market offering business professionals and IT Managers the tools they need to manage information on their mobile devices. With ReadySyncGo!, Synchrologic is bringing immediate productivity and convenience to mobile professionals by solving the problem of managing and maintaining business and personal data across the different mobile devices they depend on everyday."
"As mobile professionals come to rely on multiple mobile devices for both personal and business data, making sure the same information is available across each of these devices presents a growing challenge. ReadySyncGo! automates this process and also provides relevant, personalized content such as driving directions to a hotel or meeting, car rental locations and the weather, based on existing calendar entries," said Bill Jones, vice president of product management for Synchrologic. "ReadySyncGo! leverages our experience and expertise over the last five years developing complex enterprise synchronization solutions and is a valuable product for a company looking to enhance the productivity of their busy professionals and executives."
