FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SynchrologicTM Introduces Solution to Cut Email Sync Times 90%
PC Sync, A Lightning Fast Way for Mobile Employees to Sync Corporate Email, Calendar, and other PIM Data on Laptops or PCs
ANAHEIM, CA, October 9, 2002 - Synchrologic today announces a new feature within Synchrologic Email AcceleratorTM - PC Sync - that rapidly synchronizes email, calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes from Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Domino servers to Microsoft Outlook clients on laptops PCs.
Mobile workers know that syncing email to their laptops over wireless or dialup connectivity is a difficult experience at best. Traditional email and PIM synchronization solutions were designed for PCs with in-office, high-speed connections. These solutions are inadequate for workers while they are out of the office using standard dialup or wireless connectivity options - sometimes taking hours to sync, decreasing their productivity. At the same time, organizations are looking for ways to cut operations costs and demonstrate ROI on new and existing enterprise applications.
The new feature of Synchrologic Email Accelerator is designed to increase worker productivity, decrease support costs, and provide measurable ROI by:
- Providing filters for truncating long emails and filtering out large attachments, which greatly reduces sync sessions and the amount of data transferred.
- Giving users smart features such as Preview Mail that shows users only the headers of emails to be delivered - giving them the power to override preset filters or even deleting email before it is sent from the server.
- Compressing emails and attachments and offering checkpoint restart to shorten sync times resulting in decreased connectivity costs.
- Offering end-to-end encryption from the first bit of data sent over the Internet, which can eliminate the use of VPNs for email deployments.
"PC Sync makes the out-of-office email experience workable," said Bill Jones, vice president of products for Synchrologic. "Many mobile and tele-workers have just given up on syncing their emails when they are out of the office. With this new feature in Email Accelerator, these workers can cut their sync times by as much as 90%, gain offline accessibility to their email, and lower their communications expense. The introduction of PC Sync complements the other benefits of Email Accelerator, which provides mobile access to Exchange and Domino on Pocket PC and Palm-based handhelds, SyncML compatible mobile phones, and through WAP and Web browsers."
