Today, organisations need an effective way to provide their increasingly mobile workforce secure wireless access and management of their Email, Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks (PIM). As these organisations source a solution, they are faced with a variety of challenges including differentiating the benefits between wireless carriers, wireless devices, and whether to source an "On Premise" or an "On Demand" Solution to meet their mobility needs.
An "On Premise" solution will require IT resources in the form of initial hardware procurement, long-term server management, ongoing time allocated to install, evaluate, place a solution into production, manage the solution, and support internal end users. In many cases, organisations are pressed for an immediate mobility solution but do not have the personnel or financial resources to deploy an on premise solution requiring on-going maintenance and management of a server driven solution.
The alternative is London Web's NotifyLink "On Demand" service.
London Web's NotifyLink "On Demand" service is based on a client-server architecture comprised of the NotifyLink "On Demand" Enterprise server hosted at our secure data centre's and the NotifyLink platform specific device clients. NotifyLink "On Demand" is ideal for organisations whose employees include mobile professionals who need real-time "automatic" synchronisation of their existing email to a variety of supported mobile devices. With the NotifyLink "On Demand", mobile users have the ability to read, compose, reply, forward, mark as read, and delete email messages from their mobile device.
How NotifyLink On Demand Works
When using NotifyLink, emails will be synchronised to a user's mobile device. Any email forwarded to the mobile device must meet any filter criteria specified by either the individual user or various policies established by the IT administrator. All email originated from the mobile device will be synchronised with the user's desktop "Sent" file. A copy of all items sent from the device will be maintained within your organisation's mail server. If a user deletes an email on the mobile device, NotifyLink can automatically place that email in the "Trash" folder on the users desktop. Users may also specify that upon reading an email on their mobile device, the status of "Read" will be updated back at their desktop.
NotifyLink supports a robust set of filters that are controlled by the mobile end-user. Filters can be set based upon keyword searches in the subject, sender, and body of each email, recipient type, sender, or any combination of the aforementioned.
NotifyLink supports native attachment download and upload for *Symbian, Windows Mobile and PalmOS wireless devices as well as attachment support for a variety of Blackberry phone devices. In addition, NotifyLink provides user configurable attachment support regarding information about the number of attachments, names of the attachments, and sizes of the attachments. This information is made available as part of the email displayed on the mobile device. NotifyLink also gives users the ability to forward an attachment to any other email user.
Mobile Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks
NotifyLink provides bi-directional mobile synchronisation of the user's Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks. Regardless of whether the information was initiated from the mobile device or at the user's desktop, the information will be transmitted wirelessly, keeping personal calendars continually up to date at both the server level and the mobile device level.
For data encryption from the NotifyLink Server to the wired or wireless device, NotifyLink supports both Triple DES and the latest Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption algorithms.
For mobile device to NotifyLink Server authentication, NotifyLink supports AES authentication.
For data encryption from the NotifyLink "On Demand" Server to the customer's email platform, NotifyLink supports SSL connectivity.
