One of the problems related to handheld mobile devices is access to files and documents. Normally, to save certain files on your BlackBerry you have to send yourself an e-mail attachment.
But help is at hand. Today, Ottawa-based WICKSoft announced a remote file access, document viewing, and e-mail attachment solution for the BlackBerry .
WICKSoft’s PocketVPN is the first mobile-enterprise remote file access solution that allows BlackBerry users to remotely access files and folders located in their office.
According to WICKSoft CEO, Will Hickie, “with PocketVPN you can leave your files where they belong-- in the office. PocketVPN lets you send and manage your files from just about anywhere. You always get access to the most up-to-date information too, because you’re not duplicating files anymore.”
Apparently, the application in more than just file access. PocketVPN can convert documents into a mobile format in real time. Just click View, and seconds later you’re reading the document. It also lets you attach files to e-mail messages, and manage them in the same way you would as if you were in your office.
