Today Notify Technologies announced that the NotifySync for BlackBerry is now compatible with Microsoft Office 365. If you're not familiar with this product it simply offers BlackBerry users access to the MS Exchange ActiveSync platform if your organization does not have the BlackBerry Enterprise Server deployed.
NotifySync pushes your email, calendar and address book in addition to giving you access to the company 'Global Address Book'. Today's announcement is great because now it works with the MS cloud mail Office365. The Office365 buzz is really picking up steam lately as it just came out of Beta and Microsoft prepares for a full-on-assault of the Google Apps platform. How that is going and the long term success is a story for another day.
For today we're just announcing that for you BlackBerry users who feel as though they are wandering in the desert because your company won't install a free BES Express now have another option. The NotifySync is fairly value priced at $120/user for the first year and $30.00/each additional year. Keep reading for full press release.
SAN JOSE, Calif., July 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Notify Technology Corporation today announced the availability of NotifySyncTM 4.9.1 for BlackBerryTM which supports Microsoft's Exchange On-Line component of Office 365. This new version of NotifySync provides several new features, bug fixes and integration with Notify's new mobile device management product, NotifyMDM.
Notify will be displaying its NotifySync and NotifyMDM products this week at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference at the Los Angeles Conference Center.
"NotifySync provides organizations the missing BlackBerry support they need when considering moving to Microsoft's Office 365 Exchange On-Line email solution," said Paul DePond, President and Founder of Notify Technology. "With this new release of NotifySync, organizations and enterprises using Office 365 Exchange On-Line will be able to secure, manage, and monitor all of their BlackBerry, iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile devices from the "cloud" with our NotifyMDM. On Demand"
NotifySync supports Microsoft's Version 2.5, 12.0 and 12.1 Exchange ActiveSync protocol. In February Notify introduced its NotifyMDM solution to the market as providing organizations and enterprises of any size with unprecedented simplicity in centralized management and control of an array of wireless device platforms, such as iPhone/iPad, Android, webOS, and Windows Mobile, Windows Phone 7 and select Nokia S60 Symbian v3 wireless devices. NotifyMDM is offered as an On-Premise solution or an On-Demand "cloud" based service.
The NotifySync product is targeted at providing BlackBerry users a simple direct connect solution that provides wireless direct push email, calendar, contacts and task synchronization to those email platforms who offer the ActiveSync technology as their primary mobility interface. The NotifySync for BlackBerry solution is a downloadable client application which provides BlackBerry users with a new email box while interfacing to the native BlackBerry calendar, address book and task applications. NotifySync is simple to provision as it requires the same information as any mobile device supporting ActiveSync would require today. The NotifySync for BlackBerry solution directly communicates with the email platform's ActiveSync interface and supports all commercial cellular data networks as well as all 802.11x Wi-Fi networks. The new version of NotifySync supports all new BlackBerrys using the latest RIM 6.x operating system.
NotifySync Supported Email Platforms
The NotifySync for BlackBerry is ideal for organizations or businesses that require ActiveSync for their mobility solution such as the Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, 2007, 2010, BPOS, Office 365, LIVE@EDU, Hotmail, Novell GroupWise (DataSync Mobility Connector), the Kerio Connect, the Zimbra Collaboration Suite, the CommuniGate Pro Server, the Axigen Mail Server, Zarafa, Google Premier Apps, iPswitch, IceWarp, Bynari, SmarterMail, and Open-Xchange.
