Associated Carrier Group Launches Push-Email Solution from Nokia

Nokia / November 1st, 2006

The Associated Carrier Group announced today that it has selected Intellisync Wireless Email from Nokia as the push e-mail offering for its member carriers. Developed as a single, manageable platform for both mobile carriers and enterprises, Intellisync Wireless Email from Nokia provides network-based wireless e-mail, synchronization of data and files and integrated device management – all over-the-air.

“Wireless E-mail represents an under-penetrated market for wireless carriers,” said ACG President Greg Latour. “The ability to use Intellisync software from Nokia on both Palm OS and Windows Mobile 5.0 positions us well in today’s marketplace.”

“ACG’s member carriers have recognized that business mobility is not merely a ’Fortune 50’ phenomenon ­– it is being embraced by businesses large and small, in urban and rural areas alike,” said Tom Libretto, director product marketing, Enterprise Solutions, Nokia. “Choosing the push-email solution from Nokia allows these carriers to compete in the rapidly expanding business mobility market and build customer loyalty among their business users. By continuing to expand our platform to offer mobile users more applications, choice and flexibility, Nokia is empowering operators to drive mobility deeper into the enterprise.”

Intellisync Wireless Email from Nokia is a full-featured wireless e-mail solution that connects users to their e-mail, calendar, contacts, notes and task lists while away from the office. Users can view attachments, respond to meeting requests and manage e-mail while on the road.

ACG selected Nokia because of its support for a range of mobile devices, whether it’s Palm or Windows.
