Smartner and Vodafone Italy sign agreement for always-on mail


Award-winning mobile email solution now available for business professionals in Italy

Smartner, the European leader in mobile email and office solutions, today announced that it will offer Always-on Mail, a mobile email solution for business users in Italy. Always-on Mail is based on Smartner Duality, a carrier-grade technology platform scalable to serve customers of even the largest mobile operators. The solution is immediately available throughout Italy under an agreement signed by Smartner and Vodafone Italy.

Always-on Mail extends access to Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes to the Vodafone Qtek 2020 PDA. It automatically pushes new emails to the device, without any user interaction, and provides users with complete control over their desktop functions while away from their office. Users can access their email and calendar in real-time, with all actions mirrored simultaneously on their desktop.
Companies of any size can enjoy the benefits of Always-on Mail, as the unique technology powering Smartner Always-on Mail enables the solution to be affordably deployed in environments ranging from only a few to thousands of users.
"We are very proud to bring an open-standards push email solution to Italy. Our cooperation with Vodafone enables business users in one of Europe’s largest and most dynamic markets to enjoy the ultimate mobile email experience, one that is easy-to–use, secure, reliable and affordable," said Jussi Räisänen, Vice President, South Europe, Smartner. "The Always-on Mail is a truly global solution to email access."
