“Vodafone Business Email enables us to offer mobile email support to companies of all sizes on a multitude of differing devices and popular platforms”, said Mark Bond, Director of Enterprise Marketing for Vodafone UK. “Working with Visto, Vodafone has developed a product to
meet the both the complex requirements of larger companies as well as the need of smaller organisations and individuals to add easy to manage email to their phone of choice.”
“Vodafone UK’s selection of Visto Mobile reaffirms Vodafone’s strong commitment to high customer satisfaction and service excellence,” said Brian Bogosian, chairman, president and CEO of Visto Corporation. “Because of a lack of device choice and the high costs of entry, mobile email use has been restricted to an executive elite. Vodafone Business Email will change this, and a wider UK business audience will soon be
enjoying the productivity benefits of mobile email safely and securely
on a device of their choice.”
The Visto Mobile platform is flexible enough to enable a mobile operator to deliver a consistent advanced user experience for all business customers: large enterprises running Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Domino, requiring a dedicated scalable server; smaller businesses running these mail platforms, requiring a solution to install on an individual’s PC; as well as small businesses wishing to take Internet-based email mobile. In addition, the Visto platform supports the broadest set of devices across all operating systems.
With the addition of Vodafone UK’s Vodafone Business Email solution,
Visto Mobile is now available from nine Vodafone operators and affiliates in Europe: Vodafone Germany, Vodafone Ireland, Vodafone Greece, Vodafone Italy, Vodafone Netherlands, Vodafone Spain, SFR
(France), and Elisa (Finland).
