Omni Technology Solutions Inc., (Omni), announced the immediate availability of support for Windows Mobile 5 Smart Phones for Omni Mobile, the company's GroupWise wireless email solution. Omni Mobile for Windows Mobile 5 Smart Phones is available through Omni's global reseller channel. Omni Mobile's list of supported GroupWise wireless email platforms now includes:

"Our customers are excited about Windows Mobile 5 Smart Phones being added to our list of supported platforms," said Trevor Poapst, Director of Global Marketing and Channel Strategy for Omni. "The Samsung BlackJack, Motorola Q, Cingular 2125 and other Windows Mobile 5 Smart Phones are bringing the mobile collaboration experience to new levels of sophistication."

Omni Mobile provides more than just PIM synchronization - it provides a complete on-line and off-line GroupWise caching client for mobile devices. Its native GroupWise look-and-feel leads to quick user adoption and high user satisfaction. Omni Mobile's server module installs on customers' existing Novell NetWare, Linux or Windows servers.

"By adding Windows Mobile 5 Smart Phone support to Omni Mobile, we are able to satify our customers' growing needs and mobile experience expectations," explains Aldo Zanoni, CEO and Managing Director for Omni. "Omni Mobile customers appreciate the simplicity of Omni Mobile and the fact that it installs directly on their existing GroupWise servers. Unlike other GroupWise wireless email solutions that provide PIM synchronization, Omni Mobile does not require a Windows server be installed as the mobile gateway. Omni Mobile delivers a unique and substantial value proposition because it leverages customers' existing GroupWise investments in Novell NetWare, SUSE Linux or Microsoft Windows servers. There are no additional firewall configuration requirements, no additional protocols to configure, no external databases to manage and no additional backup, anti-virus or server patching requirements."

"Omni Mobile's ability to deliver cross-platform mobile device support is directly tied to our use of Crossfire from AppForge," continues Zanoni. "Crossfire allows us to add support for new mobile platforms and operating systems without having to rewrite Omni Mobile for each specific platform. The next platform to be added to Omni Mobile will be BlackBerry devices, expected in December, 2006."
