Extending Email to Improve Business Performance

Large enterprises have invested millions of dollars to implement communication and collaboration tools that make their knowledge workers more productive. These employees exchange information effortlessly using email, manage their time more efficiently with calendaring and task management tools, and tap into the power of the Web to do their jobs more effectively.

Until now, however, deskless workers a group that represents more than half of all employees in the typical enterprise have been left behind. Most organizations find that it's too costly and complex to equip this large employee group with email and calendaring capabilities.

Enterprises need an email and calendaring solution that permits easy, cost-effective, anywhere, anytime access by deskless workers. In addition, the solution must also support access by the current base of knowledge workers who use existing communication and collaboration systems. To be effective, the solution must offer:

  • Extensive scalability
  • Complementary to current environment
  • Extensive standards support
  • High availability
  • Directory foundation
  • Broad e-mail and calendaring functionality
  • Support for Web-enabled mobile access devices
