Fujitsu Software plans to integrate NetMind?s Minder technology with its Bye Desk Link software to ?bring the Internet to your pocket?.
The combination will give wireless users real-time online information updates to Web-based data, according to Fujitsu. This will be done by introducing a new Web Agent to Fujitsu?s Bye Desk Link wireless server software.
"Together, we have created the perfect solution for 'people-on-the-go' who want to be notified of important information in real time yet can't afford to be tied down to their PCs,? commented Timo Salomaki, director of product marketing, mobile and wireless solutions for Fujitsu.
Fujitsu Bye Desk Link is a software application that is installed on a corporate intranet server, or hosted by an Internet Service Provider (ISP) or GSM based cellular service carrier. It enables users of digital wireless devices (such as mobile phones, pocket computers, and pagers) send and receive emails, to query stock quotes, news, restaurant information and user directories, and to receive real time information and data updates via one familiar application interface and one password.
Since Bye Desk's arrival this spring an increasing number of its customers have gone mobile without having to give up connections to their desktop, the Internet and communcations links, according to Fujitsu. It has been particularly popular with managers on extended business trips and those who want to stay in touch with up-to-the-minute Internet information during heavily scheduled days.
"Combining Minder and ByeDesk Link together makes for a very elegant solution," said Matt Freivald, founder and chief executive of Net Mind Systems. "Since both technologies are server-based, there's no need to worry about having the right software on your computer?.
