Good Technology Unveils Mobile Messaging for IBM Lotus Domino

Good Technology, Inc., the trusted standard for enterprise mobile computing software and service, unveiled Good(TM) Mobile Messaging for IBM Lotus(R) Domino(R). The combined power of IBM and Good Technology offers the millions of Lotus Notes users true enterprise-class mobile collaboration and computing capability, with secure wireless access on the new Motorola Q(TM); the Cingular 8125 Pocket PC; the Palm(R) Treo(TM) family, including the new Treo 700w and Treo 700p smartphones, the Nokia E61 and other Windows Mobile devices.

“Enabling access to information beyond the office is a business goal of New York Life Insurance Company. The mobile employee is now the norm rather than the exception and access to corporate data while on the move is an ever-increasing need for our business,” said Scott Speaker, assistant vice president of Architecture, New York Life Insurance Company. “Realizing that email, calendaring and contacts are the first step to facilitating this mobility, New York Life engaged Good Technology in a beta evaluation of their Lotus Domino based Mobile Messaging product. Good Mobile Messaging performed well during our tests. We were pleased with the product’s ease of installation, security, reliability, over-the-air provisioning and management, and rich user experience.”
