Dell and Good Technology today announced a strategic alliance to collaborate on wireless products and services for corporate customers.
The companies are exploring reference designs for next-generation handheld devices and services to make wireless email and data access easy and affordable.
"Customers of all sizes are implementing or evaluating wireless technologies throughout their enterprises, and our intent is to work with Good to deliver products and services that are simple and affordable for them to deploy," said John Medica, senior vice president of Dell's Product Group. "Dell is a leader in wireless computing and we believe Good offers great technology for next generation solutions."
"Partnering with Dell, the leading U.S. provider of enterprise computing systems, will accelerate the already dramatic market adoption of our GoodLink wireless email and data system," said Danny Shader, CEO of Good Technology, Inc. "Dell and Good customers can get started right away with a GoodLink wireless system running on Dell servers -- and leverage that same system going forward as the backbone to power next-generation devices."
The GoodLink wireless email and data system creates tremendous value for companies by providing mobile workers with continuous access to mission-critical company information. GoodLink synchronizes wireless handhelds with company servers -- without cradling -- so users are always up-to-date and only have to touch data once.
With GoodLink, users remain connected to corporate email, contacts, calendar, notes and tasks -- as well as enterprise data stored in CRM, ERP and SFA applications -- so they can be productive while they are away from their desktops. GoodLink's zero desktop software architecture dramatically reduces cost of ownership by eliminating the costly need for IT professionals to install software or cradles on end-users' desktops.
