Good expands network for Treo 600.
Good Technology, Inc., the industry standards-based leader in wireless messaging and corporate data access, today announced its entry into the Canadian market, continuing the company's global expansion. The GoodLink(TM) system is now available on the leading networks in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Good also announced its first Canadian customer, Money Mart, and the addition of four Canadian value added resellers to its Business Partner Program. Money Mart's parent company, Dollar Financial Group, Inc., owns and operates the largest international network of retail financial services stores, with over 1,700 locations in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K.
Heavily dependent upon email to stay current with customers, Money Mart had specific requirements for a mobile messaging solution. The company needed an easy-to-use interface with the familiar functionality of Microsoft Outlook, as well as robust security and mature administration tools. After a thorough evaluation of both Research In Motion's BlackBerry(TM) solution and GoodLink, Money Mart chose to deploy GoodLink on palmOne Treo(TM) 600 smartphones.
"Mobile access to data and messaging is mission-critical for our executive and field teams," said Bruce Cumming, vice president information technology, Money Mart. "Good Technology is the only vendor that offered us an intuitive interface with robust functionality and the freedom to choose from a range of wireless devices. GoodLink also gives our professionals the highest level of security for their email communications while on the road."
To provide the greatest flexibility, service and support to mobile messaging and data access customers, Good has also added four new Canadian VARs to its channel program.
"Our customers require mobile technology solutions that support third-party applications and allow them to avoid vendor lock-in," said Azhar Khan, president and CEO, Wireless Sigma. "We are thrilled to work with Good Technology to bring truly flexible, industry-standards based wireless messaging to the Canadian market."
"There is no longer any reason that executives and service professionals should be less productive or effective when working away from the office," said Peter Zver, president of Montreal-based PensEra Knowledge Technologies. "We have worked with Good Technology to empower mobile lawyers in U.S. based law firms, and we are confident that Good and PensEra can deliver high value to Canadian professionals."
"We are driven to meet the mobile messaging needs of customers worldwide through the devices, networks and channel partners they prefer," said Terry Austin, president, Field Operations, Good Technology. "Providing broad choice for enterprises such as Money Mart on industry standard devices supports Good's goal of giving customers the best service on the world's leading networks."
