eCal Customers to 'Go Wireless' with ThinAirApps Technology

Newly Developed Application Brings Access to Critical Calendar Information to Wireless Devices

ThinAirApps, Inc. and eCal today announced a partnership that will leverage ThinAirApps' wireless software platform and toolkit to bring wireless connectivity to eCal's calendaring offerings.

The agreement enables eCal to offer its Web and enterprise customers access to their calendar information in real-time from any wireless Palm(TM) handheld or Internet-enabled mobile phone. The brandable wireless applications can link eCal users to their calendar, contacts and tasks.

The wireless applications were co-developed by eCal and ThinAirApps using ThinAirApps' Wireless SDK for ThinAir Server. The applications utilize an XML-based custom interface that facilitates user access to calendar information. eCal intends to use the ThinAir SDK to extend the current applications, as well as to create new applications for other wireless devices.

"Calendar information is such essential data that mobile workers need to have it at their fingertips when they are out of the office," said Stephanie Agresta, director of new business and strategic alliances, ThinAirApps. "This partnership is a great example of the kinds of productive applications that can be built with Into ThinAir(TM) technology."

eCal has also licensed ThinAirApps' groupware access applications for Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, IMAP and POP messaging systems to provide additional solutions to enterprise customers. eCal will be deploying ThinAir Server to enable wireless communication between mobile workforce users and their eCal hosted calendars.

"Wireless communications is an essential value-added feature to our platform," said Rick Rasansky, eCal CEO. "And there's clearly a growing demand for wireless connectivity to personal and business information. ThinAirApps' application was integrated in direct response to our customer's needs. This functionality is just the beginning of an increasing array of applications and features for the mobile market."
