Yodlee, the pioneer and leading provider of account aggregation services, and Palm, Inc. (Nasdaq:PALM), the leading provider of handheld computers, today announced an agreement to create the MyInfo service, a Yodlee-powered aggregation service available to all wirelessly enabled Palm(TM) handheld computer users. An integrated component of Palm's new MyPalm(TM) portal, announced separately today, the MyInfo service gives MyPalm users one-click access to all their personal information. Users can access and manage bank balances, stock portfolios, travel reservations, bills, and more -- from thousands of providers in a single web clipping application.
"The MyPalm portal is a perfect fit for our aggregation service because it puts users' highly relevant, personal information right at their fingertips -- providing the ultimate convenience for the mobile user," said Anil Arora, chief executive officer of Yodlee.com. "Our collaboration with Palm creates a truly personal experience for wirelessly enabled Palm handheld users."
"Consumers want the convenience of having their disparate information pulled together in one easy-to-access place," said Frances Hoge, vice president, content and marketing for Content and Access, at Palm, Inc. "Yodlee represents this type of next-generation solution that we believe will drive the continued adoption of handheld computers."
MyInfo Wireless Capabilities
The MyInfo service enables users to do the following:
-- access personal information from more than 2,000 websites --
including bank balances, travel reservations, investments, e-mail subject headers, news headlines, bills and shopping orders -- directly on the MyPalm portal or on their Palm handhelds with a single, secure login; -- view real-time summaries of all their recent account activities in one place; -- insert personal account information from the web directly into Date Book, Memo, and To Do applications on the handheld; and -- sign up and add new web accounts directly from their Palm handhelds.
The MyInfo service helps simplify life with convenient access to all the information that matters most -- anywhere, anytime. In addition, it leverages Certicom ECC and SSL security technologies to protect sensitive user data in transit, and employs advanced secure network infrastructure and physical security measures to keep user data private.
