OfficeDomain Gives Worldwide PDA Users Ability to Access Messages on Palm and Pocket PC Devices with Its New Wireless Communications Management Initiative

Award-winning MessageASAP Unified Communications Service Offers Users Flexibility and Freedom to View, Reply, Organize and Send Messages on Any HTML-enabled Device

OfficeDomain, provider of the most comprehensive unified communications solution in the market, today launched its wireless communications management initiative. The first phase of the initiative extends access to the company's award-winning unified communications service, MessageASAP, to personal digital assistants (PDAs), providing even greater flexibility and access for users.

The expanded MessageASAP technology enables subscribers to use whatever platform they choose to reply to, forward and organize their messages - even sending or forwarding a message to a fax machine. Whether operating a Palm or Pocket PC- driven PDA, MessageASAP lets users access and manage communications through wireless modem, wired modem or network card. No matter what method of connectivity users have, MessageASAP enables them to access and manage their messages on their own terms. The technology uses an HTML browser, which combined with Internet access, opens up the door for users to access and manage communications using MessageASAP from any browser-enabled device, including WebTV. No other unified communications service provides this level of freedom.

"With the addition of PDAs to our access options, MessageASAP offers users the most comprehensive, yet flexible and reliable solution they need to suit their lifestyles," said John Stetson, vice president of Business Development at OfficeDomain. "The growing popularity of PDAs, among both business and consumer users, was a clear indication that we needed to expand our service. We're the first provider to offer such a complete package of services accessible through nearly every device out on the market today. We're keeping up with technology as it evolves, and the only thing that will hinder us are the limitations of the devices themselves."

Although PC sales continue to decline, users have latched on to the portable device. According to industry analyst Gartner Group, PDA shipments are expected to grow from 9.4 million in 2000 to approximately 30 million by 2004. These users reflect MessageASAP's user base, ranging from mobile workers, to small office/home office (SOHO) professionals to general consumers.

"OfficeDomain's robust suite of message management products has transitioned extremely well from the personal computer to the newest Internet information appliance - the wireless PDA," said Peter Davidson of Davidson Consulting. "Where other players in the unified messaging space have carved out specific niches, OfficeDomain has addressed the full spectrum of available messaging technologies."
