iMobile File Distribution Automates Intranet Publishing
iMobile File Distribution ensures that important files are delivered and stored locally on mobile devices. This guarantees that all users have the same mission-critical information on their devices at all times.
Key features include:
-- Automated distribution of file and Web-based information such
as human resource policies and forms, departmental spreadsheets and documents, contracts, product information and pricing sheets, and service manuals. Users do not have to dial-in to the intranet to check for new versions of key files. -- Assignment of Internet or intranet pages to particular users or groups of users, giving mobile workers only the information they need. -- New file delivery options to streamline communications handling for laptops where mobile user administrative rights are limited. This gives administrators the added security to `lockdown' mobile machines if necessary. -- Clean retired files from users devices. iMobile Software Distribution Mobile Device Management
iMobile Software Distribution frees users from the burden of installing software updates on their mobile devices by allowing system administrators to remotely track, configure and install applications.
Key features include:

dynamically routes it to another server to complete the work
without any data loss or interruption to end users.
-- Instant alerts of any failure to pagers, cell phones, or
