Good - Enterprise Wireless Messaging and Application Access

www.good.com Good Technology is the leader in wireless handheld computing software and service, using industry standards to provide the corporate applications enterprises need on the handhelds they choose over the networks they prefer. The company’s GoodAccess and GoodLink products extend mission-critical enterprise applications—including Microsoft Exchange, Oracle, salesforce.com and Siebel—to mobile employees when and where they need them.

Catering to the mobile professional, the Good System includes messaging and corporate data access, as well as a full suite of management features and functions. We offer customers unsurpassed flexibility by allowing them to choose their wireless carrier(s), platform(s), network(s), and device(s). Specifically, we support Palm, Pocket PC, and Symbian (in 2006) operating systems, the latest handheld devices and smartphones that run them, and nearly every wireless carrier, all over the world. Plus, our integration with third-party applications lets our customers view, edit, and interact with documents and attachments, providing the most complete laptop-like experience.

GoodLink is a wireless messaging and application access system that gives mobile field forces a synchronized connection to Microsoft Exchange Server and other critical applications. It not only offers low total cost of ownership; it provides software, service, support, powerful fleet management capabilities, and state-of-the-art security—including VeriSign triple-DES end-to-end encryption of all e-mail, data, and attachments.

Good Technology has partnered with industry leaders such as Microsoft, palmOne, PalmSource, VeriSign, and others. Our partnership with PalmSource and palmOne offers the combination of GoodLink with Palm OS on the Treo 650 and 600—a wireless offering that BusinessWeek described as "like having your desktop in a handheld." This combination was recently rated as the Best Product of 2003 by PC Magazine.

Microsoft and Good Technology broaden the range of devices further with support for Microsoft Windows Mobile for Pocket PC smart phones. Chris Hill, lead product manager of the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft Corp., says, "GoodLink also enables the ability to view native, rich attachments on Pocket PCs, including Pocket Word and Excel files, making it a natural fit for Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs."
