Xerox Alliance Brings Secure Document Access to Mobile Enterprise Customers
Press release from the issuing company
NEW YORK, April 30, 2001-- Xerox Corporation today announced enhancements to its MobileDoc enterprise software and an alliance with GoAmerica Inc. (NASDAQ: GOAM), a nationwide wireless data and Internet services provider. Xerox is working to form an agreement with GoAmerica to offer secure, wireless access to the next generation of MobileDoc.
MobileDoc 2.0, integrated with GoAmerica's Go.Web technology, broadens the market for MobileDoc. Customers will now be able to use a wide variety of wireless devices and data networks to fax and e-mail documents remotely. The combined offering enables users to log into their network using a handheld device, personal digital assistant (PDA) or laptop computer and distribute files of any format along with a personalized note. Designed to increase the utility, portability and value of documents while away from the office, MobileDoc 2.0 is targeted towards highly mobile sales, service and support professionals.
"Working with Xerox, we will offer secure and flexible wireless access to Xerox's leading document management solutions," said Joe Korb, president of GoAmerica. "The value of wireless technology is quickly becoming evident to enterprises, and we are committed to providing the critical information that companies depend upon every day."
The Go.Web service provides access to corporate e-mail, intranets, databases and the Internet. Go.Web intelligently compresses and encrypts data, reformatting it for viewing on all major wireless devices and data networks.
MobileDoc 2.0 enables remote workers to eliminate time and distance barriers when responding to unexpected customer demands for information. MobileDoc 2.0 also provides greater ease-of-use than competitive products, as it is the only application available that enables users to save time by pre-programming frequently used e-mail addresses and fax numbers into the application.
