SAN JOSE, CA – February 24, 2009 – Notify Technology Corporation (OTC BB NTFY), today announced that it has licensed Microsoft Corporation’s Exchange ActiveSync™ Protocol technology. Exchange ActiveSync is a communication protocol that provides wireless push email, calendar, contacts and task synchronization. Exchange ActiveSync is available on all Windows Mobile-based devices and Exchange ActiveSync-enabled devices offered through Microsoft partners like Apple, Palm, and Nokia. Notify has incorporated the Exchange ActiveSync protocol into its NotifyLink and just recently announced NotifySync™ for BlackBerry™ product. The new NotifySync product is targeted at providing BlackBerry users a simple direct connect that provides wireless push email, calendar, contacts and task synchronization to those email platforms such as the Microsoft Exchange Server, the Kerio MailServer, the Zimbra Collaboration Suite, and the CommuniGate Pro Server platform which all utilize the Exchange ActiveSync protocol technology as their primary mobility interface.
“Increasingly, people depend on their mobile phones for anywhere, anytime access to digital information while on the move,” said Craig Shank, general manager of interoperability for Microsoft Corp. “This is where creating interoperability between mobile platforms comes to play. We’re pleased that Notify’s licensing of the intellectual property rights to use the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync protocols in its NotifySync product will open up new opportunities for BlackBerry consumers.”
“We are excited to publicly announce our licensing of Microsoft’s Exchange ActiveSync Protocol used by our NotifyLink and NotifySync products. We would like to thank Microsoft for the opportunity they have given us in licensing their intellectual property to create exciting new products for the mobility market,” said Paul DePond, President and Founder of Notify Technology. “Over the past year, our email collaboration suite partners, who have incorporated Exchange ActiveSync for their mobility solution, have been giving us a loud and clear message of their need of an ActiveSync solution for their mobile users who only want to use a BlackBerry.”
