Motorola Good Technology Group Expands Worldwide Device Support for Good™ Mobile Messaging
Good™ Products Now Supported on More than 300 Device/Carrier Combinations Worldwide
SANTA CLARA, CA. — May 2008 — Motorola, Inc.’s (NYSE: MOT) Good Technology Group today announced that it is expanding worldwide device support for Good’s mobile email, application access, and over-the-air security and management solution to more than 300 device/carrier combinations. With more than 10,000 customers, Good is extending its role as a leading provider of enterprise mobile computing solutions for organizations that want a centralized solution that can be deployed across multiple devices, carriers and mobile operating systems worldwide.
“Good’s ability to run on multiple devices allows us to offer our users greater device choice than other systems. And from an IT perspective, the end-user and management experience is consistent across devices, which makes support much easier,” said Rob Mancini, program manager, Citywide Messaging Office of the Chief Technology Officer for the Government of the District of Columbia. “The fact that Good runs on any GSM or CDMA carrier also permits departments and agencies to select the carrier that best fits their needs.”
Increased Functionality for Simplified Device Support
With today’s device support update, Good has added functionality to help ensure that each supported device on an enterprise’s network receives a compatible version of Good’s client software. This simplifies the provisioning process for IT professionals and helps ensure that users have the best mobile experience possible by alerting them to incompatibilities between their device and a particular Good client software version. In addition Good has made available a device support portal and user forum for IT administrators to lookup supported devices.
Worldwide Device Support Program – from the Shop Floor to the Corner Office
With the expansion of the Good Worldwide Device Support program, Good now supports smartphones from multiple manufacturers across all carriers that offer these devices worldwide. Worldwide device support is now available for the MOTO Q™ smartphone family, the Motorola MC35 and MC70 enterprise digital assistant (EDA) line, as well as select handhelds from Palm, HTC, and Samsung. The Good Worldwide Device Support program is in addition to Good’s existing certified device support programs with carrier resellers such as AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Telstra, O2 and others.
“Enterprise mobility needs have greatly evolved over the years. It began with the need for mobile email capabilities in the executive suite. However, today, enterprises need an end-to-end mobile computing solution that provides all the functionality of the desktop experience across the entire spectrum of employees – wherever they reside in the world and on whatever device they may be using.” said Sue Forbes, senior director of marketing and product management, Motorola Good Technology Group. “Good’s Worldwide Device Support program provides a consistent user and IT management experience on handhelds all the way from the shop floor to the corner office.”
