Extended Systems Upgrades PC Sync Software for Enterprise IT

11 June 2003 - Extended Systems, a leading provider of mobile information management solutions for the enterprise, today released a new version of its desktop synchronisation software, XTNDConnect PC 5.0, which includes a variety of enterprise IT-focused features.

Although the majority of demand for Extended Systems' mobile sync solutions centres on the flagship server-based product, the number of enterprise customers who require a standard, desktop sync solution to support multiple device types continues to increase. With XTNDConnect PC 5.0, several of the high-ranking features included in the server-based product are now included in the desktop software.

Among these features is an IT configuration wizard that enables centralised deployment and management of XTNDConnect PC. The wizard gives IT a way to allow end users to easily perform installs and software updates, eliminating the need to touch every desktop equipped with the software. This feature will significantly reduce roll out time and upgrades of XCPC.

Other features include:

Schedule Sync-Asks the device to automatically sync at specified time intervals and allows sync via Bluetooth or 802.11
Quiet Sync-Asks the device to automatically sync each time it is placed in the cradle

Updated user-friendly interface
E-mail sync and filter enhancements (including Inbox, Sent Items and Drafts)
Availability in 11 languages
