Outlook Plug-In For Mobiles Wins Award
The Sierra Wireless-Wavefront Developer Program has chosen Apisphere’s plug-in for Microsoft Outlook as a Best-in-Class winner. The program is designed to find the best enterprise or consumer applications that take advantage of the mobile broadband and GPS capabilities built into Sierra Wireless’ adapter line of PC cards, ExpressCards, and USB modems.
Apisphere for Outlook permits users to send and receive location-smart messages on their mobile devices or broadband-powered laptops based on their Outlook calendar and location. When a meeting is scheduled in Outlook, the plug-in creates a location-smart “zone” around the meeting location and the calendar entry. This zone activates several features, including mapping, real-time traffic updates, and geo-triggered voice and text messages for reminders on the go.
The plug-in is powered by Apisphere’s GEM platform, which provides a carrier-agnostic solution that allows the ISV or enterprise to build its applications to a standard set of application programming interfaces regardless of the carrier requirements, handsets, operating systems, or enterprise integration structure.
