ONSET EXPANDS AVAILABILITY OF METAmessage FOR WIRELESS™ TO U.K. Wednesday 6 June 2001 PDF Print : SOLUTIONS SOLVE E-MAIL ATTACHMENT PROBLEM Kommunicate Ltd. to Resell Onset Offerings in U.K.; METAmessage Solutions Increase Functionality of Devices Such As RIM BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds by Letting Users Read and Print Email Attachments Hertzelia, Israel and Santa Cruz, Calif. June 6, 2001- Onset Technology today announced that it will expand the availability of its popular METAmessage for Wireless™ solutions to the U.K. in the coming weeks via www.METAmessage.co.uk and through Kommunicate Ltd., a leading U.K.-based distributor. The offerings are being introduced in the U.K. to correspond with the U.K. availability of RIM’s BlackBerry wireless email solution that will operate over BT Cellnet’s GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) network. Free trials of the METAmessage service will also be available at http://www.METAmessage.co.uk in the coming weeks. Onset’s METAmessage solutions let wireless device users remotely read and print email attachments — which often contain business critical information such as contracts and contact information — in much the same manner as they would from their desktops. “The METAmessage for Wireless family has been tremendously successful in the U.S. because it fills the need among mobile users for ‘anywhere, anytime' access to their email attachments,” said Stewart Fox, vice president of worldwide sales for Onset. “We are making our award-winning product available to U.K. users to coincide with the release of the RIM®/BT Cellnet wireless email solution.” “Onset’s offerings are the industry’s top solutions for attachment reading and printing on wireless devices. Adding METAmessage to our roster of Onset products helps us provide cutting-edge functionality to our extensive customer base,” said Chris Thompson, Kommunicate Managing Director. Onset Solutions Provide Message-Conversion for Variety of Environments The METAmessage for Wireless message conversion solutions address a full range of individual and corporate users’ needs. The offerings support all of the industry’s popular file formats — more than 25 in total — giving users the ability to read or print Word files, Excel spreadsheets, Web pages from URL links, Outlook calendar and contact information files (.vcf and .ics), among other capabilities. The product’s enterprise and carrier editions also offer global address list (GAL) lookup. Onset will offer its full family of METAmessage for Wireless solutions in the U.K. These offerings include: METAmessage.co.uk, a simple, cost-effective, Internet-based ASP solution for workgroups and individuals; the METAmessage Conversion Server — Enterprise Edition, a highly scalable solution intended for corporations worldwide for whom “behind-the-firewall” security is especially important; and the METAmessage Conversion Server — Carrier Edition for server-farm-based environments such as telcos, ASP’s and ISP’s. The METAmessage.com ASP service will be offered at two levels: the Read service, which lets users view attachments as email text on their devices and the Read and Print service, which allows users to read attachments and also print them on any conveniently located fax machine. All of Onset’s METAmessage solutions support a variety of handheld devices including the Blackberry wireless handheld.
