London-based Smart Global, the UK’s first one-stop-shop for mobile data services targeted at SMEs, has launched ‘Smart Print2Fax’ and ‘Smart Spellchecker’ applications designed to make mobile email functionality even more productive. Powered by METAmessage® from Onset Technology, a leading developer of enterprise access software for wireless handheld devices, the applications are delivered by Smart Global in partnership with network operator O2. The applications are designed for use with the BlackBerry wireless platform from Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM, TSX: RIM).

Smart Print2Fax is a unique mobile enhancement enabling the user to print any email message, attachment (even if it can’t be opened on the device), web page or simple fax to any fax machine in over 40 countries. Smart Print2Fax basically turns any fax machine into an accessible printer.

Smart Spellchecker recreates the desktop experience of checking spelling mistakes on a mobile device, a feature so important when messaging on the move and is currently the only mobile solution of its kind.

Says Rachel Perry, COO of Smart Global: “We believe that the key to true mobile working is to make it as comfortable and familiar as the desktop experience. Complementary tools, such as Print2Fax and Spellchecker are applications we take for granted in the office but would be lost without. Onset’s expertise, as the leading B2B software developer together with our unique user provisioning and billing features, is now enabling us to further increase the productivity of busy workers on the move.”

Eyran Blumberg, VP of Products at Onset continues: “We are delighted to be working with Smart Global to power Smart Print2Fax and Smart Spellchecker. This association is a prime example of how Onset works with carriers to provide hosted solutions that increase the value they deliver to their customers.”

Smart Print2Fax is available on an initial 30-day free trial period*.


Notes to Editors:

* The 30-day free trial on Smart Print2Fax is limited to 20 printed fax pages
