Hostopia launches SyncJe for Palm OS(TM)



    Nexthaus unit adds to their leading line of data synchronization tools

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, and FT. LAUDERDALE, FL, Jan. 3 /CNW/ - Hostopia.com,
Inc. (TSX: H), today announced the release of their latest wireless mobility
data synchronization application, SyncJe for Palm OS(TM). Developed by
Nexthaus, Hostopia's wireless mobility technology unit, the Palm OS client
further extends Nexthaus's line of SyncSuite(TM) applications that include
SyncJe for Blackberry, iPhone, Outlook, Outlook Express, and Lotus Notes.
    SyncJe for Palm OS allows users to wirelessly synchronize data between
their Palm OS devices, desktop or mobile computers, and Internet applications
such as web-based email. The application installs directly onto Palm OS
devices, enabling centrally stored Personal Information Management (PIM) data
to be exchanged wirelessly. Users can "sync" their contacts, calendars, notes
and tasks free from any device cradles or wires and can even set an automatic
synchronization scheduler. SyncJe is compatible with any SyncML server and
comes with one year of maintenance and support.
    Hostopia's Chief Marketing Officer, Paul D. Engels, comments, "Businesses
and consumers are increasingly demanding greater functionality and
productivity from their email services and mobility devices. SyncJe for Palm
OS helps link otherwise unconnected devices with the ease and power of
wireless connectivity. Critical data to every user such as contacts and
calendar entries can now update wherever you are, in real time."
    Hostopia will market the new service through three channels: direct
retail at www.nexthaus.com, through Hostopia's wholesale channel of leading
global telecommunication and mobility service providers (www.hostopia.com),
and an all-new channel for Hostopia, Nexthaus Resellers. The introduction of
the Nexthaus Reseller Program allows VARs, systems integrators and
telecommunication/mobility services professionals to directly market SyncJe
software from their websites and receive referral commissions from Nexthaus.
All Nexthaus Resellers get secure access to a reseller program administration
interface allowing them to track their sales and program earnings. SyncJe
products can be purchased individually for $29.95, or bundled with SyncJe for
Outlook, for $59.95.
    Hostopia's Chief Technology Officer, Dirk Bhagat adds, "SyncJe for Palm
OS adds another significant component to our comprehensive line-up of data
synchronization applications: Nexthaus SyncSuite. Full compatibility with
Oracle's Collaboration Suite has made these client applications very
attractive to large enterprises. We believe that the ability to fully sync
one's PIM data across multiple devices and platforms at a low client software
price represents compelling value to business people, or consumers, looking to
get more from their mobility device. Combined with our other SyncJe clients
for Blackberry, iPhone, and Microsoft Outlook/Outlook Express, we believe we
now cover the most popular devices and email clients on the market."
