Speaking at the launch of the service, which allows users to receive information held in Microsoft Exchange 2000 accounts via their WAP phones, Tukun Chatterjee, product manager at Netstore, revealed: “There are a number of areas where our partners can benefit.
“We are going to get our channel partners together and brief them, not only about Max2000, but also about Exchange 2000.
“Resellers make a pretty decent margin on reselling our Exchange 2000 service and equally so for Max2000, for which there isn’t a great deal of set-up or consultation involved. However, they have the capability to add whatever implementation support the customer may need around it.”
Chatterjee added that Max2000 would furnish resellers with the ability to branch out into another area. “That route,” he said, “could be as a handset retailer, a mobile telephone retailer, or an ISP, where they buy in Internet services and sell them on. Their own imagination will be what drives that.”
On the merits of the service, Chatterjee enthused: “Max2000 capitalises on the importance of groupware applications in today’s mobile business environment and allows users to view business-critical information when they want to.”
