iseemail™

Fully Clientless Mobile Email Solution for the Mass Market

The iseemail™ platform is designed to leverage operators’ existing infrastructure and provides a very cost-effective yet fully featured mobile email solution even on low-end mobile devices with the basic SMS interface. It makes every mobile device a smartphone which offers operators ample opportunities for generating additional revenues from their customers – even from customers not subscribing to data plans.

The iseemail solution is architected to utilize any available interface for providing full access to emails. This unique multi-modal approach offers subscribers to access emails using multiple interfaces such as SMS, MMS, WAP/XHTML and OMA-EMN. The iseemail platform supports virtually all email systems through standard POP3, IMAP4, EAS and WebDAV protocols. It therefore provides accesses to enterprise and consumer emails from Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, AOL, Hotmail and others. Being client-less with all the features, the iseemail solution makes almost any device behave like a smart phone.

In addition, the iseemail solution utilizes iseemedia’s core content adaptation and transcoding technology to provide fast and data-efficient (up to 90% data savings) access to all popular email attachments - documents, images, audio and video. The system is highly scalable and flexible for deployment by operators and/or 3rd party service providers.

The iseemail™ platform enables operators the opportunity to promote mobile email as a mass market solution as it provides full email functionality on nearly 100% of available devices. The solution addresses all customer concerns and makes mobile email suitable for wide market adoption. Customers no longer need to worry about device capability, email client installation on the device, costs associated with the service or the data charges. This allows operators to increase the customer base as well as the adoption of mobile email usage - both offer significant opportunities for increasing revenues.
