The mobile lifestyle is now one step closer for Kuwait residents, following today’s
announcement of a joint partnership between telecommunications leader MTC-Vodafone
and Microsoft Kuwait.
The full mobility solution offers secure accessibility to corporate applications
and real-time "push" e-mail. As a result of the agreement, executives will now be
able to receive Outlook, Calendar and Contacts listings on their mobile devices
with real-time updates, along with the more familiar Microsoft applications including
Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
The push e-mail facility allows for the instant transfer of arriving e-mail to mobile
devices connected over a wireless network.
Any business operating the Microsoft environment can benefit from the MTC-Microsoft
special package for voice, data and device. The service is expected to boost productivity
and enhance profitability for large and medium enterprises, particularly in the
petroleum, financial, logistics, and transport and government sectors.
Companies currently using the Microsoft Exchange 2003 SP2 environment need only
subscribe to the MTC offering to enjoy total voice and data mobility via their handheld
devices. In addition to attractive rates on voice and data, corporate subscribers
will also receive special prices on the Nokia E61 and i-Mate series.
In order to ensure a continuous mobility experience MTC has partnered with Info
Center, Kuwait to offer business users 24 X 7 support through a dedicated call center
number (2471861) for this campaign.
"Technology has become an integral part of our lives," said Rana Al-Rushaid, MTC
Marketing Director. "In association and partnership with Microsoft, we tried to
use that technology to better our lives, to help us live and work more productively."

of executives and business users easier in an era where technology has become invaluable
