Hutch joins hand with Microsoft; brings Office on mobile phones

MUMBAI: Hutch has launched 'Microsoft Outlook on Hutch', a service that allows Hutch users to access their office emails on their mobile phones. A unique corporate solution developed jointly by Hutch and Microsoft, the service enables access to corporate emails using either SMS or GPRS service.

 

Announced jointly by Hutchison Essar director Asim Ghosh and Microsoft India managing director Rajiv Kaul, the service will enable Hutch subscribers to read, download, edit and send Microsoft Outlook emails with Microsoft Word, Excel or Power Point, says an official release.

With help of the service, all Hutch users can receive SMS alerts informing them about new email in their corporate mailbox and can read the entire mail on their mobile phones. The Microsoft Outlook on Hutch' service is secure and accessible even when the user is roaming, claims the release.

The service can be activated by setting an option on the user's corporate mail server (Microsoft Exchange 2000 / 2003), which allows a copy of office mails to be delivered to the user's Hutch phone. Using this service, Hutch users can view emails over SMS for a monthly fee of Rs 49, informs the release.

The base service is available to Hutch GPRS users at no extra cost. For those who choose to use the ActiveSync facility to download, edit and send mail in MS Word, Excel or Power Point formats, a fee of RS 499 per month will be applicable.

Commenting on the service, Ghosh, said, "This brings to the mass business market the two great leaps of communication - business email and mobile telephony. Now for the first times, business users can manage their emails with a wide range of handsets - not a service reserved for the elite."

According to Kaul, said, "The PC and the mobile phone are technological innovations that have dramatically improved the lives of consumers worldwide, and the corporate user in particular has been one of the greatest beneficiaries. The Outlook on Hutch service combines the two to offer a powerful new tool to corporate users - allowing them to use a single device to communicate and stay connected."

"We are committed to providing our customers with a seamless computing experience. Customers should be able to leverage our technologies and their investments in infrastructure, no matter what access device they use. The launch of this service is a result of that commitment, " Kaul added.

"We have always worked with leading international partners for developing innovative services for our users. We are happy to be working with Microsoft for bringing corporate solutions that help improve our subscribers' productivity," added Ghosh.
