iAnywhere Solutions AvantGo Mobile Sales Supports Salesforce.com S3

6/25/2003 - Salesforce.com, the world leader in delivering software-as-service, and iAnywhere Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), announced that iAnywhere Solutions’ AvantGo Mobile SalesTM immediately supports the new salesforce.com S3 without the need for any new software upgrades, providing customers seamless and immediate access to the new salesforce.com S3 enhancements. A .NET Web service, AvantGo Mobile Sales for salesforce.com S3 enables on-the-go sales professionals to access their key salesforce.com S3 accounts, contacts, opportunities, tasks and calendars on handheld Pocket PC or Palm® devices, either wirelessly (including both public wireless and Wi-Fi connections) or by syncing periodically throughout the day.

iAnywhere Solutions also joins 6,700 other salesforce.com customers and 93,000 salesforce.com users in 110 countries who will immediately deploy salesforce.com S3, avoiding the substantial cost, resource, and time investments associated with upgrading legacy client/server customer relationship management (CRM) software.

"Salesforce.com S3, our most exciting release to date, will help our customers better realize the benefits of on-demand CRM," said salesforce.com chairman and CEO Marc Benioff. "In partnership with iAnywhere Solutions, we offer customers mobile access to key salesforce.com data -- driving increased efficiency and productivity – so that they are prepared no matter where sales opportunities may happen."
