Duo Brings Salesforce.com CRM to PDAs
Salesforce.com, AvantGo team up to bring disconnected access to Salesforce.com apps from PDA devices.Hosted CRM service provider Salesforce.com Inc. and mobile enterprise software developer AvantGo Inc. announced a partnership Tuesday to bring disconnected access to Salesforce.com applications from PDA devices. The companies will jointly offer AvantGo Mobile Sales for Salesforce.com, a channel on Hayward, Calif.-based AvantGos My AdvantGo wireless service. The new service will allow customers to access, update and manage their Salesforce.com tasks, accounts, contacts and opportunities on their handheld devices. All customer information can be synchronized locally to the handheld device. Wireless connectivity is not required.
Salesforce.com offered its own wireless service, known as the Airforce Wireless Edition, late last year. That service, however, requires a wireless connection, according to company officials in San Francisco.
