WALTHAM, Mass.--(CCNMatthews - Aug 15, 2005) -

Meeting Maker Mobile Powered by Intellisync Provides Instant Wireless Access To Email and Online Calendars Anytime, From Anywhere

Meeting Maker, Inc., a leader in critical time and resource scheduling solutions, in conjunction with Intellisync Corporation (Nasdaq: SYNC), the number one platform-independent wireless messaging company, today announced Meeting Maker Mobile™ Powered by Intellisync™, the industry's most advanced wireless calendaring and email solution. The product addresses the needs of today's mobile workforce by providing secure wireless calendar and email connectivity to a variety of mobile devices from anywhere at any time. Meeting Maker Mobile Powered by Intellisync can be used as an add-on module for the popular Meeting Maker Millennium personal and group scheduling solution or as a standalone wireless email and PIM solution.

According to Nathaniel Palmer, chief analyst, Delphi Group, "mobile computing continues its surge as one of the hottest IT trends, fueled by the mix of an increasingly mobile workforce, ever-growing capabilities of handheld devices, and the emerging reality of wireless broadband. These trends only hasten the need for untethered calendaring and collaboration, as more and more knowledge workers find themselves having to participate in business processes while on the road."

Meeting Maker Mobile Powered by Intellisync increases productivity and provides a competitive edge by enabling users to stay connected to critical business applications from any location. Users can access and update their Meeting Maker Millennium calendar and email from Pocket PCs, SmartPhones, Palm OS, and Symbian mobile devices using wireless, Wi-Fi or cradle synchronization options. Users accessing email from POP3, IMAP, Domino or Exchange 2000/2003 environments can receive, review, create, reply and delete messages directly from their devices, while Millennium users can receive automatic calendar updates, create new activities, view meeting details, set event reminders, and view, edit or add new to-dos, notes and contacts.

"With many of our staff working remotely, wireless connectivity is crucial," said David Barnett of the Santa Cruz Office of Education. "Meeting Maker Mobile Powered by Intellisync has streamlined our scheduling processes by enabling our administrators to view the availability of our remote staff before scheduling new meetings with them. These remote users are then notified directly on their devices of these new meetings, eliminating the need for endless phone calls, voicemails and emails."

"Mobile collaboration is a cornerstone to the Intellisync strategy and contributes to our efforts to be the number one platform-independent wireless messaging company in the world," said Eric Monderer, vice president of technology licensing at Intellisync. "We're committed to partnering with other industry leaders to deliver some of today's most advance computing solutions. The commitment Meeting Maker, Inc. brings to developing advanced calendaring solutions is a great fit with our industry-leading wireless software. Through this partnership, Intellisync and Meeting Maker intend to enable the mobile workforce in new ways, and we believe our mutual customers will reap the benefits through integrated and innovative wireless calendaring and email capabilities."

"Our long-standing partnership with Intellisync has yet again enabled us to provide innovative mobile device connectivity for the ever-expanding mobile computing marketplace," said John T. Anderson, president and CEO of Meeting Maker, Inc. "With 1.5 billion cell phone users worldwide, Meeting Maker Mobile Powered by Intellisync's wireless calendar and email connectivity ensures that users will have immediate access to their calendars and email, two critical components essential to managing daily activities."

Intellisync Corporation is a leading developer and marketer of wireless email and mobile software solutions for the global mobile communications market. The partnership between Intellisync and Meeting Maker, Inc. first began with the development of Intellisync for Meeting Maker, a module for Meeting Maker Millennium that provides cradle synch capabilities between several wireless devices and the Meeting Maker Millennium calendar.
