• Easy Setup: End-to-end self provisioning with pre-installed clients, enabling mobile email users to set up their service from their device in a matter of seconds and “Walk Out Working” (WOW).
• iPortal: A new presence enabled, web-based repository of contacts and calendar entries that can be accessed from anywhere at anytime and used for backup and restore.
• iDAC: A desktop-based software that allows complete synchronization of MS Outlook/Outlook Express calendar and contacts between a desktop PC,the iPortal, and the user’s mobile device

Moving Beyond Email
As advanced mobile devices continue to break down traditional barriers to mobile computing and communications,, users are expecting to use their mobile handset to access all modes of messaging including email, instant messaging, social networks, and blogs.
As this growth accelerates, offering multiple point applications and experiences for each communications type will become confusing, complex and expensive to use and support. Mobile users will demand a simple, easy to use, unified experience to establish instant interaction while on the go.
Visto enables mobile operators to address customer requirements while also establishing a new set of competitive advantages to be utilized in defense of an emerging dynamic of alternative ecosystems meant to own the user through the delivery of proprietary content and applications. Visto’s advanced architecture provides an extensible solution to accommodate the ever changing dynamics of communicating on the Internet. By mobilizing and centralizing Internet communications while combining the unique value within carrier networks, Visto ensures our mobile operator customers provide a layer of average revenue per user (ARPU) enhancing content that differentiates their user experience.
