Soprano Launches SOPRANO Outlook Mobile Service

Soprano Design, the leaders in Enterprise Messaging Solutions, today announced the launch of the SOPRANO Outlook Mobile Service (OMS). SOPRANO OMS enables businesses to send and receive SMS and MMS messages in Microsoft Outlook 2007 in minutes without having to install any software or hardware.

Outlook Mobile Service is a new feature in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 that allows users to create and send SMS and MMS messages to a mobile device from within Outlook in a manner similar to email messages. By leveraging these new features in Outlook 2007 SOPRANO OMS is able to rapidly enable SMS and MMS messaging capability for one to tens of thousands of Outlook 2007 users in a matter of moments.

Soprano is the first mobile service provider in Australia to offer both SMS and MMS functionality on Microsoft’s Outlook Mobile Service.

SOPRANO OMS simplifies business communication processes by consolidating SMS, MMS and email communications into a single centralised location within Outlook 2007. Benefits for businesses include a reduction in contact duplications by using a common Outlook address book, integration with Outlook calendar for mobile calendar reminders and alerts and the ability to receive notifications of priority emails via SMS.

By using SOPRANO OMS, users can send a message as an email message and as a mobile message to multiple contacts at the same time. Users can stay informed when they are away from the office because SOPRANO OMS can forward the email messages and calendar appointments that they choose directly to their mobile.

“With more mobile phones then TVs, computers or landline connections in Australia, SMS has rapidly become a necessary part of business day to day communications. It has become essential for businesses to integrate SMS and MMS messaging capabilities into their communications processes to stay in touch with today’s mobile society and workforce. SOPRANO’s Outlook Mobile Service makes mobile messaging from the desktop accessible for everyone.” said Peter Cleary, Product Manager, Soprano Design.

SOPRANO Outlook Mobile Service is now available world-wide.
