The new platform is designed to bring mobile email, calendar, contacts, tasks and other services to consumers, small, medium businesses and busy professionals throughout Egypt.

“…We are able to address the connectivity needs of the broader market by offering a service that is both easy to use and widely available - key factors in the mass adoption of mobile email”, said Khaled ElKhouly, Enterprise Director of Vodafone Egypt. “The Visto Mobile Platform enables us to expand our mobile services portfolio with new services that streamline productivity, improve communications and, because users can access both corporate and personal email, strike that important balance between work and home.”

Vodafone Egypt customers can tailor their own mobile email service depending on their individual requirements, organisation size and their specific email accounts. Vodafone Business Email is available for both corporate and personal email accounts based on Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino and leading Internet-based email offerings.
