Handset manufacturer Nokia and technology major IBM on Wednesday entered into a collaboration to provide mobile handsets a software solution which provides direct, secure access to e-mail besides personal information of the company.

The solution IBM Lotus Notes Traveler delivers direct, secure access to e-mail and personal information through IBM Domino servers, and is available for Nokia Symbian S60 smartphones, both the companies said in a joint statement here.

“IBM Lotus Notes Traveler gives business professionals easy, secure and real-time access to their e-mail boxes, corporate contacts and corporate calendar on their Nokia smartphones. Direct access mail also drastically reduces the cost of managing and maintaining servers,” Nokia India Director Operator V. Ramanath said.

Both the companies have also shared an update on the deployment of the IBM Lotus Notes Traveler for Nokia smartphones.

The solution has found large-scale deployment at leading Indian enterprises including Asian Paints, Max New York Life, Britannia, Subros, Amtek Auto and Havells.
