The article presents information on the release of the ActivePower software, which is said to the first office at the end of a mobile phone, from ActivePower Business Systems. This is a browser-based application that allows intelligent, collaborative communication between mobile workers, their customers, managers, and central office in real time, with instantaneous sales management reporting and customer interaction. Once the product is installed on the server, it runs across any communication device, so all that is required to access the organization's database while on the move is a laptop, a general packet radio service enabled mobile phone, a pocket personal computer or a personal digital assistant Web browser. The product is fully customisable and can be adapted to suit an organisation's special requirements in terms of project terminology and operation. The Time Management module and the Language Editor allow the user to adjust to local settings and therefore work in any time zone and virtually any language. An additional feature is ActiveTalk, a secure tool for one-to-one, one-to-many or many-to-many conversations from any location.
