About the fusionOne Service
fusionOne employs a unique store-and-forward architecture that rapidly synchronises information across both compatible and traditionally incompatible systems. As information is entered or modified in one device, it is automatically forwarded to a neutral storage space on the Internet to be broadcast to the other devices the moment they connect to the Internet. Recognising that operating systems and applications vary across devices, fusionOne automatically adapts and instantly translates the information to the appropriate system. When a transaction is delivered to a device, the data is automatically converted into the suitable format for that machine. For example, information entered in Outlook on your office PC, is automatically synced with Netscape Communicator on your home PC. With fusionOne, your information is always available and always up-to-date, regardless of location.
