Unlike other Exchange and Notes sync solutions, iMobile Suite allows system administrators to set default configurations for synchronization behavior and maintain very granular control over how users can change these defaults for their sessions. Additional administrative capabilities include extensive logging and troubleshooting tools, and powerful installation and configuration wizards.
