Chapter 14. Getting Work Done with Your Xoom

Your Xoom may not wear a pinstriped suit and a rep tie, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a good corporate citizen. In fact, it can easily hook into enterprise-wide resources like your corporate email account and calendar.

A big reason is your Xoom’s ability to work with Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync servers. These systems are the backbone of many corporations, and they can automatically and wirelessly keep tablets and smartphones updated with email, calendar information, and contacts. So when you’re hundreds or thousands of miles away from the office, you can still be in touch as if you were there in person.

Setting Up Your Xoom with Your Company Account

First, let the IT department know that you’d like to use your Xoom to work with the company’s network and computers. They can set up the network to let your Xoom connect. Then all you have to do is add the company account to your Xoom, which works much the same way as adding a new email account.

To get started, tap Settings in the App Menu, or else from the Home screen, tap the Notifications panel, then tap it again to expand it, and then tap Settings. Tap Accounts & Sync; at the top of the Accounts & Sync screen, tap “Add account,” and then tap Corporate from the screen that appears.
