Introducing the free BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express

Does the New BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express Change Everything?

If price has been a barrier to giving more employees mobile access to your organization's critical applications, email, calendar, and contacts, then we've got exciting news you will want to hear.

Research In Motion (RIM) has just launched BlackBerry® Enterprise Server Express, a FREE download that lets you connect employees' BlackBerry® smartphones to work applications, email, calendar, contact list, notes, memos, and more without software and licensing costs. Get your first look at the key features and benefits, how it works, and the opportunities for businesses large and small to collaborate like never before.

What is BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express?

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a FREE download that exists to make the BlackBerry solution accessible to all, within any sized organization. It provides the core collaboration, mobility, security, and manageability features of the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, but without the licensing and software costs. And not just through email, but with full wireless sync, remote file access, applications, and more.

  • It is perfect for small- and medium-sized businesses who until now could not justify connecting employees' BlackBerry smartphones to the company's critical business applications
  • Large organizations will also benefit, as they now have an easy, low-cost, secure way to connect employee-owned BlackBerry smartphones to the company IT infrastructure
  • All organizations will no longer need to compromise on security, manageability, and price

Connect mobile employees to your business's apps

This is big news for employees who want mobile access to their work email, calendar, contacts, files, and company apps. Now they can access those important tools from virtually any location. That means higher productivity, greater teamwork, and happier customers. Here are a few ways employees can collaborate:
