Tailor BlackBerry Tech Support to Fit Your Needs

Now there’s a solution for every size business

Research In Motion’s recently revamped technical support system provides brand new opportunities for businesses of all sizes to pick exactly the level of service that they need. With new options for customization and new service solutions for small and medium businesses, every company can find peace of mind about their BlackBerry solution.

The new BlackBerry technical support is divided into six tiers, with optional extra components— such as the ability to have a BlackBerry technician onsite—available. Every tier except for the most basic includes free software updates for your BlackBerry Enterprise or Professional Solution. By selecting the tier that’s right for you, you can be sure that you’re paying only for what you need, maximizing ROI and minimizing downtime. In this article, we’ll provide a brief rundown of the features and customization options available in each service tier.
