simple to install, and offers wireless capabilities on-par with large enterprise solutions” says Lee Bonnell, Product Manager, Small & Medium Business Solutions Group at RIM.
BlackBerry Professional Software is based on the core functionality and advanced security of the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server software used by governments and large organizations worldwide, in a streamlined package, tailored to meet the needs of organizations with up to 30 wireless users.
"It has become increasingly important for smaller companies to be able to easily and cost-effectively deploy and manage mobile technology solutions in order to remain competitive and responsive to customers,” says to Carrie MacGillivray, Senior Analyst, SMB Markets: Mobility at IDC, a leading research firm in the IT industry.
More affordable wireless mobility solutions mean small companies can extend the benefits of wireless connectivity to areas such as sales, service, management, manufacturing operations, and IT, where substantial gains in productivity can create a competitive advantage.
A recent Ipsos-Reid survey reported the average BlackBerry solution end user saves an estimated 43 minutes of personal time per day, and converts 60 minutes of downtime into productive time per day. That translates to an extra 250 hours of productivity per year.
As Bonnell points out, “These immediate productivity gains can help the time-strapped small business stay competitive and successfully manage growth. BlackBerry Professional Software offers an affordable, hassle-free way for small businesses to achieve the proven ROI benefits of the BlackBerry solution,” says Bonnell, and explains, “BlackBerry Professional Software installs on an existing email server, eliminating the cost and hassle of purchasing and managing additional servers.”
And Bonnell promises more to come, saying, “BlackBerry Professional Software is just the first in a growing number of BlackBerry products and enhancements that bring the benefits of wireless mobility to smaller companies.”
