Consulting and Technical Support for BlackBerry Environments
BlackBerry mobile PDAs were once one of the most successful products for achieving mobile access to email, scheduling, web programs, and other critical business information. Progent can provide Cleveland, Ohio businesses the expertise of BlackBerry-premier experts who can help organizations to maintain existing BlackBerry deployments or migrate smoothly to a modern mobile platform.
As the complexity of small business IT technology has increased, and as the demand for world-class security, reliability, and disaster recovery has become the standard for companies regardless of size, effective deployment and maintenance of RIM BlackBerry technology has become more challenging.
