Consulting Support Services for BlackBerry Environments
BlackBerry mobile PDAs were at one time among the most successful products for achieving location-independent access to email, calendars, web-based programs, and other vital business data. Progent offers Napa, California companies support from BlackBerry-certified experts who can assist companies to maintain existing BlackBerry deployments or transition efficiently to a more popular smartphone platform.
As the sophistication of small company networks has expanded, and as the demand for world-class security, reliability, and disaster recovery has grown to be the norm for organizations regardless of size, effective integration and support of RIM BlackBerry technology has grown increasingly difficult. To address areas such as data protection, business continuity, and synchronization of BlackBerry smartphones with diverse email systems and corporate databases, small organizations often resort to outside support firms who specialize in RIM BlackBerry integration and troubleshooting.
Progent can provide the services of BlackBerry-certified engineers who can help small organizations to design, administer, and repair BlackBerry environments economically and efficiently, doing away with the need for an in-house BlackBerry solutions expert and lowering the expense and hassle of maintaining wireless work groups. Progent's BlackBerry specialists have extensive backgrounds working with Progent's Microsoft-certified experts, Cisco CCIE-certified network engineers, and CISM and CISA-certified network security specialists. This breadth of knowledge, coupled with Progent's proven remote support capabilities, provides small businesses an economical solution for incorporating BlackBerry products seamlessly into their IT network.
Progent's experts can help your business with SQL Server 2016 integration and development support, Microsoft SQL 2014 deployment and Exchange Server 2016 setup so that your database and email infrastructure operate optimally with BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Progent can also show you how to migrate from older editions of BlackBerry and Microsoft technology, set up streamlined management tools to enable you to track and support BlackBerry smartphones throughout your business, define security policies that make sense for your business, customize wireless applications, and ensure that your network infrastructure is appropriately configured to handle your BlackBerry clients. Also, Progent's business continuity consultants can help make sure that your BlackBerry data is incorporated in your scheduled backup processes in order that it can be restored quickly and safely.
