Consulting and Technical Support for BlackBerry Technology
BlackBerry wireless smartphones were at one time among the most popular products for maintaining anytime-anywhere connectivity to messaging, scheduling, web-based programs, and other critical business data. Progent can provide Norfolk, Virginia businesses the expertise of BlackBerry-certified professionals who can help companies to manage existing BlackBerry environments or migrate efficiently to a modern mobile solution.
As the complexity of small business IT technology has increased, and as the demand for enterprise-class security, reliability, and disaster recovery has grown to be the standard for companies of any size, successful deployment and support of BlackBerry technology has become increasingly challenging. To deal with areas like data protection, disaster recovery, and synchronization of BlackBerry smartphones with diverse messaging systems and corporate databases, small organizations often resort to external consulting firms who offer expertise in RIM BlackBerry installation and maintenance.
Progent offers the services of BlackBerry-qualified consultants who can help small businesses to design, administer, and troubleshoot BlackBerry-based solutions economically and effectively, doing away with the requirement for an internal BlackBerry technology specialist and lowering the cost and hassle of supporting wireless work groups.
