Consulting Support for BlackBerry Technology
BlackBerry ConsultantsBlackBerry wireless smartphones were once among the most successful products for achieving mobile access to email, calendars, web-based programs, and other vital business data. Progent can provide Skokie, Illinois businesses the services of BlackBerry-premier experts who can help organizations to manage their BlackBerry environments or migrate smoothly to a modern mobile platform.

As the sophistication of small business IT technology has expanded, and as the demand for world-class protection, dependability, and recoverability has become the standard for businesses regardless of size, successful deployment and support of RIM BlackBerry solutions has grown more challenging. To address issues such as security, disaster recovery, and synchronization of BlackBerry PDAs with a variety of email servers and corporate databases, small organizations often resort to outside consulting firms who offer expertise in RIM BlackBerry integration and maintenance.

Progent can provide the services of BlackBerry-certified consultants who can help small businesses to design, manage, and repair BlackBerry-based environments economically and efficiently, doing away with the necessity for an internal BlackBerry technology expert and reducing the cost and hassle of maintaining mobile work groups. Progent's BlackBerry technology engineers have extensive backgrounds working with Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants, Cisco CCIE network engineers, and CISSP and GIAC-certified network security professionals. This range of experience, combined with Progent's proven online service delivery capabilities, provides small businesses a budget-friendly alternative for incorporating RIM BlackBerry technology seamlessly into their information network.

Progent's engineers can assist your company with SQL Server 2016 integration and development consulting, Microsoft SQL Server 2014 configuration and Exchange Server 2016 setup so that your database and email infrastructure operate efficiently with BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Progent can also show you how to upgrade from older editions of BlackBerry and Microsoft technology, configure easy-to-use administration utilities to enable you to monitor and support BlackBerry smartphones across your business, define security policies that are right for your company, customize wireless applications, and ensure that your network infrastructure is appropriately designed to accommodate your BlackBerry clients.
