Consulting and Technical Support for BlackBerry Technology
BlackBerry wireless smartphones were at one time among the most successful products for maintaining location-independent access to messaging, calendars, web-based applications, and other vital business data. Progent offers Waltham, Massachusetts businesses the services of BlackBerry-premier experts who can assist companies to maintain their BlackBerry deployments or migrate smoothly to a current mobile solution.
