Mitel® (NASDAQ:MITL), a leading provider of unified communications (UC) software solutions, today announced that it is now offering BlackBerry® smartphones as part of the Mitel Mobile service offered to U.S. based corporate customers through Mitel NetSolutions. Mitel will offer organizations the choice between the BlackBerry® Curve 8530 or BlackBerry® Bold 9650 smartphones, as well as offer BlackBerry® Enterprise Server licenses and access to Mitel unified communications applications for mobile users.
Announced in January, Mitel Mobile offers voice and high-speed data services to corporate customers. With the addition of BlackBerry smartphones on the Mitel Mobile service, companies are able to obtain business-class devices, service, and applications, all from a single provider. The BlackBerry smartphones are designed to work with the Mitel Mobile service and connect to and operate Mitel's suite of UC applications, including Mitel Unified Communicator® (UC) Advanced mobile client.
"The BlackBerry smartphone is a leading device choice for enterprises around the world. With this announcement, Mitel will enable a bundled device and service offering, allowing businesses to benefit from consolidation and simplicity at a number of levels," says Jon Brinton, president of Mitel NetSolutions. "By combining the BlackBerry Curve 8530 and BlackBerry Bold 9650 smartphones with BlackBerry Enterprise Server licenses, Mitel's network services and advanced UC applications, businesses of all sizes can take advantage of a wireless service focused on their unique needs while receiving industry leading customer support and enjoying a single source for all communication needs."
Business subscribers using Mitel Mobile receive the coverage and benefits comparable to major wireless network service providers, uniquely coupled with enterprise-wide bundling of wireline access and UC features, such as corporate contacts information and presence details, call history, and visual voicemail along with dynamic status control while mobile. In addition, the wireless plans are flexible such that wireless minutes can be pooled or shared for all employees across the organization. The Mitel Mobile service supports wireless handsets, smartphones and wireless data cards, as well as the provision for wireless backup of traditional wireline connectivity, providing for increased redundancy and business continuity.
"Since implementing Mitel Mobile, it's been notably easier for our employees to conduct business," said Christina Racine, director of information technology, Clearpoint Credit Counseling Solutions. "The service works seamlessly with the UC applications we've implemented, and it's one number to call to any employee independent of device or where they happen to be."
