RIM Introduces Cloud Service for Small Business

Research In Motion (RIM) has unveiled a free online service for small businesses to centrally manage company- or employee-owned BlackBerry smartphones in the cloud.
The new service-BlackBerry Management Center- also can protect business-related content stored on the handsets.

We are pleased to introduce RIM’s latest cloud service designed specifically for small businesses,” said Alan Panezic, vice president, Enterprise Product Management at Research In Motion. “BlackBerry Management Center is a free service and an effective way to centrally manage and support employees’ BlackBerry smartphones in the cloud.”

Research In Motion (RIM) specializes in wireless innovation and has revolutionized the mobile industry with the introduction of the BlackBerry solution.
RIM has designed BlackBerry Management Center for businesses with up to 100 BlackBerry smartphones that access email services from an Internet service provider (ISP) or web-based email services like Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo!.

In addition to simplifying the management of company or employee-owned smartphones in the cloud, the new BlackBerry Management Center helps to minimize risk from lost or stolen handsets.
The service allows small businesses to wirelessly back up BlackBerry smartphones automatically on a daily, weekly or monthly basis to aid in the recovery of lost business-related content stored on the handset.

BlackBerry Management Center, says RIM has been designed to protect content on an employee’s lost or stolen BlackBerry smartphone. If a mobile device is lost, this service remotely locks it and wipes the contents if required.
Companies or users can also leverage this service to locate a lost BlackBerry smartphone. The service first remotely locks a device, initiates a loud ring, and then displays a message on the Home screen.

BlackBerry Management Center can also restore the settings and content on a new or replacement device as well as reset a password for smartphone users.
