BlackBerry has introduced its software and services vision to infuse BlackBerry’s unmatched power of productivity, communication, collaboration and security across all smartphone and tablets running on various operating systems at the Mobile World Congress 2015.
The BlackBerry Experience Suite is an initiative from Blackberry to create a robust software portfolio. This will be an extension to BlackBerry’s successful cross-platform strategy of complementing the company’s innovative and ultra-secure hardware with software solutions that meet the changing needs of enterprises and mobile professionals – as well as device makers serving those markets.
Talking about it, John Chen CEO and Executive Chairman BlackBerry, said, “BlackBerry’s core values of security and productivity are more in demand than ever – as we demonstrated with the successful expansion of BES12 and BBM to other platforms. Flexibility without compromise is what current and former BlackBerry users tell us time and again they want from their mobile device. They want BlackBerry’s legendary security and core productivity and collaboration capabilities while still being able to choose a device that matches their lifestyle and personality.”
The BlackBerry Exprince Suite comprises of three types of services the BlackBerry Productivity Suite, BlackBerry Communication & Collaboration Suite and the BlackBerry Security Suite. The BlackBerry Productivity Suite helps in managing work and personal messages, and edit documents across all devices. It also allows tackling the highest priority communications first, including high-priority messages, documents and contacts, across devices and cloud sources and also manages personal and work messages in one place.
The BlackBerry Communication & Collaboration Suite shares and collaborates in real-time with colleagues through instant meetings and view and edit documents and calendar invitations across devices seamlessly and securely. Lastly, the BlackBerry Security Suite will allow the users to protect personal and work information from malware and data theft with BlackBerry’s secure encryption and privacy controls. It also integrates and securely manage work and personal messages through separate containers.
The company will be offering the BlackBerry Experience Suite in second half of the year.
