BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ:BBRY) revealed on Tuesday that its multi-operating-system (multi-OS) enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution, BES12, had been selected by In Practice Systems Ltd. (INPS) for the upgraded management of its multi-platform IT offering, Vision, believing that the solution will significantly increase workforce productivity.

Why BES12

Angelo Chrysanthou, INPS Information Systems Head, emphasized that BES12 has been chosen by the company for its multi-platform solution because it is by far the most comprehensive and most cost-efficient solution of its kind available in the market today. Accordingly, BES12 is the perfect fit as it meets the security and productivity standards of Vision.

Currently, INPS offers Vision to the National Health Service (NHS) of UK, aiming to come up with high-quality integrated services anytime, anywhere, on any platform. The company is tasked to ensure the secure facilitation and monitoring of all data, meeting all the requirements under the Information Governance Statement of Compliance (IGSoC) legislation.

With BES12, users can access centralized device management from a single command center. It has a flexible support for different platforms and operating systems (OS) such as Android, iOS, OS X, Windows, and BlackBerry, making it strongly ideal for Vision. As Chrysanthou explained, the multi-OS EMM solution should be able to accommodate all possible device choices of the employees.

Florian Bienvenu, BlackBerry Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Senior Vice President (SVP) of Enterprise Sales, took pride that INPS has made the right decision to choose BES12 and to team up with BlackBerry, guaranteeing that it will meet— or even possibly supersede— its long-term expectations.

Blackberry, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Microsoft Azure Integration

Last month, Blackberry has confirmed that more EMM solutions will already be employing Microsoft Azure integration. As a result, the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform can now be installed through the cloud platform.

Steve Guggenheimer, Microsoft Chief Evangelist, said that the move underscores the software giant’s commitment to improving the enterprise ecosystem and providing optimized solutions for all of its clients around the world.

BES12, which has a Good Dynamics integration, was one of the first EMM solutions of BlackBerry to be deployed through Microsoft Azure, dating back in March.
