Is Blackberry Looking East

BlackBerry have announced that one of India's leading full service law firms,  Bharucha & Partners, has upgraded its mobile fleet to BlackBerry® 10 smart-phones and Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) platform to BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10 (BES10), to manage its mobile infrastructure and protect corporate data.

It is a known fact the BlackBerry revolutionised the mobile industry when it was introduced in 1999. It was the must have tool for up and coming C level executives. Today, BlackBerry aims to inspire the success of our millions of customers around the world by continuously pushing the boundaries of mobile experiences. Founded in 1984 and based in Waterloo, Ontario. BlackBerry although a little tarnished by its unintended use by rioters in London still operates offices in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America

Bharucha & Partners, presently has three offices in Mumbai and Delhi. With over 60 lawyers, the firm offers expertise in different fields of legal practice with corporate mergers and acquisitions, banking and finance, litigation, arbitration, capital markets and financial regulation being its core areas. 

 All lawyers and paralegals as well as senior members of the administrative staff have moved to BlackBerry 10 smartphones, primarily BlackBerry Q5 and BlackBerry Z30 smartphones. As per the company policy, emails are only allowed on BlackBerry smartphones managed by BES 10. With BlackBerry Balance technology, users can access their professional and personal information separately without compromising security. The partition allows the professional part to be controlled and managed by the company's IT department, while the personal section is open for employees as per BYOD norms.

Justin Bharucha, Founding Partner of Bharucha & Partners  said “In today's dynamic work environment, our lawyers require a real-time, secure, and flexible mobility solution. BES 10 in combination with BlackBerry 10 smartphones provides an excellent solution for environments like law firms. With BES 10, we are able to manage and service all of our devices across platforms with a simple unified console while BlackBerry 10 smartphones provide a great user experience and help reduce overhead costs.”

He continued  “The BlackBerry Balance technology enables easy segregation of work and personal activities. Users can work and share information securely while retaining access to enjoy personal apps, social networks, and a rich consumer experience on their BlackBerry 10 smartphones without compromising security.”

Sunil Lalvani, Managing Director for India at BlackBerry commented  “At BlackBerry, we strive to provide our customers with a robust mobility platform to support their complex enterprise requirements. The BlackBerry 10 smartphones with their superior hardware built, advanced communications and multimedia features, as well as an extended battery life, provide the best mobility solution for lawyers on the go. BlackBerry remains the most trusted enterprise mobility solution, offering customers a reliable, secure and cost-effective solution for multi-OS mobility management” .

The rising number of organisations embracing BlackBerry Enterprise Services in India as part of their mobile strategy, could mean a recovery in the emerging markets of Asia .
