When it comes to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 there has been a steady stream of announcements detailing companies whom have already rolled support the services as their enterprise mobility management solution. Canadian Tire Corporation, ING DIRECT, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Ricoh Canada and Torys LLP are already up and running and the momentum is continuing within North America. 

“We are placing BlackBerry 10 orders with our North American carriers,” said Claudette McGowan, Vice President, Digital Workspace Services, BMO Financial Group.  “BlackBerry remains our enterprise standard and we've begun deploying within our environment.”

“As a CIO, I know that when I give my employees a BlackBerry smartphone, everything is going to work with limited effort required by our IT administrators,” said Nigel Carpenter, Chief Information Officer, Canadian Diabetes Association. “For me, when it comes down to core business functionality, it’s a no brainer that BlackBerry is the only way to go.”

For many organizations, the move into the new offerings is simply the logical choice. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 offers mobile device management, mobile application management and secure mobile connectivity, and delivers a cost-efficient and reliable solution for business customers.

Awesome Awesome new once BMO picks up you can assume you got all Canadian Banks...after LA police department picks up you can assume a very decent deployment in law enforcement.

Any law enforcement agency that doesn't go with BlackBerry is just asking for trouble.

There was never a doubt at our agency at what our number one priority was for our devices. Security.

If The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is using the BES and want to continue with the BES10, I am saying, that is a BIG FISH. BlackBerry Keep Moving. Go get some more FISH. We love it.!!!!!!!!

I prefer Halibut in beer batter and Potato wedge, with malt vinegar and Heinz ketchup. Go and get them

Great to see major US police forces and municipalities deploying BES 10 because where NY and LA go many other US cities follow.

Great to see the big Canadian Banks are sticking with BlackBerry as well.

Can't imagine the Samsung ad mocking the BBRY now. Most specially the part if their S3 is secured. Oh yeah its secure powered by BES 10. The unicorn project raised by blackberries.
