BlackBerry Software Vendor News

BoxTone and Neverfail Team up for BlackBerryBoxTone and Neverfail Team up for BlackBerry

BoxTone, the most successful and powerful name in BES monitoring has teamed up with Neverfail... Neverfail is a world-class provider of disaster recovery services. Can you sense the powerful apps that could come out of this partnership in the future? Both vendors have amazing track records of success.

From the official press release:

“The combination of Neverfail and BoxTone truly is a natural fit,” said Nick Harmer, VP of Channel and Sales Development for Neverfail. “As adoption of the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution continues to grow globally, more and more enterprises recognize the importance of a mobility platform and are looking for continuous availability across the extended BlackBerry environment. Neverfail looks forward to working with BoxTone to deliver comprehensive availability protection and a proactive management, monitoring and support solution for BlackBerry deployments.”

As time goes on, we'll no doubt see some interesting software applications from this dynamic duo. I'll keep an eye on this partnership in the months and years to come!

BoxTone and Neverfail will both be present at WES, so we'll have to get Kevin to stop by for more juicy information direct from these world-class companies.

BlackBerry Software Roundup for May 2nd, 2008!

6 Comments

Awesome review as always. You mentioned Ziplorer is now 2.0 ...Do you know if that is a free update to those of us running 1.0?

MrPixar, excellent question.

Just checked in with our software folks, and they tell me that 2.0 is a $4.99 upgrade if you already own 1.0. Simply enter the email you used to purchase 1.0 on the product page, and the discount should be applied!

Posted this in the forums but wanted anyone here to know also.

I had Mundu on my treo and the wonderful people over there transferred my license for free. Just sent an email to support and voila!!

Actually if you still have your treo and it is functioning, there is a migrate option somewhere according to support. Mine is not functioning anymore so they emailed me a new code and I downloaded and now my MunduIM is registered forever according to the about screen.
