Wireless Achievement Award winners create apps that integrate BlackBerry smartphone and PlayBook functionality so users can multitask in new ways. These customers work with app development partners to mobilize corporate systems, increase performance, make a difference to the bottom line and simplify life for their employees. One finalist commented: "Without the BlackBerry Enterpriser Server we would not have been able to take our concept and make it into the quality application that it is today. Our highly secure BlackBerry solution helps our legal team provide better service to our clients, which is why we exist." – Matthew Williams, Outsource Application Manager, Eversheds LLP
The prizes are pretty awesome too. Not only do they get recognition for their efforts, but the prize packages include free BlackBerry smartphones and PlayBooks, free BlackBerry Training onsite at their location, BlackBerry Certification, and more. Winners will be announced at BlackBerry World on May 2nd.
