BlackBerry has added another name to their successful BlackBerry EZ Pass migration program. This time around, Monomeros Colombo Venezolanos S.A., a leading supplier of basic and intermediate chemicals for the agricultural and industrial sectors in Colombia, opted to migrate from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5 to BES10 to manage its fleet of BlackBerry 10 devices.

"BlackBerry has always been synonymous with security and productivity. Choosing BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 as our mobile communications platform was necessary to answer the growing demands of our business. Our company demands a secure and reliable platform which allows us to access information from virtually anywhere, as well as to answer any requirements in real time from our stakeholders", said Jaime Andres Vera, Automation, Computing and Telecommunications Manager at Grupo Monomeros Colombo Venezolanos. "In addition, BES10 assures that our information is being transmitted in a secure way, and that our mobile workforce is more efficient by using a BlackBerry 10 device that balances personal and corporate use," added Vera.

The momentum for BlackBerry in this area isn't slowing down and with each and every press release issued, it shows the reach of BlackBerry in Enterprise is still the brand globally recognized and synonymous with security and there's no way BlackBerry is going to let that go. You can read on through for the full press release.

Press Release

Monomeros Colombo Venezolanos S.A. upgrades to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10

Barranquilla, Colombia – BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ: BBRY; TSX:BB), a world leader in mobile communications, today announced that Grupo Monomeros Colombo Venezolanos S.A., a leading supplier of basic and intermediate chemicals for the agricultural and industrial sectors in Colombia, has upgraded its mobility platform to BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10 (BES10).

Monomeros Colombo Venezolanos was previously using BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5, but opted to migrate to BES10 to manage its fleet of BlackBerry 10 devices. The company chose BlackBerry's enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution as it enabled deployment of key applications quickly, improved business processes and increased employee productivity across its various sectors and departments.

"BlackBerry has always been synonymous with security and productivity. Choosing BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 as our mobile communications platform was necessary to answer the growing demands of our business. Our company demands a secure and reliable platform which allows us to access information from virtually anywhere, as well as to answer any requirements in real time from our stakeholders", said Jaime Andres Vera, Automation, Computing and Telecommunications Manager at Grupo Monomeros Colombo Venezolanos. "In addition, BES10 assures that our information is being transmitted in a secure way, and that our mobile workforce is more efficient by using a BlackBerry 10 device that balances personal and corporate use," added Vera.

"One of the most useful features about BES10 is the immediacy and security it provides when accessing corporate data from our mobile devices. BlackBerry Work Drives also allows us to map network drives in corporate file servers in order to share business information, just as if we were using the computer at our desks and without the need to use a VPN, providing unparalleled security to enterprise data. That helps us increase productivity and efficiency across all our sectors," concluded Vera.

"BlackBerry is pleased that Monomeros Colombo Venezolanos S.A., one of the most renowned Latin American companies in the industry, has chosen BES10 to manage its mobile fleet based on the productivity gains offered by our solution," noted Nuncio Di Mare, Enterprise Sales Manager for the Andean and Caribbean Region at BlackBerry. "BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is the only enterprise mobility solution that manages Android, iOS and BlackBerry operating systems from a unified console that allows for a more efficient and productive use of time," he concluded.

BlackBerry EZ Pass Migration Program Gains Momentum

Customers are realizing the benefits and cost savings of the recently launched BlackBerry program, which provides free license migration and support for BlackBerry customers to move from BES5 and other MDM platforms to BES10.

Since the program launched on March 31, 2014, more than 1.2 million BES10 client access licenses have been issued to customers worldwide. The enterprises participating in the program represent a cross-section of industries from financial services and healthcare, to telecommunications and government organizations. Migrations to BES10 include customers using other MDM vendors such as AirWatch, MobileIron and Good Technology.

The BlackBerry EZ Pass migration program is designed to help customers take full advantage of the BES10 multi-platform solution by seamlessly migrating from BES5 and includes access to BlackBerry's technical support services.

Yeah but mr. Kessler said it made BlackBerry look desperste....That guy knows what brands to stand behind....cough cough *palm* cough cough.

Yep agreed......Derek is a blatant BlackBerry hater...Im kinda disappointed he gets to act that away along with Phil from Android Central.....What I love about Mobile Nations is everyone gets along so well being respectful, and I feel Derek and Phil are really acting immature and embarrassing Mobile Nations and basically what it stands for....my two cents.

I would love to see some adoption also in the USA now.... let's hope that BlackBerry will get back a big name also here!

Keep em' rolling! BES 10/12 can always be brought in to replace the other crap companies may have originally compromised with in order to provide larger touch screen hardware to their employees. Now they can keep that hardware and upgrade their MDM service to BES 10/12. Then gradually migrate their hardware back to BlackBerry! Sell like Hell!

From my Neutrino Powered Z10

That's part of the problem, companies need to bring BES 10 in and use hardware when everyone else is going cloud or have had cloud services available for years. They need a cloud option ASAP!

Nope, they're giving away BES licenses for free until next year, that's why all these licenses are being "switched over". It doesn't mean companies are using the licenses, but who wouldn't take free stuff. BES 12 is supposed to have a cloud option within 6 months after launch.

So you initially asked if it was available.. then changed your post to say it works great? Good news either way. A market preview (beta) sounds risky but I'll have to look into it.

This is great news. BlackBerry is making huge progress, from being so scrutinized to once again rising.

Screw the US, the world is much more than just the us, let them have their crapple and hemdroids ....go BlackBerry go!!

Even though it's true BlackBerry can do just fine without the U.S, as a Canadian, I really want BlackBerry to succeed there.
May take some time, but I want our friends to the south to have the best options as we have had for years from them.
It can be done. Actually, it will be done.

One centimetre at a time...slowly but surely...this is all coming together. I must hand it to Chen, BES is really taking off and getting noticed under him.

Are all of their world cup players still intact?

Sorry if that sounds macabre, it's a sport. No one should die for losing.

Zzzzwiped from a Zedevice....

I agree with others. For now, BlackBerry is a lost cause here in the States. Eventually, it will turn around. I live here and have just gone from a Ye Ole Classic 9930 to a new Z10. The difference is amazing! I'm new to the BlackBerry experience. I always wanted one and didn't really care what anyone else thought. The Bold was to get my feet wet. It also got me hooked. The ability to increase productivity with Z10 is a game changer. I can do basic presentations, see what's going on in the hub and have secure messaging. Any way, I'm happy for the company. I really hope its diversification pays off. BlackBerry isn't for everyone, and that's the point.

So much winning! Go blackberry!! :)
Become profitable again!

Because choosing another mobile computing vendor, that is not BlackBerry, is extremely bad business. So, makes sense they deployed the only viable solution for their enterprise. Smart people work there.

Posted via CB10

And I believe all these customers are going to get a free upgrade to BES12 so they should be happy about that.

MobileIron is a joke. Glad companies are finally realizing this.
BES12 will be a game changer. ;)

Posted on my Q5

2600 enterprises means 2600 companies i presume but is 1 license a single device or a single BES server?

It doesnt make sense to me because why would any enterprise have that many licenses unless they were talking about devices? 2600 companies using 1.2million licenses between them?

I believe a license is a single device or a one license equals a set of devices such as 100 devices per license for example. Not sure though.

BlackBerry starting to throw some up & in fastballs at the competition...a little "Chen Music".

If news of a Blackberry new deal come from companies located in Colombia we need a reality check. They are good news, but that Colombian company is not large enough to make an impact in the bottom line.

Screw the people who say screw the US.

I agree that the world, as a whole, should be the major focus for BlackBerry, but to say that the US market should forgotten about altogether is ridiculous. Borderline offensive, even.

I'm a die-hard BlackBerry linebacker, and do my part in the promotion and (mostly) defense of BlackBerry products here in the US. Direct your stupid comments at BlackBerry's marketing team.

The one thing that needed to be done the most to create a space for a comeback in this country has been done. Chen has shifted the focus of the company to enterprise once again - the sole reason these devices and (RIM ) BlackBerry gained such secure ground to stand on in the first place.

To ditch, entirely, such a potentially huge market would be a mistake.

As a community, BlackBerry users have traditionally been rock solid in their support of each other on a global scale. Don't come into this community making immature comments that could potentially begin to degrade our solidarity.

Win the gd market back, is what I say!
