Blackberry says it's well positioned in India with enterprise solutions


Canadian handset maker BlackBerry believes it is “well positioned” for the multi-billion dollar Indian enterprise market armed with smartphones across multiple price points and end-to-end mobility solutions.

“Today, BlackBerry offers an unparalleled global infrastructure, a combination of assets that deliver security at every level and across multiple platforms and an array of value-added services like BBM. We see great opportunities ahead of us, and BlackBerry has an aggressive plan to continue to lead the enterprise mobility market,” BlackBerry Executive Chairman and CEO John Chen told PTI.

The Waterloo-headquartered firm is the clear leader in this market, with the most secure devices, software, servers and network, he added.

On the Indian market, Mr. Chen said: “We are also well positioned to provide our enterprise customers with the best, most secure end-to-end enterprise mobility solutions."

Mr. Chen said BlackBerry is aggressively targeting enterprise customers in India.

“In India specifically, we are aggressively targeting large, mid-level and small businesses alike. Late last year, we announced the opening of BlackBerry Enterprise Solutions (BES) Centres in Mumbai and Gurgaon as part of our focus on the enterprise mobility market,” he added.

These centres will cater to the needs of the enterprise customers and provide them with a walk-in experience of BlackBerry’s robust enterprise mobility management solutions, including BES10, Mr. Chen said.

“BlackBerry has a strong base in India, and we are continuing to build share in this priority market by listening to our customers and delivering the devices and mobile solutions they want.”

For the quarter ended August 30, 2014, BlackBerry posted revenue of $916 million with about 46 per cent coming from the hardware business, 46 per cent from services and 8 per cent from software and other revenue.
