KPMG has announced that they will be purchasing 3,500 BlackBerry 10 smartphones and switching up to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 10 and BlackBerry’s Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution. The 3,500 BlackBerry 10 smartphones will go out to their entire mobile fleet in Italy, where the upgrade will occur.
KPMG is one of the world’s largest professional services companies. They are also on of the Big Four auditors, alongside Deloitte, Ernst & Young and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
“Every day our professionals need to share confidential information and need a reliable smartphone with strong security, and the flexibility to meet different working needs,” said Davide Grassano, IT Lead Partner at KPMG Milan. “With BlackBerry 10 we have found the best solution in terms of usability, security, connectivity and price. The BlackBerry solution allows our users to have access to shared files and other internal resources, while also working to prevent the accidental leakage of business documents and attachments.”
With features like BlackBerry® Balance™ technology, which keeps corporate information separated and secure from personal content, customers can access the corporate resources they need, and effortlessly switch the profile on their BlackBerry 10 smartphone to enjoy the full consumer experience, including access to personal apps, multimedia, the Internet and public social networks. KPMG employees can also benefit from built-in productivity features such as Documents To Go™, which lets employees view and edit Microsoft® Word, Excel® and PowerPoint® documents on the go, or use their BlackBerry 10 smartphone’s HDMI connection to make presentations to clients.
