BlackBerry Limited Launches Enhanced SIM-Based Licensing Solution for China Mobile Hong Kong Enterprise Customers
Mar 27 15
BlackBerry Limited announced that China Mobile Hong Kong Co. Ltd. will offer Enhanced SIM-Based Licensing by BlackBerry to its enterprise customers. With the new ESBL offering, CMHK enterprise customers can get BES12, a cross-platform EMM solution by BlackBerry, integrated with their wireless monthly subscriber billing. The ESBL offering in conjunction with BES12 will support iOS, AndroidTM, Windows Phone and BlackBerry 10. The offering will enable CMHK to resell to its enterprise customers licenses for BlackBerry EMM services as a bundled offer along with airtime and a data plan. ESBL enables CMHK to offer enterprise customers granular monthly billing, and the ability to consolidate all users to one monthly billing date. This helps CMHK facilitate how customers pay for BlackBerry EMM services, which can quickly and easily be selected at the carrier point of sale. ESBL will also integrate with CMHK's existing carrier provisioning systems, helping to identify a customer's existing licensing status as well as upsell opportunities. The ESBL offering will provide enterprise customers an improved purchasing experience, meaning they can consolidate operational costs into one monthly invoice. The license migration process is eliminated, since ESBL licensing includes version upgrades and updates. Enterprises with BYOD policies will also have the opportunity to purchase Bring Your Own Licenses with ESBL.
