Back in March of this year Microsoft and RIM announced a joint venture to integrate Microsoft products with BlackBerry mobile devices. We now find ourselves in the fall of 2011 and the fruits of their labour are being realized with the new SharePoint integration for BlackBerry mobiles. This is very exciting news if you use, or are familiar with, Microsoft SharePoint.
The new SharePoint integration with your BlackBerry will allow users to:
– Download, edit, upload and sync documents,
– Navigate SharePoint files and folders
– View details of a document
– Integrate with the SharePoint calendar
– Utilize high-level BlackBerry security features
Here is a sample image of the interface, borrowed from the crackberry.com website article:
At Sea to Sky we feel that this is great news because it reinforces the fact that RIM and Microsoft are still putting business needs first.
If you have questions about this product, please contact a Sea to Sky representative for more information.
