"BlackBerry has become a vital productivity solution for many GroupWise users,"
Novell and Research In Motion (RIM) are working together to further enhance communications for mobile corporate users by bringing Novell® GroupWise® Messenger to BlackBerry®. Together, GroupWise Messenger instant messaging (IM) and BlackBerry will give mobile users increased productivity while providing IT departments with a secure and manageable IM solution. As a result, GroupWise and BlackBerry users gain a new tool for rapid, secure communications.
"Organizations around the world use BlackBerry to remain securely connected to the communication and information that drives their day," said Mike Lazaridis, president and co-CEO, Research In Motion. "RIM is pleased to work with Novell to extend communications options for mobile GroupWise users."
Novell GroupWise Messenger, available as part of the Novell GroupWise 6.5 collaboration suite, is an enterprise-strength, cross-platform instant messaging solution. By giving GroupWise Messenger users the ability to receive and send messages via BlackBerry, Novell and RIM will extend the reach of GroupWise. The collaborative solution will run on Linux*, Windows* or Novell NetWare®.
