BoxTone(R), the expert in mobile user management, today introduced BoxTone Essentials for IT messaging and mobility admins looking to automate core BlackBerry smartphone monitoring and management activities, at prices starting under US$10,000.
Said Alan Snyder, BoxTone’s CEO, “BoxTone software has already established itself as the best-in-class standard for mobile user management. BoxTone Essentials brings our core monitoring and troubleshooting technology for BlackBerry to a broader segment of the market, especially those organizations with smaller smartphone deployments and modest budgets who want the significant benefits that BoxTone can provide.”

Today’s enterprise and governmental agency smartphone users are on the move and short on patience. BoxTone Essentials -- part of the BoxTone mobile user management suite -- automates core monitoring and management activities, proactively alerting IT to mobile service issues then helping them to find, fix and validate those issues quickly and easily.
BoxTone Essentials is designed for both advanced mobile administrators and those new to BlackBerry smartphone support. The SmartMP(TM)-powered software delivers end-to-end visibility to mobile user and platform health; proactively alerts to issues and risks, such as high rescan rates, hung threads, carrier outages, SRP outages or VIP low memory; provides simple resolution instructions in plain language (no hunting through logs or searching online forums); and includes 1-Click Fix-It for the most common service issues, such as reset password, send service books and wipe device.
BoxTone Essentials deploys fast to an organization’s data center, and within the first hour running can start to fix service issues. The software auto-discovers mobile users, wireless carriers, BlackBerry Enterprise Servers, Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Domino mail servers and infrastructure. It is also Web-based (so no fat client to deploy and administer) and is agent-less, meaning no risk, load or administrative burden over time.
Added Snyder, “Now with BoxTone Essentials, more messaging and mobility administrators will proactively know the answer and fix mobile service issues before CEOs like me call. The added benefit is that BoxTone will also reduce their costs of operation and provide a path for future growth.”
Intended for new customers only, BoxTone Essentials is available from BoxTone and the company’s authorized reseller partners globally in three pre-packaged bundles designed for the support of up to 500, 1,000 and 1,500 mobile users respectively. Prices start at US$8999. A BoxTone Essentials Quick Start package for installation and training is available for an additional US$1,000.
