BoxTone, the expert in mobile user management, today announced that it has been added to Forrester Research's Hot Companies to Watch: Q4 Update because of its software for managing, monitoring and supporting the BlackBerry platform. In being named to this report, BoxTone joins a select group of interesting vendors leveraging new technology trends to bring a more flexible, custom IT experience to their end users.
According to Forrester, companies like BoxTone represent a new wave of innovation that is likely to affect many technology vendors in the coming years. To make the Hot Companies to Watch report, BoxTone fit three primary criteria that correspond to Forrester's Tech Horizons innovation research: 1) the company's products or services provide a technological advantage over existing solutions; 2) the products and services are easy to implement; and 3) there is a large potential market for the company's products and services.
"BoxTone is delighted to be named a Hot Company to Watch by Forrester Research," said Alan Snyder, CEO, BoxTone. "The analyst report notes that BoxTone software's real-time reporting capabilities, security features, and reporting tools help organizations be more efficient and effective with their mobility dollars. That potent combination enabled BoxTone to finish the most recent fiscal year on a double-digit growth trajectory. We are so confident that our product provides real value to customer that we guarantee the software and the experience."

The Forrester Hot Companies to Watch report says BoxTone "gets high marks from users for its easy-to-follow Web-based monitoring and management interface."
The report notes that "some 85% of North American enterprises and 70% of European ones now deploy or are in the process of deploying wireless email; further, 77% of North American enterprises and 65% of European enterprises manage and support the BlackBerry operating system."
The report continues: "As the use of wireless email spreads deeper and deeper into organizations, IT managers will face increased pressure to support more mobile users for more critical business-related activities, without increasing personnel costs. Solutions like BoxTone mitigate this pressure by bridging the gap between the wireless email provider and the management requirements of the IT organization."
