Ushering in a big change in work culture, BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) have announced it would soon unveil new smartphones with a mobile software that allows access to business data for users ‘anytime, anywhere’.
The Canadian leader in mobile connectivity said it has joined hands with German software giant SAP to install a mobile version of SAP's business management software in its devices that will available in the market soon.
Though this software, known as customer relationship management (CRM) software, is already installed in the Blackberry and is used through a browser, its mobile version will put all information directly on the device.
Thus mobile users will soon be able to work freely on SAP, no longer tied to their desktops or offices to perform their jobs, a RIM press statement said. With the installation of SAP's mobile software, sales data, purchase orders, contact information and customer records will become available on the BlackBerry.
The device will also be GPS-enabled and capable of storing hours of video data which could be used for training the sales people while they are traveling.
“Just as the BlackBerry wireless platform has transformed the way people use e-mail, SAP and RIM will bring the power and productivity of SAP enterprise applications to the BlackBerry platform in a similarly robust and user-friendly manner,” the statement said.
