BlackBerry announced today that Picard, French retailer of specialized frozen food products, has migrated to the BB10 platform by deploying BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) and BlackBerry® 10 smartphones.  As noted in the press release below,

“Picard’s migration to BlackBerry’s latest Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution, along with its adoption of BlackBerry 10 smartphones, reaffirms its trust in BlackBerry’s secure end-to-end mobile solutions. Company employees have been given the choice between BlackBerry® Q10 devices, for those who want to combine the power of the BlackBerry® 10 platform with a large physical keyboard, and BlackBerry® Z10 smartphones, for those who prefer a larger screen.

After trialing a number of different service providers, Picard’s IT team selected the BlackBerry® solution to meet its enterprise needs. “As longstanding BlackBerry customers, we have consistently found that BlackBerry offers a good user experience as well as unmatched security on the market, especially when combined with the BlackBerry 10 platform. The fact that security is built-in rather than ‘added on’ to the BES10 solution, is a real plus that provides us with the best protection,” said Ismael Simoes, CTO for Picard.”

Once again, enterprises that value a secure end-to-end solution choose BlackBerry.
