Up-to-the-Minute Information Sharing Critical to Maintaining Competitive Advantage in Qatar’s Business World, Say Executives
Businesses and residents of Qatar are set to benefit from access to one of the world’s most sophisticated mobile communications tools when they are roaming with any Qtel partner, with the launch of BlackBerry Global Package from Qtel.
Qtel pioneered the launch of BlackBerry in Qatar with the release of the first models in early 2008, and the company has continued to deliver a range of new solutions to meet the needs of Qatar’s dynamic companies and executives.
With the launch of the new BlackBerry Global Package, Qtel is to offer a competitive tariff scheme, specifically designed to meet the needs of growing organizations, which will help companies to manage global roaming charges. Equally, the new competitive tariff will prove attractive for individuals looking to use their BlackBerry when travelling abroad this summer.
The new tariff provides an unlimited local data bundle and a bundle of 8MB for data roaming usage.
Eng. Khalid Abdulla Al-Mansouri, Executive Director of Business Solutions, Qtel, said: “The BlackBerry Solution is among the most advanced mobile applications available today, and one which is increasingly deployed by some of the world’s most successful companies. Qatar’s businesses increasingly expect world-class enterprise solutions, and, with today’s launch, Qtel is again demonstrating our commitment in this sphere.”
“Boosting workplace performance by increasing overall productivity ensures that companies can reap the rewards from a developing economy, and that’s what Qtel’s new BlackBerry Global Package delivers,” added Al-Mansouri.
Fatima Sultan Al-Kuwari – Manager, Wireless Product Management, Qtel, explains: “Qtel continuously analyzes the needs of our customers and looks to provide the highest level of service and support. This new Roaming initiative is part of the ongoing plan to make Qtel’s BlackBerry service the best and most user-friendly in the region.”
The BlackBerry Enterprise Solution from Qtel integrates easily with any existing enterprise systems to extend wireless communication and organizational data applications, including email, to mobile users.
The solution is easy-to-use, enjoys advanced security, and is ‘always on’ so that users send and receive information automatically, maximizing efficiency during operation.
The BlackBerry service from Qtel is available with the following BlackBerry Smartphones: BlackBerry Bold 9000, BlackBerry Curve 8900, BlackBerry Curve 8310, BlackBerry Curve 8320, and the BlackBerry 8820 Smartphone.
