Free version of BES now available for Notes

RIM's BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express edition now supports Domino servers in addition to Exchange

Research in Motion today released a free version of its BlackBerry Express Server (BES) for IBM Domino servers, which run Lotus Notes. The Express version allows an unlimited number of users but has a subset of the mobile management tool's policies: 75 out of the full version's more than 500 policies.

Last spring, RIM released a version of BES Express for Microsoft Exchange that supported 35 policies. The InfoWord Test Center judged that the limited set of policies was enough for most businesses' management needs.

The version of BES Express released today works with Microsoft Exchange, Windows Small Business Server, Lotus Domino, and Lotus Messaging Server. Companies can deploy both the free and paid servers, such as using the paid version for high-compliance-requirement users and the free version for users with access to less valuable data or those who use personal BlackBerries for just basic activities.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
