Full Story


In the event of a service interruption with their email system, Airbus wanted to keep employees sending short messages to each other using PIN-to-PIN services on their BlackBerry® smartphones. They needed an easily accessible directory of end-user PINs to make this happen.


Airbus used PINpoint, an application from Tenet Computer Group. The application provides an up-to-date contact list pulled from the smartphone information managed on the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server and Airbus corporate directory.
