Full Story


  • Until recently, the companies within the Damen Shipyards Group operated with a high level of independence. Each business unit was fully responsible for its own Profit and Loss statement. Gradually, however, the business units realised that this wasnt the most efficient way to operate, especially when it came to technology
  • Damen is a very international group, with managers and executives travelling extensively. As a result, some business units found themselves facing huge roaming costs for mobile data access
  • The company needed to find a way to reduce mobile roaming costs, yet still provide a secure, reliable mobile email solution that could be managed centrally


  • BlackBerry® Smartphones


  • The company has seen a 60% cost reduction, mainly due to the savings on data roaming charges. The solution is expected to pay for itself in four to eight months
  • Security of data and manageability of the solution are two key advantages
  • The device experience of BlackBerry smartphones has increased user satisfaction
