Marketing and brand activation company NCompass International required a communication solution that would allow its teams to handle a heavy volume of email messages and efficiently connect with its international offices. Since many of the company’s events are logistically challenging and take place in global venues with thousands of people, it also required a solution that would function reliably, seamlessly and economically.
For many years NCompass has deployed only BlackBerry smartphones under the company’s corporate plan. Its teams rely on BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) and other BlackBerry smartphone features to communicate with one another and keep track of the many moving parts of their events. The team often leverages the calendar functionality to help them meet all timelines and the integrated internet browser functions to monitor social media activity occurring in near real-time. NCompass has also deployed about 20 BlackBerry PlayBook tablets, mainly to its production and new business staff.
