Full Story


As a small start-up company that operates almost entirely virtually, Remote Stylist needed a way to stay connected with clients, partners and staff. With offices in Toronto and New York, and a team that spends most of their time on the road, the business needed a reliable solution that would lower overhead costs.


Remote Stylist now uses the BlackBerry® solution to help run its entire business. The team uses BlackBerry smartphones for communications, makes extensive use of the applications available from BlackBerry App World™ and uses BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM™) to stay in touch while traveling.
