BlackBerry wins 1,600 smartphone deal with Clifford Chance

Law firm to be provided with BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 smartphones, initially in the UK, from early this summer

BlackBerry has signed a contract to roll-out 1,600 BlackBerry 10 smartphones with its recently launched enterprise mobility management solution, BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES 10).

Clifford Chance, which has been a long-standing customer of the manufacturer for over 10 years, will will be supplied with the Z10 (pictured left) and Q10 (pictured right) from early this summer, initially in the UK.

BES 10 is a mobile device and application management solution designed for more control of corporate and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) devices. It includes support for BlackBerry Balance, which separates work and personal adata and applications on the handset.

It is the second major public BlackBerry 10 smartphone contract the manufacturer has won in recent weeks. Last month, it signed a deal with Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust to roll out 1,800 Z10 handsets across its business this year.

Clifford Chance has 35 offices in 25 countries with some 3,400 legal advisors. It has two offices in the UK, both of which are based in London.

BlackBerry UK managing director Rob Orr said: “BlackBerry 10 is a robust and reliable platform that is smooth and responsive. It is designed to learn and adapt to the way you work, which is a distinguishing benefit that resonates strongly with customers. We are proud that Clifford Chance has selected BlackBerry 10 as the foundation of its mobile computing strategy.”

Clifford Chance CIO Paul Greenwood said: “BlackBerry Enterprise Service offers us a strong combination of flexibility, functionality and security. Combined with the new BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 smartphones, it helps our people to be more productive and to deliver excellence in client service.”
