Most home office workers and small business owners know how tough it can be to juggle the conflicting demands on their time. In addition to being out and about all day as a salesperson, credit controller, general manager and everything in-between, the busy entrepreneur also needs to make time for relaxation, friends and family.

Mobile solutions such as BlackBerry® smartphones put busy people like you in control of their lives. Whether you’re on the road, in the office or at home, a BlackBerry smartphone puts you in charge of your time and workload. It transforms your day with immediate access to email, Internet, phone, multimedia, camera functionality and numerous personal and business applications – all in one sleek smartphone device.

It enables you to make better use of your time, respond quickly to customers, drum up sales, do admin on the go, and stay in touch with the people who matter. You’ll have your office with you on the road – meaning that you can stay in touch with staff, customers and suppliers, win sales by responding quicker to enquiries, and act rapidly when a new opportunity or crisis arises.

Just a few examples of how a BlackBerry smartphone could bring benefit to your work and personal life include:
•    Be organized. The BlackBerry solution allows you to fully sync your email, contacts and calendar appointments with your PC or Mac so that you’re always in control of whenever and wherever you are.
•    Communicate. The ability to contact the people that are important to you can be invaluable when on the move. BlackBerry smartphones let you use popular instant messaging apps (like BlackBerry Messenger, GTalk, AOL), email, SMS, MMS and a host of other third-party messaging apps to stay in touch with customers and colleagues as well as friends and family.
•    Be up-to-date. Whether it’s the latest rugby scores, weather forecast or stock prices you’re after, you can stay in touch with information that’s personally important to you. Likewise there are thousands of quality apps on BlackBerry App World™ that are specifically created for small businesses to stay productive and have up-to-date sales and customer information available at your finger tips when on the move.
•    Third party business applications.  On top of all the free functionality available on your smartphone, there’s a huge choice of leading business applications and accessories available to download via BlackBerry App World. These specialist tools provide an array of smart business productivity, sales and customer focused solutions, as well as information, travel and news resources.

There are a variety of ways you can connect your BlackBerry smartphone to what’s important to you. The BlackBerry® Internet Bundle gives you instant connectivity to renowned BlackBerry features, with the recently launched, free-to-download BlackBerry® Enterprise Server Express providing small businesses with a compelling way to fully wirelessly sync BlackBerry smartphones with the company’s IT environment (namely Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Small Business Server).

A BlackBerry smartphone lets you make the most of your working day so that you’re not stuck in the office answering emails and doing admin after a hard day of meetings. That equates to more time for you to spend on important things, like sales and customer service, and frees up your diary for some personal time too.
