The partnership will enhance the availability of BlackBerry's enterprise mobility portfolio to business customers by leveraging HCL Infosystems' extensive pan-India network of enterprise distribution partners.
As well as sales support, customers will also have access to HCL Infosystems' IT deployment support and integration capabilities that will help them to migrate seamlessly or consolidate their Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) investments.
