Smile B*Nator wow this is awesome

Please Login to Remove!

I had a demo with B*Nator yestardy and I was just slightly impressed. Not only do they package admin task, monitoring and reporting in one web based client that can be managed globally, but they have a client that gets pushed out to the Blackberry and it allows you to remote control the end users Blackberry right from the webconsole. I was blown away by this. Is anyone using this or have you used this in the past. I'm trying to see what other benifits or negative attributes other BB admins have with this software.

Its like berrystats on steriods, Boxtone, and MOM all rolled into one. The price is cheap to. I think the price might be cheap because they are hungry as more people adopt this solution I'm sure the price per seat will go up. Its basically a software application that hooks into your BES, SQL, exchange and Web server. You can control everything from the webconsole. It comes with a hidden or visble client that gets pushed out to your end users Blackberry's. The agent allows you to remote control the Blackberry from the webconsole so you see your users screen and can drive just like the BB is in your hand. Its got monitoring out the a$$ and all the basic reporting and admin task are tied into it also. They even give you ping statistics to the wap carrier that you can config for pageable events. When I saw the remote assistance to the Blackberry I was blown out of my f'ing chair. I had never seen that before.

I demo'd it and quite frankly I wasn't that impressed myself. The remote control client is S-L-O-W. It is a nice feature, however the speed of the connection between the controller and the device was the deal breaker for me. I'll admit I had high hopes going into the demo and afterwards I had one more solution to cross off my list. The Web GUI could use some work, I thought it was too busy and tried to cram alot of information into one screen. Pricewise it's more expensive than say Conceivium's solution and the features between those two are comparable minus the B*nator remote control. That's my take on it any way...

I will say that I've yet to be impressed with the actual product, although the laundry list of features has been impressive since last year. The thing that most impressed me this year was a) the amount of Jager these guys could drink (I'm rarely the first to leave a table), and b) the girl one of the B*Nator dorks brought with him from Germany... we're talking runway model hot blonde.

But back on to the product, I would agree with ELBeast.

LOL!

Doesn't one of the B*nator guys look a lot like Rainn Wilson from The Office..

As for the hot blonde.. I think he's her pimp!
