Default Migration from Desktop Redirector to BES

Please Login to Remove!

I have a small company. I have had a 7250 on Verizon for 2 years using Redirector for mail forwarding. I am the only BB user. I just found out the BB offers the BES for 1 user for free. I have a 1.5 year old server (loaded up) and everything is current. We have plenty of room. I also have a legacy data server and a DMZ server. Questions:

Is it worth the effort to migrate from desktop redirector? Redirector craps out about 20% of the time on weekends, like this weekend.

How difficult is the install? What is the minium time required for my Network consultant to get BES installed (he is good)? I am trying to estimate time costs here.

Definitely worth it. If your network is not too complicated it should be an easy setup.
