Lots of options.
(1) Send a mass e-mail. This can done through a mailing list setup in your company's e-mail system, through a mass-mailing tool, or through a third-party service. There are many options here. For example, you could use Yahoo! Groups to send a single message that gets transmitted to all your users. (This is more meant for two-way communication, but thee are similar services that work similarly for one-way communication).
(2) Create an RSS feed and have your BB users use a reader like Viigo (which can have alerts) or another similar program.
(3) Same as #1, but use SMS instead of e-mail. Most wireless carriers have an e-mail format (such as
) that you use can send SMS message via an e-mail.
(4) Web page. Look into the BB browser's auto-sync functionality, if this helps your particular need.
