FancyFon allows companies to manage devices on their network over the Internet. Their mobile software interacts with servers and databases, to provide large organizations and government with the ability to rollout new services OTA as well as provide remote support and diagnostics.
FancyFon will be taking their services to the BlackBerry space, now that they have recently become an official BlackBerry Independent Software Vendor (ISV). The company began their Alpha support for BlackBerry back in December of 2008, meaning they’ve had 2 years of supporting other platforms until now.
While we’ve written about several companies that offer remote BlackBerry support, we’re going to continue to cover everyone in the space. It’s the easiest way to remain unbiased.
The FancyFon FAMOC device management platform can support multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Servers (version 4.0, with plans to support version 5.0 by Q3 2009).
With so many companies providing remote BlackBerry support, the market is becoming increasingly specialized and tailored to specific markets. It’s not clear what competitive advantage FancyFon provides, so perhaps we’ll get them on BlackBerry Cool to explain it themselves.
