Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Cylance, their newest antivirus product, is the most valuable feature for us so far.""The containerization of the workspace is what we have found to be the most valuable.""Access to the emails on the go was most valuable. Having access to your emails in a secure way is one of the most important features of this solution. Blackberry ensures data security, and as a user, I can use it while on roaming or wherever I am.""If a device is stolen, you have the power to remove all of the contents remotely. You can do this very quickly.""The technical support for the solution is excellent."

"As an administrator, I really love the integration with Apple Business Manager.""I have found the most valuable feature to be the policies.""I found that automated enrollment is very powerful because you can bring standardization to the environment.""We can set custom deployments based on every available parameter in macOS.""Being able to push out elevation policies to users on an Adhoc basis helps us when users are not in the office.""It's a scalable product.""The most valuable feature is the ability to manage all devices through Apple's DEP and forcing them into Jamf pre-stage enrollment.""We found the initial setup to be simple."

Cons
"The pain points for us would be the activation.""One fault that BlackBerry has is its salesforce. Their direct salesforce department is changing its salespeople constantly. One client I had, over a period of about three years, went through four salespeople. That continuity is a problem, in terms of dealing with the customers.""It would be ideal if there was something for communication with Microsoft tools like Teams or Skype for Business, or perhaps even with Zoom for conference calls.""More devices supported like iOS, Android, and API so it can support various platforms to enhance the experience.""The installations on the device could be simpler. It is a good solution, and all the features are there. So, there isn't a lot to improve. I'm sure they already have their thought process on how to improve it.""We cannot integrate BlackBerry Edit from BlackBerry Enterprise. BlackBerry Edit has issues when we are editing any document. We have other internal applications that we can use for documents, but we cannot edit into BlackBerry Edit. There's room for improvement with editing documents."

"Patch Management needs work to be efficient.""The reporting with PowerBI could be improved.""The upgrade process of this solutions could be improved. It is not possible to use Jamf Pro to upgrade devices.""I wish there was a profile that could be created for configuring Apple software updates on a global basis for our devices, via a configuration profile.""The reporting needs to be improved so that generating them is more user-friendly.""In some places, GUI could be more reactive.""I think that there should also be more integrations with Jamf that could better the intelligence-gathering when making business decisions.""One of the big areas in need of improvement is automated device naming for computers."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We pay about $6 a year for the solution. There are no extra costs on top of that. You save a lot of money when you use this product."
  • "We currently pay by the year, but the licenses are calculated on a monthly basis."
  • "The licensing costs are paid on a yearly basis because we just renewed the license. If you have some big issue, they will also charge you."
  • "It was on a yearly support contract, and the licenses were perpetual. There was also the implementation cost and the support cost for the integrator."

  • "I know that as a school we get a discounted price, which is good because without it we would not be able to afford it."
  • "Don’t go into a sales call without knowing all the details of your system because Jamf has a ton of tools outside of Jamf Pro to offer and knowing them ahead of time is a must."
  • "JumpStart is available at an additional cost."
  • "This is a pricey solution."
  • "The price of a training pass for five people was $18,000 USD."
  • "JumpStart looks a little bit pricey; however, it is worth every penny."
  • "This product is surely worth the cost of implementation."
  • "The cost of any licensing is certainly outweighed by the time saved from manually managing Apple devices."
