I am testing it out as i write this and so far im impressed.  I wish everyone at work could have a droid like me and I would have to go through the hassle of installing BES but thats for another day.

I do like with BES that it pushes instantaneously when receiving emails instead of the 15 min delay in BIS.  you also have your contacts, task, and calendar synced as well with out the use of 3rd party applications.  thus far its working well and it did not take long to get off the ground.

my users didnt want to use the desktop manager because they were to lazy to plug it in via usb.  they wanted their calendars to sync outlook and currently we are using google calendar sync which also works well.


The one thing That I think BES will accomplish that BIS will never fix is 1. the fifteen min delay and 2.  BIS has an issue with polling that sometime my users will just receives blocks of emails all at one time and some of the emails should of been received like hours before hand.

again it depends on there needs and what they are looking to get out of it.
