Enterprises using Oracle's Siebel CRM software will be able to extend the application BlackBerry smartphones using software announced today.

Oracle has announced Siebel Wireless for BlackBerry smartphones, as businesses are moving to equip their mobile workforces with the productivity tools available to in-house staff.

Companies using Siebel Wireless will be able to provide CRM (customer relationship management) data to executives, sales teams and service technicians who rely on fast communications and easy access to customer information, Oracle said. Users, for instance, can push notifications or data to any user via the BlackBerry push-based email, voice or SMS (Short Message Service) services.
