Kees van Veenendaal, GM & VP Sales EMEA at MobileIron says: "We have been receiving a lot of enquiries from customers in the Middle East asking us to provide an integrated solution that is mobile device agnostic and provides advanced management to their smartphone data, applications and access on their Blackberry, iPhone, Windows Mobile, Symbian and Android. MobileIron’s Virtual Smartphone Platform provides just that.
Van Veenendaal says after an extensive search for the most qualified and capable partner that can deliver the company’s solution to customers, MobileIron chose EMW primarily for its mobile technology expertise and exceptional customer service, in addition to the capable technical staff that constitutes 80% of its workforce. “EMW has built up a very impressive base of clients over the past seven years in voice, data, wireless and unified communications and in our mind is undoubtedly the right choice," he says.
The MobileIron Virtual Smartphone Platform is the first solution to combine data- driven smartphone management with real-time wireless cost control. It provides visibility into what’s on a smartphone and how it’s being used, letting both IT and users better secure data and control costs without compromising privacy, even on employee-owned phones. The Virtual Smartphone Platform is packaged as an easy-to-install server that plugs into the corporate network and is up and running in less than a day. It lets companies get smartphone operations under control quickly with its ‘Advanced Management’ feature powered by virtual phone architecture. Its ‘Mobile Activity Intelligence’ can cut wireless bills up to 20%. Enterprise end-user Web experience is enhanced through better service quality, access to internal and external mobile applications and full usage visibility.
Serjios El-Hage, CEO at EMW Middle East, says, the company is privileged to have been chosen by MobileIron to represent its solutions in the Middle East. “The needs of our customers are our number one priority and we keep a close eye on the latest technologies that help increase their productivity and efficiencies while reducing costs. Mobile management is the trend of the future and our partnership with MobileIron is perfectly in line with our strategy of working with vendors who provide best-of-breed products and services." El-Hage says.
