Challenger’s wealth of knowledge on MDM products and the requirement for multiuser log ins led us down the path of SOTI MobiControl. We recommended the Samsung XCover Pro devices for CRS due to the environment they were being used in and provided the devices on a flexible solution for CRS with no upfront capital outlay.
- Multiuser mode: Devices are used by multiple users over different shifts. Each morning, a user picks up the device and logs in using their credentials. Apps and data relevant to that user are then installed.
- Automation: Every evening at 5pm we automatically log out all users, so if a user has forgotten to log out the device will still be wiped and ready to use the next day.
- Kiosk mode: Devices reside in a kiosk mode or lockdown; this secures the device and only displays the apps the users need access to. This helps with productivity as well as apps always reside in the same location and are ordered based on the priority of the application.
- Speed kiosk/lockdown: This capability changes the available apps in the kiosk if the device is moving at a certain speed. This helps with driver safety as applications such as a browser, messaging apps and anything that could distract the driver are removed off screen and cannot be accessed until the vehicle is at a standstill.
- App deployment: Various business critical applications are automatically deployed and kept up to date to ensure users can perform their day-to-day tasks.
- Antivirus: Antivirus is automatically deployed to each device to ensure the device is secured from a variety of threats.
- Secure browser: A secure browser ensures users are blocked from accessing potentially dangerous content that could result in data breaches. It also allows for quick access to specific websites via bookmarks.
To ensure that the SOTI device management roll-out was efficiently managed, a nominated person from each party was involved in the build. Chris from CRS Building Supplies and Rob from Challenger’s MDM partner liaised throughout the project to make sure that the deployment was successful. By opting for our fully managed SOTI Solution, CRS have a dedicated email address with direct access to our MDM Support Team to make any configuration changes needed for future requirements.
