Online PR News – 15-November-2015 – Santa Clara,California – ABC Supply is a $5.25 billion enterprise that has revolutionized the roofing material distribution business. ABC Supply chose 42Gears for enterprise mobility solutions that would help increase the efficiency of its associates.
ABC Supply employs a large workforce. This workforce, referred to as â€˜Associatesâ€™, is constantly on the move delivering supplies to customers at their sites. These associates carry with them company owned smartphones that are used for communicating, accessing company mails and capturing Proof of Delivery (POD). The smartphones can cause distractions while at work and while driving.
ABC Supply wanted to ensure focus and safety of its work force. It wanted a solution that would allow access only to authorized applications on the device. ABC Supply chose SureLock after evaluating different products. "SureLock is a must for devices deployed in the field. The security and control it offers is unparalleled. IT admins like it for its simplicity", says Kaushik Sindhu, Senior Manager Product Engineering, 42Gears.
ABC Supply extensively explored SureLock features and has been happy to find that the product covers all their requirements. Features like Cloud Export and Import of Settings in SureLock allows export of device settings to the cloud which could then be pushed to multiple devices for auto configuration across different locations. With this feature, there is no need for an MDM solution to replicate settings across devices. This saves a lot of effort for IT Admins while setting up devices.
â€œGreat application! Out of all the launchers we tried, SureLock was the easiest to setup and administer. Especially the use of Cloud IDs to change phone configurations remotely.We needed a strong device lockdown solution to supplement our MDM and SureLock just did that. Saved my time and the ease of configuration is what benefited me the most" says Derrick Wash, Systems Administrator, ABC Supply Co. Inc.
With this implementation of SureLock solution ABC Supply predicts reduction in effort to manage devices and settings. This in turn will result in reduced device support and maintenance costs and increased efficiency of the Associates.
