Absolute Software helps UK’s leading commercial radio group transform mobile device management
Global’s IT team has to manage around 1,700 valuable mobile devices, used across the UK. Sales staff are frequently out of the office meeting prospects whilst staff at the Exeter office, which covers south west England, may only come into the office once a fortnight.
The challenge for IT was managing device logistics and inventory, reducing user and device downtime and, with relatively high staff churn, tracking devices when people leave. Global had reviewed a number of different products, but found they were either too expensive or only supported specific device types or operating systems, until they found Absolute Manage for Mobile Devices (MDM).
