VIENNA, March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileIron (NASDAQ: MOBL), the security backbone for the digital enterprise, today announced that Hilfswerk Niederösterreich, an Austrian provider of social services, chose the MobileIron platform to enhance the mobility of its 3,600 staff and 2,800 volunteers. The 26,000 seniors, children, and families using their services are among those who will benefit.
MobileIron's Enterprise Mobility Management platform was chosen by Hilfswerk NÖ's IT experts to manage the company's Android, iOS, and Windows Phone devices.
Hilfswerk NÖ uses MobileIron Email+, a secure productivity centric email, contacts, calendar, and tasks experience on iOS and Android devices, as well as two apps from external service providers for resource scheduling and timekeeping, in addition to the acknowledgement and billing of services provided.
"We save a great deal of time installing, configuring, and servicing employees' mobile devices. MobileIron's Help@Work remote support feature makes it easy for us to provide anywhere support to smartphone users," said Erwin Kocher, head of IT, Hilfswerk NÖ.
"We advised Hilfswerk NÖ in the decision-making process and supported the project from the start. MobileIron won the contract with Hilfswerk NÖ not only because it has always supplied excellent support across the Android ecosystem where it provides rich features, but also because it continues to support older Android versions which are vital to the employees' productivity," said Johannes Bachlechner, Solution Design ICT Technology Solutions, Kapsch BusinessCom AG IT, the ICT service partner for the project.
Kapsch BusinessCom AG, MobileIron's long-time partner in Austria, implemented the MobileIron platform at Hilfswerk NÖ.
