HHNK regional water board

The HHNK regional water board purifies wastewater and ensures that the over 1 million people living in the northwest of the Netherlands have access to clean water. It also maintains roads and bridges in rural areas and provides crisis management services in the region. The water board also supports surrounding towns and villages in managing risks related to rising sea levels and changing weather conditions in areas situated below sea level. Additionally, HHNK monitors over 870 miles (1.400 km) of coastline therewith contributing to flood prevention.

Efficiency in communication and management

The secure, containerized MobileIron environment is centralized in the organization. It ensures that all HHNK employees have safe and easy access to information and allows field staff to use secure apps on the road. For example, employees use a perspective app to submit maintenance requests based on situational snapshots of problems, such as potholes. Office staff also use a meeting app to take notes during meetings to share with their colleagues later. Finally, teams can safely edit and share email documents and files using MobileIron’s Docs@Work. The new digital way of work has been integrated into the workplace so effectively that HHNK is seeing a well-marked decrease in paper documentation.

The IT department at HHNK is responsible for management of the MobileIron environment and the iOS and Android enterprise devices used by the HHNK staff. The ease of management and the native support for multiple operating systems were critical success factors in completing the digital transformation.

“MobileIron is ideal for us. Its multi-OS platform supports all the implementation technologies we use to configure devices, including the Apple Device Management Program (DEP), Android Enterprise, and Samsung Knox,” said Bas Wassink, application manager at HHNK. “This allows us to offer our employees a choice, while still ensuring that all the data on the selected device is fully and easily secured. By using MobileIron, we have significantly improved efficiency within a short timeframe and have raised employee satisfaction. We were also able to meet our sustainability goals.”

“We are proud to support the security of an organization that fulfills such an important task in the Netherlands. It is fascinating to see how HHNK has achieved such a huge transformation in a short time, with the help of many of our solutions,” said Hendrik Van De Velde, Benelux managing director at MobileIron. “HHNK offers its employees various choices and user convenience, while simultaneously making the most of the available implementation and management technologies. This makes HHNK a classic example of a company that has embraced the modern approach to work.”
