Global chemical company Solvay selected Orange Business Services to manage and secure its fleet of 7,500 mobile devices and simplify mobility management.
Headquartered in Brussels, Belgium and operating in 56 countries, Solvay needed a solution to securely manage its employees’ growing use of smartphones and tablets worldwide.
The Orange mobile device management (MDM) solution allows employees to securely access their corporate resources and collaborate with their colleagues from any smartphone and any tablet.
The solution also reduces and controls the cost associated with managing and supporting Solvay’s heterogeneous fleet of devices, including iOS and Android, as well as both professional and personal devices.
The solution offered by Orange is based on the MobileIron platform and will be managed and hosted in the Orange Business Services Cloud for more flexibility and increased security.
With role-based administration, it allows Solvay’s central IT department to manage global policies while delegating the daily management of local devices to the regional IT and support teams.
The solution also simplifies the distribution of applications on employees’ devices and controls functionality.
Most recently, Merck, a science and technology company in healthcare, life science and performance materials, has deployed a 200-site, next-generation network to support its digital transformation with the help of Orange Business Services.
Orange Business Services, which would help the 350 year-old family-owned company with its digital transformation, did not reveal the financial details of the deal.
Last month, Orange Business Services signed a network and security deal with consumer and industrial goods manufacturer Henkel.
“The team of experts at Orange Business Services is simple to work with and quickly became our trusted business partner. Their flexibility and responsiveness were important success factors,” said Philippe Panis, IS Infrastructure Services Director at Solvay Business Services at Solvay.
