Importance of device security
In the everyday life of Lion Pack Group, mobile devices play a crucial role. Their business management and IT department have iPhones, the manufacturing management use Windows Phones, and the rest of manufacturing have Android and iPad tablets. These tablets run applications developed in-house to access company servers, ensuring seamless access to up-to-date product data – even if designers make changes, so there is no chance of using the wrong machine setup.
The introduction of mobile devices to manufacturing resulted in an impressive 15-20% reduction in machine setup times, but it also made it necessary to quickly bring in an effective mobile device management solution.
“Securing devices with access to company data became a very important part of our daily work. We had to have control of what software goes on the devices and be able to deal with missing mobile devices immediately. Encryption and passcode lock was another must, along with denying access to public and unlocked Wi-Fi,” Lion Pack Group’s CIO Mile Jančić explains.
Simple and centrally managed
After testing different MDM solutions, Lion Pack Group contacted Miradore.
“What we liked about Miradore is simple enrollment, an intuitive interface, flawless operation and the fact they care about improving their product. Though in an ideal world I’d have us using just one operating system, with Miradore managing devices on multiple platforms is working fine, too.”
The company is currently rolling out a delivery tracking system and enabling live insights into the current production run. There is certainly plenty of potential to make use of Miradore Online’s more advanced features too. Even as it is, Miradore Online is saving both Jančić and his device users a lot of headaches and precious time, as the devices are secured and centrally managed.
“What I find most useful about Miradore is the ability to easily ensure a higher standard of device security and change configurations without having to handle the device personally. Most of the users are not even aware of their device being remotely managed, while some are pleased to be able to call me and say: “I’ve changed my Wi-Fi password at home, can you please connect my phone to it?”
Miradore Online has clearly proven to be a sweet deal for Lion Pack Group. A happy IT department and happy employees is a combination to strive for, and we at Miradore are proud to have helped another customer achieve that.
