Stratix joins Android Enterprise Recommended initiative
Managed mobile services (MMS) provider Stratix Corporation has joined the Android Enterprise Recommended program, which focuses on giving customers the confidence in deploying Android ensuring them that their enterprise mobility deployment is consistent and up-to-date.
As part of this initiative, validated managed service providers (MSP) partners are trained on the latest best practices from Google to help customers simplify their mobility programmes.
The program MSPs will demonstrate customers with technical expertise and leadership with dedicated personnel trained by Google on implementing and supporting Android; Android Enterprise Recommended enterprise mobility management systems; a close working relationship with Google for planning and escalation issues; and a commitment to staying in touch with the latest Android product features and training requirements.
Google launched the Android Enterprise Recommended program in January with nine of its partners, namely BlackBerry, Google Cloud, I3 Systems, IBM, Microsoft, MobileIron, SoftBank, SOTI, and VMware. The programme has been able to demonstrate a number of requirements, from a ‘proven ability to deliver advanced security and management features’, as well as a consistent deployment experience and Google-trained personnel across field sales, technical pre-sales, and deployment support.
According to Stratix, mobility is playing a bigger role than ever in terms of hardware for retail associates. Whether it was the focus of payment providers looking to exhibit their wares in mobile and hybrid Point of Sale (mPoS) configurations, or merchandising planning platforms positioned to empower store staff and reduce training time with detailed assembly and placement guidance, it was all about the tablet. From large national chains to regional retailers, a common realisation is that mobile hardware and software management is not one of their core competencies, and they must seek lasting partnerships with aggregators and service providers who can help them use these technologies to retain customers.
