Mobile Device Management as a Service

Head of IT: »The Softline Managed Cloud Service creates the flexibility all colleagues need for their work at home and on the road, without compromising on anything. And at the same time, I have more time for other IT issues and don't have to worry about our security. It is as easy as it gets.«

The requirements of our customer from the middle class for a powerful, scalable and secure IT are high - quite in contrast to the budget available to it for this. That's why it uses Softline's managed service for the central management of her mobile devices.
