Espoo, Finland – Nokia is recording a surge of new customers for its Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, putting the company at the forefront of accelerated mobile email adoption in the region. Many companies such as Bayerischer Rundfunk, Austrian Federal Football League, Computerlinks and Sparkassen Informatik offer their employees mobile access to email via the Nokia Intellisync Wireless Email solution.
Security, scalability and a broad compatibility with a large number of mobile devices and groupware solutions are among the top criteria for the companies to choose Nokia Intellisync Wireless Email. At the same time the modular structure of Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite allows highest flexibility; a range of applications such as device management or file synchronization can be easily and flexibly added as and when mobility needs grow going forward.
Secure mobile email access was only one aspect for Sparkassen Informatik to implement Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite. Another important factor was remote access to sensitive information in their corporate data base. The solution offers the possibility to share documents and Intranet based content with mobile workers and update the content automatically on the mobile devices. “Given our structure where each branch manages employees independently, multitenancy was a paramount requirement for our wireless email solution, in addition to a secure offering,” says Norbert Schmautz, System administrator for Sparkassen Informatik.
Mobile email is also very important for Computerlinks Switzerland: “Especially in our fast moving business, it is our competitive advantage to be agile – to be able to react quickly to any market condition or customer request in a secure way,” says Derk Steffens, managing director at Computerlinks AG Switzerland. “We have chosen Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite as we wanted to implement the solution behind the firewall – we did not want to make any compromise in security matters.”
The employees of the Austrian Federal Football league work remotely on their emails using Nokia E50 and E61 devices.
“We especially value the flexibility and the ease of use of the Nokia wireless email solution. As the email sycnronization can be activated or switched off at the push of a button, the user himself can decide whether he wants to be available or not,” says Bernd Berghofer, marketing and sales manager, Austrian Federal Football League. “Thus, private and business life play well together, given the many games we have during the weekends”.
At Bayerischer Rundfunk about 200 reporters use mobile email. Device management helps the company to control the device fleet. “We selected Nokia Intellisync Wireless Email as it fulfilled all our criteria such as fast and secure access to mobile email as well as mobile synchronization of contact and calendar details,” says Josef Spitzlberger IT manager, Bayerischer Rundfunk. “From an IT perspective an easy integration into our existing IT infrastructure was key as well as the central management of all devices via the device management module of Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite.”
It is also very important for staff at the technical directorate to be highly accessible since the IT systems cannot be “down” in a media environment. The alert function running via the Nokia solution enables the technical directorate staff at Bayerischer Rundfunk to be advised quickly if problems arise.
“The examples of Sparkassen Informatik or Bayerischer Rundfunk clearly show how important it is to consider mobility as part of the company’s overall IT strategy. We recommend companies to take a holistic view on mobility solutions rather than focus on single mobility deployments,” says Mikko Stout, sales head for Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, Enterprise Solutions, Nokia. “In this respect, it is paramount that the chosen mobility solution does not only support mobile email, but can scale and grow together with a company’s mobility requirements beyond email, as well as integrate into the existing IT infrastructure according to the highest security requirements.”
