The solution: Build out a modern application framework and deploy thousands of Android smartphone devices.
The client had worked previously with Insight to solve software-related challenges and decided to expand its partnership to include hardware management.
After looking at the client’s needs and long-term goals, our team strategically built out a framework for new applications. For even greater operational efficiencies and back-end agility, we proposed comprehensive device management services spanning procurement, deployment and management of an all-new device fleet.
Ongoing evaluation and discussion with the client fine-tuned goals and brought into sharper focus the level of control and visibility that the client could realize across the device fleet, including device security and loss and theft prevention — a critical business imperative for the retailer.
After considering all variables and the scale of the project, Insight helped the client come up with a pilot plan to successfully test the new framework and devices, creating a full-scale rollout plan that would minimize disruption to daily operations.
The benefits: Increased visibility, seamless adoption and a simplified device ecosystem
With the help of Insight, the client has put hundreds of thousands of new Android devices into employees’ hands, giving workers access to apps needed for work and personal use.
The client, an expert in complicated logistics, has been continually impressed by Insight’s ability to manage the device rollout at scale.
In addition to providing a playbook for implementation, procuring and provisioning, as well as asset management of AirWatch and Workspace ONE, Insight has helped this valued client increase its back-end automation to further streamline operations.
Today, the retail giant has realized its goals of supporting IT modernization on the back end — while improving employee and customer experiences on the front end.
