Management, Communication, and Regulation at Scalefusion, we have always found these virtues at the core of our skillset and, in one way or another, have adhered to these values in any and every type of service we roll out. And so when the client approached us to find a solution to their Android Device and Mobile Application Management challenges, we took it upon ourselves to meet every challenge head-on and help them achieve their business goals.

With the ultimate goal of increasing digital fluency, we started a mobility initiative that helped the client in deploying their in-house mobile apps to their employee’s and associates’ corporate-owned devices to make them more efficient, engaging, and productive. However, we had to address more problems than one due to the diverse mix of managed and unmanaged corporate-owned mobile devices that thousands of clients’ globally dispersed employees were using. A solution to distribute apps to all employees using the corporate-owned device and provide a consistent experience that gets mobile apps in the hands of users in a seamless, easy-to-use way; was the need of the hour.

Enter Scalefusion, a multi-faceted offering that helps the client control and manages its corporate-owned devices through a cloud-based dashboard. Not only did it enable them to remotely distribute apps and content to the devices from a central location, but Scalefusion’s single & multi-app kiosk modes also helped the company meet various other challenges. The client used the Scalefusion Enterprise store to manage and distribute their custom apps along with Scalefusion’s device profile and grouping feature to group their devices and apply specific settings.

Whilst, the single-app mode helped in running only the Point of Sale (POS) apps for use in stores, the multi-app kiosk mode helped in accessing custom store management applications, which enabled the client to control various aspects of the user experience and prevent unauthorized actions on the devices. Also, the use of the Scalefusion Enterprise Store helps the company to roll out updates for its application in a much faster and smoother manner.

A Bunch of Other Mobile Application Management Complications Were Resolved by Scalefusion

1. Through the Scalefusion Enterprise Store, the new releases of their in-house apps can be remotely installed on all of their devices from the dashboard and don’t need the availability of respective devices for a manual update. This not only saves on a lot of costs but also the herculean to-and-fro process that comes with it.

2. The version control feature of the Scalefusion Enterprise Store enabled the client to roll back the app to the previous version if there were any new/updated app issues, helping them maintain business continuity.

3. Being a major conglomerate, the client had its offshoots across the globe, and dealing with diversity was coming off as a hectic process. This is where Scalefusion Pro came to the fore with its cloud-based Device Management Dashboard, which helped clients easily enroll, control, and manage all their devices. This also negated the mandate of returning the devices to a single warehouse.

4. Scalefusion understands the gravitas of a robust security interface; ergo, it records any incidents in the security log files when someone forcefully tries to swap SIM cards or exit from the company-owned devices. This helped the client in keeping a strong check on safety and reliability.

Scalefusion proved to be a great value addition to the ranks whilst regulating the Mobile Application Management process of the company, thereby saving unauthorized usage, time, and money.

Thousands of businesses rely upon Scalefusion for managing their mobile device, desktops, laptops and other endpoints
