Driving Success at the Front Lines

It's on the front lines of business where your employees—such as mobile sales people, field service engineers, and workers in remote offices and retail sites—interact with your customers. It's where technology can give you a competitive edge, offering you the opportunity to radically improve market share and profitability.

But just having devices and applications on the front lines is not a guarantee your company will achieve breakthrough improvements, because of the unique challenges of the frontline environment:

  • Security: More and more of your enterprise—along with its data and transactions—is moving to the front lines. Because devices on the front lines represent your most vulnerable computing environment, the data on these devices needs to be secured, particularly if the devices become lost or stolen. Further, the ability to enforce security policies centrally is paramount—security needs to be in the hands of IT, not in the hands of workers, who may fail to follow, or try to work around, safe computing practices.
  • Lack of adoption: Workers on the front lines face low bandwidth and unreliable connections, as opposed to the always on, high-speed LAN of a headquarters environment. However, regardless of the bandwidth available, workers on the front lines need the latest versions of applications, content and data to effectively do their jobs. If they can't depend on their devices to provide them with reliable, upto- date information, they'll quickly toss them aside.
  • Loss of control: With hundreds or thousands of frontline devices, IT faces some major challenges. How do you know what applications are on each device? How do you update applications, content and data over low-bandwidth connections? How do you handle different requirements for different groups? And how do you accomplish all this for a variety of devices, including handhelds, smartphones, laptops and tablets?

Choose Afaria when:

  • You want to manage any of a broad range of frontline devices, such as laptops and tablets, handhelds, Pocket PCs, smart phones, POS systems, and remote desktops and servers.
  • You have or are moving toward IP connectivity for all your frontline workers.
  • You want frequent, "right time" data transport and synchronization between your headquarters and your front lines.
  • You need advanced systems management capabilities that rival traditional desktop management solutions but extend beyond the headquarters LAN.
