REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 24, 2012) -
- Features easy to use interface
- Provides roaming cost control
- Protects devices, network, apps, and data
Zenprise®, Inc., the leader in secure Mobile Device Management (MDM), today announced that Sabre Pacific has selected Zenprise to secure and manage its fleet of corporate-issued and personally owned iPhones and iPads.
Sabre Pacific, a leading provider of technology to the travel industry in the South Pacific, connects travel buyers and sellers through the world's largest travel marketplace, the Sabre Global Distribution System. As a leading technology provider with a large field sales organization and client-facing technicians, it is important for the company to stay on the leading edge of emerging technology.
The company began a program to provide its field personnel with corporate-issued iPads. As it began to map out the process, the Sabre Pacific IT team heard from employees in other departments, including executives, asking to use their own iPhones and iPads for work. The Sabre Pacific IT team wanted to say "yes" to these employees. In order to do so, they determined they needed a world-class MDM solution that provided the highest level of security and compliance possible.
The Sabre Pacific IT team evaluated four leading MDM solutions. They also spoke with several IT counterparts at other companies, including some in financial services, another highly regulated market. Sabre Pacific also discussed MDM solutions with leading industry analyst firms. Following a thorough evaluation, Sabre Pacific selected Zencloud™ from Zenprise.
"We chose Zencloud from Zenprise for three primary reasons. First, we already have dozens of servers to manage. We didn't need one more," said Lisa Phelan, technical lead for Sabre Pacific. "Second, the Zenprise interface is intuitive and easy to use; and third, Zenprise enables us to provide a great experience for our end users. We wanted to roll out productivity apps such as Intercall with no disruption to users. As an added bonus, I found the Zenprise deployment to be the smoothest I've ever experienced in my 20 years of doing this."
Since implementing Zencloud, Sabre Pacific is now able to support a mix of corporate-issued and personally owned iPhones and iPads. Zencloud enables the Sabre Pacific IT department to:
- Deploy configurations and policies quickly and easily
- Put controls in place to reduce roaming charges
- Govern and manage devices while preserving the end user experience
- Provide field sales and service personnel with the mobile devices that reflect Sabre Pacific's commitment to using the latest devices and applications
"Sabre Pacific is a terrific example of a company that is using mobile devices and technology to optimize how they do business," said Ahmed Datoo, Zenprise CMO. "We're excited to be working with them as they continue to lead the way for technology in the travel industry."
