Britain's Nottingham Trent University Adopts SOTI MobiControl MDM Solution

By Gerard Longo, Assistant Editor — July 25, 2012

Britain's Nottingham Trent University has chosen SOTI's MobiControl Mobile Device Management solution for management and support of its staff's Samsung Android devices, allowing the university to manage and secure its mobile devices across three campuses and nine different schools.

Using SOTI's MobiControl allows Nottingham Trent University to manage its Samsung devices by streamlining hardware deployments and pushing new and updated software over-the-air. Technical problems can also be fixed over-the-air through MobiControl's help desk tools, which allows the IT team at Nottingham Trent round-the-clock remote control capabilities.

Nottingham Trent University's Mike Day, who serves as IS Director for the University, stated in an official joint press release that using MobiControl is efficient, both from a cost and time management standpoint.

"We have selected SOTI's MobiControl to manage and secure our mobile staff's Samsung Android devices so that we can offer our clients the latest information in a timely and safe way, thus enhancing efficiency and service while reducing downtime and costs," Day said.

SOTI President and CEO Carl Rodrigues also seems pleased with the partnership, citing the need for educational institutions like Nottingham Trent University to manage their mobile devices effectively as mobility increasingly figures into their educational gameplans.

"As educators increasingly adopt the use of tablets, there is a need for good tools to manage these devices. We are pleased that we have satisfied Nottingham Trent's high standards, and that our MobiControl solution has been selected to manage, support, secure and track their tablets," Rodrigues said. "Our solution enables the University to focus on delivering a high standard of education to students, while MobiControl protects and manages their devices."
