An Post Selects Good Technology to put Official Stamp on Mobile Security
|Richard Harris in Mobile Tech Wednesday, April 9, 2014|
An Post is an excellent example of driving productivity by providing senior executives with fast and secure mobile capabilities. The Irish Postal Service was seeking a trusted partner to offer a streamlined and secure way for executives to interact with confidential and sensitive information while working remotely. Good for Enterprise enables An Post executives to collaborate anytime, anywhere and harness the mobile potential at their fingertips.
John Cronin, Group Chief Information Officer, of An Post, said: “In 2012, we began re-evaluating our mobility approach with two priorities in mind. The first was finding the highest level of security and the second was providing increased mobility for our executive team. Following our evaluation of other solutions, Good Technology came out on top as the most flexible and complete solution that could manage our BYOD network and lead our mobility strategy for the future.”
“We were involved in the search to make sure our management team would not experience any time lost while implementing a new mobile solution, including minimal adoption time. Instead of pushback on our new security solution, our IT team is getting great feedback from executives. Once logged into Good, they experience confidence and ease working with emails, contacts, calendar, sensitive documents and instant messaging - all while keeping the users personal and professional information separate. Executives were also asking to travel light with their tablet or phone, leaving their laptop behind. Now we can securely allow them to do this and they are much more productive and responsive on the go.”
An Post is one of Ireland's largest employers providing much more than post delivery, including a wide range of services which encompass distribution, communication, retail and financial services. According to a recent webinar by analyst firm Forrester, today mobility means a much wider shift into new systems of engagement that enables companies to empower every sphere of its business. An Post is doing just that in the next phase of their mobility strategy as they leverage the Good Dynamics platform further by developing custom mobile apps to streamline operations and enhance customer service across Ireland.
"An Post is a fantastic company to work with. It’s one of our first customers piloting Splashtop for Good, secure remote desktop access with Good Dynamics. An Post is constantly looking for new ways to improve its business through mobility and increase productivity. We’ve established a strong foundation with Good for Enterprise and now we’ll be able to work with An Post to pilot Good Dynamics and develop custom apps that transform specific areas of the post which directly impact the Irish public,” said Andy Jacques, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Good Technology.
