Efes Rus is a brewing company, one of the three major players on the Russian market, a subdivision of the international EFES Beer Group. Efes Rus’ assets include six breweries in Kaluga, Ufa, Kazan, Novosibirsk, Ulyanovsk and Vladivostok, as well as 4 malt houses. Company owns Kozel, Miller, Tri Bogatyrya, Redd’s, Efes, Stary Melnik, Zhigulyovskoe, Bely Medved and other popular beer brands.
For a while, over 3 000 EFES’ sales representatives have been using Windows Mobile devices to collect, store and organize product purchase orders. These devices were serviced by the support staff without any remote administration tools, so the data was at risk of loss or leakage.
Mobile Dimension had to offer a new streamlined mobile solution for administrating the accounts remotely in line with the corporate data security policies. Other requirements were to enhance the safety of IT infrastructure and availability of corporate services for mobile users.
We conducted an audit and selected SAP Afaria MDM solution. The solution was installed on the employees’ mobile devices enabling IT administrators to flexibly customize the policies of data security. By implementing the BYOD practice, the client significantly cut the expenditures on mobile devices purchase.
