selected SOTI's award-winning MDM solution, MobiControl, to manage and support Motorola MC75 devices used by their mobile
workforce. MobiControl's centralized remote control and troubleshooting

force by hundreds of devices, with plans to further increase

reduction in downtime with a simplified and cost-effective process,
keeping devices in the field and working properly. We realize that
MobiControl has even more to offer us, not only in terms of baseline
features and functionality, but also in terms of further automating the
management of our devices, ensuring they are secure at all times. We
are expanding the size of our mobile deployments to further leverage
the success of our mobility strategy."
