The company’s travel app quickly became a frequently downloaded asset in the Apple App Store. But, in order to compete with established travel apps in the industry, the company needed to attract and retain top talent — especially workers with coding experience.
Unfortunately for this startup, Montreal is home to several large tech companies that dominate the job market. This particular company realized it needed to offer a modern work environment with high-performing devices. To appeal to people with coding experience, it decided Apple devices were the best choice.
Partnering with the experts
In the early days, the business originally implemented a Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) program where employees got to select their company-provided devices for work-related tasks. However, managing many different devices proved challenging for the internal IT team and created security risks.
Company-owned devices became the new norm, but the IT team had trouble keeping up with the growing workforce and number of devices that needed to be configured to company standards. When the business decided to open a new location but didn’t expand its IT staff, the process of procuring and deploying devices turned slow and inefficient.
The growing company needed a partner to help streamline the process and offer customized support.
Optimizing the deployment process
Insight has long-lasting partnerships with industry-leading technology brands and deep expertise to help our clients get the most out of their IT assets. Our relationship with and vast knowledge about Apple and its products positions us to help clients improve their device management.
When our Supply Chain Optimization team visited the client and examined its existing challenges, we immediately suggested implementing Apple Business Manager. The secure management platform makes it easy to automate deployment, delegate admin privileges and manage app licenses for every Apple device in the company.
We helped the client set up Apple Business Manager and integrate it with a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution so the company’s IT team could quickly and seamlessly manage Apple products.
