Workplace mobility

In the fast-paced world of modern business, agility and efficiency are paramount. One area where these qualities are increasingly crucial is workplace mobility for shift-workers. In the midst of this growth, Apple has become a top three vendor in the enterprise space and 79% of all enterprise activity on a mobile device is happening on iOS. As organizations navigate the complexities of remote work, shift-based operations and security concerns, the need for innovative solutions to optimize IT resources has never been greater.

The role of IT departments has transcended beyond mere support to become strategic enablers of productivity. The arsenal of tools they deliver to employees serves as the backbone for seamless operations across diverse shift-based roles, ranging from warehouse workers to nurses in hospitals, police services and transportation drivers.

Enterprises are now turning to cutting-edge device deployment strategies to revolutionize workplace mobility. By leveraging advanced technologies and streamlined processes, businesses can maximize utility, enhance security, and elevate the overall user experience. Let's explore two key components driving this transformation Apple devices:

1. Shared Devices for Shift Workers: Maximizing Utility

For organizations with shift-based operations, especially in fast-paced industries like healthcare, hospitality or manufacturing, deploying shared devices tailored to the number of employees present during each shift is a game-changer. This approach increases efficiency and cost-effectiveness by ensuring optimal resource utilization. Employees have access to the tools they need without an unnecessary number of devices, streamlining operations and boosting productivity. Enter iOS devices configured for Shared Device Mode and Shared iPad for Business.

With SOTI MobiControl, Shared Device Mode for iOS devices and Shared iPad for Business simplify device management within organizations or specific departments. By automatically assigning devices to users based on organizational roles, it ensures tailored access to necessary apps while maintaining stringent security protocols.

Imagine a hospital where nurses seamlessly transition between shifts, using apps that simplify workflows, maintain security and compliance, reduce cyber risks and improve user productivity. Shared Device Mode ensures that each nurse has access to the apps and information they need, quickly and effectively.

Furthermore, the added security features such as clearing app data and configuring passcode settings provide peace of mind for both employees and employers. Confidential information remains protected and sensitive data can be easily wiped clean when a device transitions from one user to the next.

In essence, Shared Device Mode for iOS devices and Shared iPad for Business are revolutionizing workplace mobility for shift workers, offering a seamless blend of accessibility, security and efficiency in the modern workplace.

2. Single Sign-On (SSO): Seamless User Experience

These days, employees use different apps for different tasks which can require them to remember multiple passwords and waste time logging into each app. Simplifying the login process is essential for enhancing user engagement and productivity. Single Sign-On (SSO) technology allows employees to access all necessary apps with a single login, eliminating the need to remember multiple credentials. This user experience reduces friction and empowers employees to focus on their tasks without interruption.

With iOS devices, extensible SSO profiles in SOTI MobiControl take this convenience to the next level. These profiles deliver an integrated login experience tailored specifically for iOS users, streamlining access to managed apps with seamless authentication.

Imagine an employee easily transitioning between various work-related apps on their iPhone, without ever having to re-enter their credentials. That's the power of SSO profiles – it simplifies the user experience and enhances security by centralizing authentication processes.

SOTI MobiControl SSO technology, combined with iOS devices, is revolutionizing the way employees interact with their digital work environment. By eliminating login barriers, it fosters greater engagement, productivity, and ultimately, success in today's fast-paced world.

Revolutionizing workplace mobility through optimized IT resource deployment for shift-workers is essential for modern businesses seeking to thrive in a rapidly evolving landscape. By embracing shared devices, SSO, robust security measures and innovative technology like SOTI MobiControl, organizations can unlock new levels of productivity, efficiency and security. As we continue to embrace the digital age, staying ahead of the curve with this transformation will be key to success in the years to come.
