Distributor announces “strategic alliance” with software maker that will see it offer SOTI’s products including flagship MobiControl solution
Westcoast Mobile has announced a strategic alliance with SOTI which will see the enterprise mobility management provider’s range of MobiControl device software offered to Westcoast’s UK reseller base.
MobiControl, which is SOTI’s flagship product, is a bring your own device (BYOD) software tool that allows enterprise customers to manage mobile devices remotely and securely. It is available on iOS, Android and Windows devices.
Westcoast head of mobile Darren Seward said the rolling partnership will strengthen the Theale-based distributor’s mobile offering, which currently includes the Apple iPhone.
“Companies of all sizes are now realising the importance of being able to secure data, enforce corporate policies and remotely support their devices through EMM solutions,” he added.
“We decided to partner with SOTI due to their channel-centric approach and the strength of their MobiControl solution to handle the most complex mobility management environments.”
The partnership means SOTI has now linked up with the majority of the large UK hardware distributors and follows similar agreements with Ingram Micro UK, Tech Data UK and Data Select.
SOTI has over 15,000 customers across the globe across retail, manufacturing, healthcare, government and several other industries.
SOTI European sales director Nassar Hussain said: “It’s an exciting time for the UK which is set to be a leader in the burgeoning EMM market in the coming years.
“Given our global reputation with millions of managed devices, we’re looking forward to a trailblazing start to what promises to be a highly scalable partnership with Westcoast in the UK.”
