Mall of America switches from BlackBerry to Nokia Lumia 920
(Thomson Reuters ONE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge)
Espoo, Finland - Mall of America, the United States' largest retail and
entertainment complex, is switching from BlackBerry to the Nokia Lumia 920
because of the tight integration with Microsoft services and built-in Microsoft
Office suite, offering Mall of America management team members greater
productivity and flexibility in a very dynamic workplace.
The Nokia Lumia 920 is built on the Microsoft Windows Phone 8 platform, which
allows out-of-the-box access to Microsoft apps and services, including Outlook,
Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and SkyDrive, all brought to life on the
smartphone's large PureMotion HD+ super sensitive touch screen. These apps
integrate with the mall's existing Microsoft services, enabling Mall of America
management team members to review and edit Outlook emails and Microsoft Office
documents on their smartphones, wherever they happen to be.
"Switching to the Nokia Lumia 920 has increased productivity for key team
members. The combination of a great smartphone with built-in Microsoft Office
suite enables our team to work collaboratively, and SkyDrive ensures we can back
up and access our work, wherever we are and whenever we want," says Janette
Smrcka, I.T. Director at Mall of America.
"With more than 400 events every year, from music acts to celebrity book
signings, the ability to capture, edit and share images from the Nokia Lumia
920's PureView camera enables team members to provide instant high-quality
imagery and real time updates to social media fans and our business customers.
When you combine this with all of the Windows Phone 8 platform's business
capabilities, at a price we can afford, we've got a device we're really proud to
use," concludes Janette.
The Nokia Lumia 920's Live Tiles offer intelligent, interactive apps, showing
the latest emails, news, documents and people updates as they happen, so that at
one touch of a tile, management team members can reach key people, stay
organized and collaborate with colleagues. The People Hub in Windows Phone 8
further helps organize teams, allowing staff to set-up groups, work together
innovatively, and stay in touch with co-workers across text, Facebook, Twitter,
instant messaging and email.
"Mall of America is a great example of how all the business features of the
Nokia Lumia 920, combined with its social capabilities, can make a great work
device," said Stephanie Mosticchio, enterprise sales manager for North America
at Nokia. "The Windows Phone 8 platform has meant the company's employees have
been able to transition quickly, due to its built-in and familiar Microsoft
Outlook and Office Mobile applications. From the intuitive integration with
Microsoft services, to Live Tiles and People Hub making it easy to stay close to
what matters, all wrapped in the beautiful polycarbonate body of the Nokia Lumia
920, it offers everything a mobile workforce could ask for."
