Steve Berry, director, Maxatec, is optimistic about the partnership.
The best feature of this mobile device management solution, according to Berry, is that it supports all operating systems, including Windows, Android or Apple (News - Alert) iOS, meaning IT needs just one solution to manage all kinds of devices in their network.

Our customers will find it easy to sell and deploy, and it only requires them to provide minimal training.”
