Monday 6th September 2010 – Cork, Ireland – FancyFon, a pioneer in mobile device management solutions that empower organizations to securely and centrally manage multiple smartphones over the air, today announced that Vodafone Hungary has selected FancyFon’s award-winning technology, FAMOC(TM), to provide mobile device lifecycle management, both as a hosted and behind-the-firewall solution, for its business customers.
Founded in 1999, and with over 2.6 million subscribers, Vodafone Hungary required a centrally managed and secure mobile device management solution to support the evolving demands of its business customers. Vodafone Hungary issued an international tender for such a solution, and FAMOC was selected over and above competing US and European-based independent software vendors.
As a result, Vodafone Hungary now offers mobile device management to its business customers; from SMBs to large enterprises and government organizations. In addition, FAMOC will enable Vodafone Hungary to differentiate itself from its regional competitors, by offering its business customers with device management functionality and capabilities, under aggressively competitive commercial terms.
Dr. Gabor Piller, Director of Vodafone Hungary’s Enterprise Business Unit, commented; “As an early adopter of ground-breaking technology, Vodafone Hungary wanted to be the first to offer its customers mobile device management functionality, and after researching the various solutions on the market, we decided that FancyFon was by far the best.”
Dietmar Fuchs, COO at FancyFon added; “As increasing numbers of businesses demand advanced levels of support for their fleet of smartphones, service providers must respond to the market by offering a centralized mobile device management solution. FancyFon is perfectly placed to provide carriers with a market-leading platform that enables them to cater to this demand, and allows service providers to offer device management to their customer base at an attractive price point.”
FAMOC has delivered a mobile device lifecycle management solution to Vodafone Hungary, enabling the carrier to offer each of its business customers a centrally managed platform from which to control its entire fleet of corporate smartphones, based on disparate mobile platforms, in real time, over the air. This will provide Vodafone Hungary’s business customers with the following benefits:
– Improved business productivity and superior employee efficiency
– Seamless roll out of new and improved services, over the air
– Reduced administrative complexity and minimized support and management costs
– Increased privacy and data security to address compliance issues and corporate policy
Consequently, Vodafone Hungary is set to derive significant benefit from the FAMOC solution, including increased levels of customer satisfaction and retention. Vodafone will also profit from FAMOC’s unprecedented ability to scale, to support any number of business customers, regardless of the size or disparity of the smartphone fleet. Finally, FAMOC will ensure that Vodafone continues to deliver new, innovative solutions to their regional market, combined with a superior level of service.
