AppTec works with Samsung to deliver Mobility Management Solution in the retail industry Mobile devices are taking the retail industry by the storm! Retailers are increasingly embracing mobile services and applications to better engage with customers on the showroom floor and improve customer experience. Leading this trend, AppTec and Samsung worked together to bring an innovative solution for our enterprise customer.
AppTec, a SEAP Silver Partner, develops in-house and cloud-based mobile management solutions to manage application, configurations and ensure security of company data on smart phones and tablets. On top of their existing solution, AppTec integrated the Samsung KNOX APIs to provide extensive features for the best performance in a retail environment.
To stay ahead of the market, Dosenbach-Ochsner AG, a wholesale and retail distributor of sports footwear was looking for a kiosk solution to run advertisements and provide product information on a tablet.
Their main concern was device security, so that local users couldn´t jump out from their predefined URL and open unauthorized web pages. In addition, Dosenbach-Ochsner also addressed the need to automatically delete contents of data within a certain time interval.
After review of these requests, AppTec was able to develop an URL based Kiosk Mode with the KNOX Standard SDK – Kiosk API´s and provide extended features such as link jump control to prevent jump out from URL via hyperlink.
The enhanced solution was tested on Samsung´s sample devices before delivery. With the implementation of AppTec´s solution, Dosenbach-Ochsner is now able to remotely and securely manages their advertisements in retail stores while reducing the cost of their IT field services.
