Vienna, September 24, 2012 – Kapsch BusinessCom intensifies its cooperation with Apple. As an Apple Authorized System Integrator (AASI) with the highest certification level, Kapsch offers solutions that will soon allow even the newest models such as the iPhone 5 to meet their full potential within the framework of more secure and fully integrated mobility concepts.
"We have been a provider of ICT solutions on the market for many years. Apple’s iPhone and iPad have had a lasting effect on our business," says the COO of Kapsch BusinessCom, Jochen Borenich, MBA. "The two Apple devices are no longer attractive only to private consumers; they are also being used much more in the business environment and are setting new standards in the area of mobile computing. Never before has interest in mobile access to company data and applications been so high." A full and, above all, secure integration of iPhones and iPads or other devices with Apple operating systems into the IT infrastructure of companies means much more than just developing or adapting an app. For this reason, Kapsch entered into a partnership with Apple in March of this year and has now obtained the highest certification level as an Apple Authorized System Integrator (AASI). Kapsch works with Apple to develop solutions that offer maximum security and efficiency as well as an ideal user experience – all tailored to the specific needs of the customer.
Fritz Holter GmbH relies on iPad sales solution from Kapsch
As a major retailer and service partner in the areas of sanitary, heating, environment, control, ventilation and swimming pool technology, the Upper Austrian family company has a broad product portfolio and an equally diverse customer structure. To further improve the services of its field sales, Holter implemented the vision of an Apple iPad-based sales solution in cooperation with Kapsch. Not only does this innovative solution meets the needs of Holter employees, it also satisfies the requirements with regard to IT security and IT administration. The solution, which now allows the entire Holter product catalog to be presented to customers online, was created in just four weeks time. As a next step, Holter is planning to integrate the Avaya collaboration solution into the Apple sales solution. Here again, Kapsch is at the company’s side as an experienced solution integrator.
As an integral component of the solution, Kapsch implemented a mobile device management system that allows all devices to be managed centrally. The solution is integrated into the IT infrastructure of Holter and satisfies the security guidelines of the company in every respect. "Kapsch has succeeded in bringing two aspects together: On the one hand, we can now benefit from the user experience of the iPad for product presentations; while on the other, we have a solution that is optimally and securely embedded in our existing processes and systems," says Markus Hiegelsberger, CIO of Fritz Holter GmbH.
