Customer Challenges

The complexity of mobile transformation calls for SmartMobile programs that can address critical challenges that your organization faces today, such as:

  • Deployment logistics: Handling everything that goes into configuring, provisioning, preparing, securing, kitting, packaging, shipping, and confirming receipt of thousands of devices can be overwhelming for many businesses.
  • Rapid obsolescence: Mobile technology is evolving at a dizzying pace. Future-proofing is a must, as businesses want a consistent line of sight into the product lifecycle and the ability to upgrade devices in a timely manner.
  • Outdated legacy solutions: Many organizations are looking to transition from outdated systems or manual/paper-based platforms to Apple iOS and macOS solutions. Challenges can arise when attempting to integrate the new technology into existing systems.
  • iOS/mobile expertise: Businesses often struggle to recruit and retain professionals with the skills, certifications, and experience to rewrite legacy applications to leverage the iOS platform and manage the full range of iOS/mobile devices.
  • Responsive support: Supporting a large number of devices, apps, and users in the field can be overwhelming for the typical IT support team to handle. In order to keep your employees up and running, they need access to specialized, comprehensive, Day-2 support. This may require an outsourced solution.

Customer Case Study

Southwest Airlines was struggling to meet federal regulations requiring crew members to carry up-to-date crew manuals. Updating the paper manuals was a time-consuming and complicated process, and there was no way to know which of the airline's personnel were in compliance. A digital solution was clearly in order, and mobile technology would need to play a role.

Company leadership recognized that Stratix had the experience, knowledge and warehouse space to help them transition to a tablet-based solution for their flight attendants and pilots. We subsequently planned and executed the rollout of 18,000 iPad units in less than 60 days and continue to provide ongoing support.
