Colton Cauthen, the Project Engineer at Hanna Engineering distributed Android tablets to the employees for field related work. He wanted a solution that would help him lock the devices down to only certain applications remotely. The solution which he was already using for the company discontinued their services being offered. He quickly realized the need for a new Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution. After a thorough research on Google, Colton decided to go ahead with Hexnode over the other available MDMs mainly due to the simplicity and pricing factor.

“By implementing the kiosk, we know that the users are not parked somewhere playing Candy Crush or surfing the internet. So, I am sure productivity has increased.”
