The story

Kana Pipeline, Inc. is a leading underground wet utility pipeline construction company headquartered in Riverside, California, United States. Founded in 1984, the company has a dedicated team of highly skillful and expert individuals who offer timely and effective contracting services, all within a calculated budget. They offer their services across commercial, industrial, residential, and institutional entities. Their key services include installation of sewer, water, fire line, storm drain, and other structural systems for both public and private development units. With over 35 years of experience in structural development, the company ensures uninterrupted service delivery with utmost safety concerns.

Kana Pipeline, Inc., being a construction-based company, employs a number of on-field employees that render services remotely. Tracking the availability and work records of such employees turned out to be a hefty task for the management team at Kana Pipeline, Inc. So, they introduced an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system that would help them keep track of all the resources and company data from a single interface. They made use of iPhones and Android tablets and distributed them to the employees for efficient data storage and tracking purposes. To manage these devices effectively, the team decided to implement an MDM software.

Casamir Eastlake, the IT Admin at Kana Pipeline, Inc., looked for a number of MDM solutions in the market over the internet. They even tried an MDM solution in the past but later decided to migrate from the solution as it wasn’t stable enough to meet the company’s requirements. It also caused a few major issues which made the team look for an alternate solution. Casimir found Hexnode through research on the Google. He was quite impressed with what Hexnode offered by a mere trial experience. A bunch of device management functionalities at a reasonable price range was the prime attraction for the team.

“Hexnode seemed to be the one that allowed me to track all that I wanted and all for a very nice price.”
