The story

Everybody knows that when it comes to real estate only three things matter: location, location and location! That’s what led Lovelyn Beltran (the IT admin/sales executive of Kensington Exclusive Properties) to Hexnode MDM. Though Hexnode has nothing to do with real estate, it has everything to do with the corporate devices. Hexnode has a very elaborate location tracking feature with reports and location history and periodic and instantaneous location scanning functionalities.

Kensington has deployed iPhones with company SIM to employees in different departments like sales, retails etc where the people will be out of the office and traveling in and out of the country. Since the devices were moving all the time the company needed to monitor and manage them remotely. The main requirements were the ability to locate the employees and deploy apps to the devices. Hexnode not only satisfied their requirements but delivered a simple and intuitive solution.

Kensington wanted to…

  • Deploy apps to the iPhones of the employees
  • Locate the field employees
  • Obtain location information
  • Monitor and manage the corporate deployed devices

Hexnode in the scene

The field employees who are the real estate agents have company deployed iPhones. This didn’t stop the IT department from installing required apps to the devices. Hexnode MDM made it possible for the admin to remotely deploy apps to the devices despite their location.

The devices which were enrolled in Hexnode MDM could be tracked to find if the field staffs are where they are supposed to be. Information like current location, location history and location report is available in the console. Most of the MDMs require the app to run in the background to fetch the location. But Hexnode MDM can fetch location even if the app is killed when there is a significant change in the location.

Since the devices are the property of the company and the employees use company provided SIM cards, the device inventory needs to be monitored and managed regularly. Periodic and instantaneous scanning, compliance alerts etc helps keep the devices in check all the time.

In a nutshell

As a real estate company, Kensington has a lot of field employees who are traveling all the time. The company needed a solution to monitor the device and users. The location tracking feature from Hexnode MDM made it possible for Kensington to monitor the location of the field employees. Furthermore, the admin could push applications and updates to the devices. Hexnode MDM provided the complete device management solution to Kensington to manage their device fleet.
