The story

mSale AS distributes the best gift card kiosks across Norway, Denmark, and Sweden. They have gathered substantial knowledge in payment solutions, security and cutting-edge technology and have incorporated them to deliver quality gift card kiosks.

They offer the best in the market standard desktop and standalone kiosks, and interactive kiosk tables. They make sure to deliver the best kiosk solutions to their customers for effective gift card sale.

The secure processing and implementation of the kiosk solutions was a major concern for the managing team at mSale AS. They supplied interactive table kiosks that contain embedded Android devices on them to restaurants and cafes. These kiosk systems were primarily used for displaying menus and placing customer orders. The kiosk tables were also equipped with games and news for leisure-time entertainment. Managing the kiosk tables and utilizing them effectively became a troublesome task for the team. It was then that they started looking for an MDM solution for effectively managing their kiosk devices.

Kjetil Andre Liknes, the Chief Technology Officer at mSale AS, checked out multiple MDM solutions in the market but none seemed to please him the way Hexnode did. The primary requirement he had in mind was a complete kiosk solution that could manage the Android devices effectively with minimum labor. Hexnode rightly served and fulfilled his requirements. The easy and straight-forward implementation was the major attraction that impressed the team. After the initial trial process, Kjetil Andre was convinced to move forward with Hexnode.

“The entire process from the interface, the management, the web, and the way it works was impressive.”

Hexnode’s kiosk lockdown solution was the primary feature Kjetil Andre used to manage their corporate Android devices. Locking the devices into kiosk mode ensured that the devices are safe and are utilized for the intended purpose. The kiosk solution from Hexnode allows the admin to lock the devices in to a single or multiple application as per the requirement. Locking the devices to specific applications allows the user to access only those apps and blocks all other applications from the interface. The admin can also selectively manipulate other device settings after locking the devices in kiosk mode thus ensuring additional security for the devices.

“Hexnode was the solution that had the best and most complete kiosk mode.”

Implementing Hexnode on to the devices greatly helped Kjetil to remotely control them without being physically available at the specific location. With Hexnode’s remote control functionality, the admin could view and fix any concerns remotely thus saving a lot of productive time and effort. Once the required permissions are rendered and the remote-control functionality is active, the admin could view the device’s screen from a distant location and address the issue effortlessly. Remote Control functionality is definitely one of the favorite features for the team at mSale.

“It definitely reduced the workload because now all we have to do is make sure our equipment is just set up with Hexnode...I don't have to do anything else.”
