The logistics industry has seen a growing usage of mobile devices in managing supply chains and keeping track of freight. However, the associated increase in productivity, reduced costs and better customer service rises complexity, potential data risks and subsequent compliance disarray. Hexnode MDM addresses all these security risks that are possessed by the mobile devices in the logistics industry.
Zero-Touch Enrollment and Apple Business Manager can configure and enroll Android and Apple devices in MDM during device set up. Knox Mobile Enrollment, Android Enterprise Recommended, G Suite and other conventional methods of enrollment are also available.
Mobile phones or tablets can be converted to Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) by putting them in kiosk mode. An ELD app can be made to work in forefront and the device can always be kept on. Hexnode Kiosk Messenger can be used to send messages from the MDM console.
The Geofencing feature in Hexnode MDM let companies create a virtual fence over restricted areas so that upon entering or exiting the fenced region, the device will go out of compliance and the associated policy will be enforced on the device automatically.
The Mobile Data Management feature will help the companies to set limits to mobile and Wi-Fi data usage on the deployed devices. App-based mobile data usage limit can be specified in the policy. Hexnode also allows restricting mobile data or wi-fi after reaching the limit.
Delivery based paperwork can be sent as a Word or PDF file to the deployed devices directly from Hexnode MDM. The File Management feature enables distributing and deleting any type of files regardless the size of them.
Phones and tablets can be locked down to one or more apps and websites using the kiosk mode. Kiosk mode enables the employees to work in a distraction-free environment. The threats towards the devices from unsafe browsing can also be reduced.
Applications required for the work can be distributed to the devices as a group or catalog or as single app. Android Enterprise Recommended integration in Hexnode MDM allows companies to set up an enterprise app store.
The remote control and remote view feature will allow IT admins to view the device screen from the Hexnode MDM portal. This will enable the IT team to provide remote assistance for device troubleshooting in real time.
