Rainer Röckle , Managing Director of anyplace IT, goes into the details of the challenges: "On the one hand, we had to find a suitable solution for the requirements of the specialist departments and, on the other hand, provide the necessary apps via MobileIron so that the data could be further processed in the backend. Depending on the department, very different configurations had to be provided because the requirements differed greatly. The final solution was then implemented within days."

MobileIron made us feel good from the beginning. The administration interface is clear and easy to understand, but the functionality is still comprehensive, "says Christian Jösch.
