Australian law firm implements Good Tech's solution

The deployment follows a successful trial of GFE at the law firm, where the IT department tested the levels of control possible with the solution over corporate data and applications.

Slater and Gordon Lawyers, an Australian law firm, has deployed Good Technology's Good for Enterprise (GFE) to support the firm’s corporate and BYOD smartphones and tablets, replacing an existing Microsoft ActiveSync application.

The deployment follows a successful trial of GFE at the law firm, where the IT department tested the levels of control possible with the solution over corporate data and applications.

“As more employees wanted to use their own smartphones, ActiveSync was no longer a viable solution for us,” explained Eric Yew, infrastructure manager at the law firm.

“For example, our staff did not want the IT department imposing device-wide logins and policy on their own phones and impeding access to their personal applications."

“Good’s secure container approach means that corporate and personal information is strictly separated on the device, which is an important distinction from an employee perspective when they are supplying their own phone,” continued Yew.

“We also liked the fact that GFE offers multi-platform support.”

Founded in 1935, Slater and Gordon specialises in insurance claims, commercial, family and asbestos-related law.

“GFE is a very cost effective on-ramp for organisations either beginning or in the early stage of their mobile strategy, or what we call the ‘Run’ phase,” said Gavin Jones, VP Sales and GM A/NZ at Good Technology. “From there, organisations will typically move to the ‘Grow’ part of their mobile journey, which is mainly about enhanced productivity.

“The third and final stage of the mobile journey, and one that we are very excited about partnering with all our clients on, is the ‘Transform’ phase. This is where organisations are re-engineering business processes, or creating entirely new processes, by leveraging the power of mobility.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
