LATEST INTELLIGENCE LATEST REGIONAL PROJECT UPDATE FRANCE Econocom is consolidating its partnership with Google in the field of mobility by becoming the first accredited ‘Android Zero-Touch Enrollment’ integrator in France. Via this zero-touch enrolment solution for corporate-owned mobile devices, Econocom offers simplicity and security to organisations that have chosen Android for their enterprise mobility strategy. With its zero-touch program, Google has successfully addressed the challenge of total user simplicity by allowing organisations to set up Android smartphones and tablets remotely. This is how it works: when users switch on their mobile device for the first time, it automatically connects to the company’s EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) system which sets up the right configuration profile. Being the first accredited French partner consolidates Econocom’s position as a leading integrator and an innovative player.
