Mobile data collection specialist Codegate has developed mobilesafeguard, an intelligent device management tool that enables IT Managers to deploy, update and manage even the largest mobile solution. Accessed through a dedicated web portal, the service is available 24/7 from any location in the office, at home or in the field.
The new solution is based upon the mobilesafeguard Client - a background programme that runs on a mobile device. This periodically transmits status information to the central mobilesafeguard Database. The operation is completely automated and invisible to the user. Data for each mobile device is built up over its operational life and the database information can be accessed at any time via the mobilesafeguard web portal.
Key elements of this solution include a Device Lock Down Utility (which prohibits unauthorised access); Asset Management; Device Statistics; Active Monitor; Application Manager; Vehicle Tracking & Telematics; Simple Messaging and Remote Application Deployment and Troubleshooting.
Codegate provides a range of mobile devices suitable for mobilesafeguard such as the world-renowned Dolphin family of mobile computers from Hand Held Products. The latest models, the Dolphin 7900 and the Dolphin 9500, are powerful mobile computers packed with the latest imaging and wireless technologies and theyre ideal for field service personnel and robust mobile applications.
Adam Dykman, Codegates Managing Director, comments: Mobilesafeguard does exactly what it says it safeguards mobile solutions. It provides powerful device management tools and has a cost-reducing messaging service in addition to device statistic logging and comprehensive reporting capabilities.
