Users can pay and park in Blue Zone parking areas by simply entering the city, the amount of time needed and license plate number in the application.
Areatec® provides Android mobile devices (Samsung phones) to its field workforce to verify parking tickets. Vehicle owners can check for available parking spaces and book a space for a specific time using the parking application, Digipare.
Areatec® distributed hundreds of devices to streamline its field operations. However, in order to simplify device configuration and management and ease management for the IT department, Areatec required a comprehensive mobile device management solution.
Areatec® deployed 42Gears UEM solution to manage all their endpoints. The following functionalities proved to be extremely useful:
Install and update application: This feature enables the company to easily configure devices and reduces the time required for such tasks considerably
Telecom Expense Management: Telecom management feature helps Areatec monitor data usage and save costs on mobile data
Kiosk mode: This ensures that frontline workers have access to critical business applications only
Remote Support: This feature provides real-time access to the end-users device screen for troubleshooting technical problems
