bigtincan Appoints BYOD & Enterprise Mobility Expert Alan Giles

Specialist in Development of New Territories Facilitates Distributorship With NetXactics to Drive bigtincan Expansion Into UK and African Markets

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 25, 2013) - bigtincan, the 'mobile first' company that's revolutionizing productivity for mobile devices through its innovative technology, announced today that Alan Giles has joined the company as Country Manager UK & Africa. Giles brings more than two decades of experience in and around enterprise mobility, having worked for operators, handset manufacturers and solution providers in the space. He will be responsible for opening new territories and verticals for bigtincan in the UK and African markets.

"Having specialized in business development for MDM companies such as Excitor and Fiberlink, as well as being principal of a thriving enterprise mobility consultancy, Giles is a key addition to our team," says Patrick Welch, President & COO of bigtincan. "He has an impressive knowledge of the challenges faced by companies trying to leverage new mobile technologies to gain competitive advantages. As such, he is perfectly positioned to facilitate the expansion of our footprint in the UK and European markets."

"One of the things that attracted me to bigtincan the most is that their product line offers true enablement in a BYOD world, taking into account the needs of the user as well as the IT team," says Giles. "The bigtincan experience is fresh, intuitive and exciting for those that try it for the first time. It is not an IT solution built for geeks, it is a user solution built for the benefit of users." Giles feels bigtincan is an industry standout in the UK and African markets because they've addressed the fact that enterprise mobility drives productivity only when content is managed properly -- focusing on control of data, not devices.

As first order of business, Giles has secured a distributorship arrangement for bigtincan with NetXactics, one of the most established distributors in Africa. "I have worked with NetXactics in the past -- they deliver what they say they will, are self-sufficient and regarded as experts in enterprise mobility within the South African market," shares Giles. "NetXactics has a very strong presence in Finance, Public Sector, Health Care and Oil & Gas markets. I see each of these as key verticals for bigtincan to explore."

NetXactics is pleased to represent and grow the bigtincan product range on the African continent," says Brett Myroff, NetXactics CEO. "We believe bigtincan operates in a technology arena that represents huge current growth and outstanding future potential."

Giles and Myroff will represent bigtincan and NetXactics at InfoSecurity Europe in London, April 23-25 -- sharing news of their partnership in person with Information Security professionals from across Europe.
