Global Food Distributor Enhances Field Operations With Amtel Mobile Lifecycle Management Solution

Cheney Brothers Boosts Efficiency of Field Service and Logistics With Amtel MDM

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) - Amtel (, the leading provider of solutions for the mobile revolution, today announced that global food distributor Cheney Brothers has deployed Amtel's mobile lifecycle management solution to improve its ability to track and manage field sales and logistics teams who use iPhones, iPads, and Android mobile devices.

A broad line food distributor with 24/7 operations, Cheney Brothers is an early adopter of enterprise mobility solutions, driving service excellence and leadership in the food service industry. Because its customers rely on accurate and prompt deliveries, the company invests in technological systems to ensure that every order reaches customers on time and in optimal condition.

Using Amtel MDM, Cheney Brothers significantly increased the efficiency of its field sales and logistics teams. The company gained deeper control over its smart devices and location tracking capabilities which it needed for running deep analytics based on the locations of its sales staff and logistics team to help optimize fleet operations and maintain timely deliveries. The company also streamlined new user onboarding and email setup with Active Directory integration and Exchange ActiveSync provided by Amtel's Email Gateway Virtual Appliance.

"Having accurate location reporting helped us to see last known location, location history and daily reporting for all devices. The ability to setup and use over 40+ geo-fence restrictions for different users based on group or profile worked like a charm. As an administrator, I got the ability to push enterprise mobile apps and related updates easily to hundreds of devices, and the service portal was easy to use," said Daniel Midgett, IT Support Specialist at Cheney Brothers responsible for MDM.

"We are delighted to have Cheney Brothers, an innovative leader in its industry, as our customer. By choosing Amtel MDM, the company has gained a powerful GPS locator and tracker for fleet management, with complete mobile device security. This was a big step towards attaining visibility, insight, and controls that offer a competitive advantage in the food service distribution industry," said Pankaj Gupta, founder and CEO of Amtel.
