HOLLY HUNT Picks BoxTone for New Mobile Strategy

BoxTone Furnishes High End Design Company With Automated Enterprise Mobility Management Solution, Powering Its BYOD and Corporate-Owned Device Deployments

COLUMBIA, MD--(Marketwire - Feb 6, 2012) - Empowering its workforce with a corporate mobile strategy, HOLLY HUNT, a premier high-end interior furnishing design and distribution company, implemented BoxTone's Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution to secure, manage, and support its enterprise-connected fleet of mobile devices and apps. By deploying the BoxTone EMM platform company-wide, HOLLY HUNT brought a "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) strategy to employees; enabling them to securely and reliably access to the corporate network from their personal iPhone, iPad, Android or BlackBerry mobile devices, as well as corporate-owned iPads and tablets that were currently being used by the warehouse and sales force.

When BlackBerry smartphones were introduced to the market, HOLLY HUNT issued corporate-owned devices to employees to promote productivity. More recently and with the advancement of mobile technologies, HOLLY HUNT employees started requesting the right to bring and use their own iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices and tablets and connect them to the corporate network.

"Our employees' requests for new enterprise-connected mobile devices sparked our interest to look at how we could implement a BYOD program into our corporate structure, while leveraging new mobile devices and their enterprise apps to bring additional advantages to our Company," said Neil Goodrich, director of Business Analytics and Technology at HOLLY HUNT. "We required a mobility management platform that would go beyond mobile device management; one that could support the full mobile device lifecycle while managing and securing mobile apps. BoxTone's Enterprise Mobility Management solution proved to be the ideal offering."

Recommended by Verizon Wireless, BoxTone's EMM platform was chosen because of simplicity of pricing, ease of deployment in HOLLY HUNT's virtualized environment, and the intuitive nature of the software. The BoxTone EMM platform has also helped HOLLY HUNT more efficiently manage a human resources employee stipend program for mobile devices, contributing to a five percent reduction in total telecom costs for the Company. In addition, BoxTone's direct integration into HOLLY HUNT's Active Directory IT policies and other core IT systems ensured that IT could consistently and remotely enforce policies on all BYOD and corporate devices.

"Our mission at BoxTone is to drive mobile innovation within companies like HOLLY HUNT," said Brian Reed, Chief Product Officer at BoxTone. "We want them to see mobility as a tool that successfully enhances their business. Leveraging BoxTone's experience, technology and industry best-practices, HOLLY HUNT is able to better serve their growing network of high-end interior designer customers, mobilizing their business safely, reliably and efficiently."

Through its best-practice approach, BoxTone's automated EMM solution empowers enterprise IT and Managed Services Providers (MSPs) to centrally manage the full mobile lifecycle (secure, deploy, monitor, enforce compliance, change update, support, retire) across all mobile users, devices, tablets and apps.
