Sektor is pushing further into the enterprise mobility management (EMM) space across key markets in Asia Pacific, following a partnership with EMM firm SOTI. The partnership will span  Australia and New Zealand, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam markets.

Sektor New Zealand managing director Andre van Duiven says SOTI's solutions will play a key part in Sektor's mobility portfolio as it pads out its partner solutions.

“Sektor not only provides the mobile devices, but the technology to manage, track and secure them. It's another example of our commitment to being a true end-to-end solution provider for our partners.

SOTI's VP sales APAC, Michael Dyson says SOTI is expanding its presence in two key areas: emergency healthcare, and retail - specifically point of sale (POS).

Dyson says, “Sektor shares our vision for growth within these industries and played an important role in helping us win a contract with St John New Zealand's ambulance service. This was a significant breakthrough for us and showed us the importance of Sektor's relationships and expertise within our key markets.

Sektor will add SOTI MobiControl, the SOTI EMM solution, to its portfolio. SOTI has deployed MobiControl with organisations including Australia Post, Coles and Kmart.

“Gone are the days when a mobile device was deployed in the field without the support, infrastructure and expertise to manage that device,” explains Dyson.

“Our customers rely on SOTI to facilitate the rapid deployment of business-critical mobile devices, as well as update operating systems and applications on Android, Windows, iOS and Linux. Customers place a huge importance on security, remote device support and device location tracking to help them drive better efficiencies throughout their organisation and realise greater cost savings.

SOTI South India VP of operations Joseph Samuel says that the company has had a long term vision to develop a strong presence in South India.

“Our new office, set in a very convenient location with modern facilities, aims to provide an excellent working atmosphere. Those who work with us will not only be part of a global team, but they will also get the rare opportunity to work on cutting-edge research projects.
