The producer required a mobile device management solution that could automate app distribution; track vehicle location in real time; support driver and dispatch com- munication; assist drivers with tech issues; and, monitor movement of tablets in case of loss or theft. Absent a proper solution, CRMP envisioned the potential for enormous data overage charges. Management targeted tablets designed for multiple use, but did not want the devices to become an interference for drivers on the road or executing site duties. 42Gears offered location tracking, remote management, lock- down and remote support in a single package. CRMP chose SureLock and SureMDM for man- aging its tablet solution. "The ability to login to SureMDM and see what the driver sees on his tablet helped us resolve all issues instantly. This function is very useful when the driver is four or five hours away from the office," says CRMP Communications and Distribution Technol- ogy Manager Andrew Eger. "[With] 42Gears products, I can easily fix all issues remotely without jailbreaking the tablet, saving my time and resources. We utilize the NIX agent in over 115 of our trucks. I get more fea- tures and options for a fraction of the cost of the other vendors." — 42Gears Mobility Systems Inc., Fremont, Calif., 408/758-0205;
