Nokia Mobile has been quite loud about its achievements in the Enterprise market. In a new enterprise deal with Accon avm, HMD Global sold 1100 Nokia 7.2 smartphones. Let us see the backstory behind this deal.
Accon avm is known for providing general business and consulting services, including financial planning and advice, and employer services as well throughout the Netherlands. At the start of 2020, Accon avm came up with a plan to renew its workplace smartphone devices and merge their fixed-line and mobile communications.
For purchasing new workplace devices, Accon avm was looking out for secure, cost-effective, high-quality, and enterprise-class smartphones, since their employees handle the sensitive business and financial data of their customers. Considering all these things, Accon avm’s IT partner, Benk Groep advised them to go ahead with the Nokia 7.2.
Currently, 17 Nokia smartphones are verified under the Android Enterprise Recommended (AER) program. The AER program mandates the manufacturers to offer zero-touch enrollment, so that there is no need of manual set-up of each device. As soon as Accon avm switched on the devices, all the company apps and settings were installed and enabled by the device itself, and all the 1100 Nokia 7.2 devices were under the company’s management.
The AER program requires only one major Android upgrade, but HMD Global promises two major OS upgrades, thus increasing the lifetime of the device. HMD Global received a positive feedback from Maurice Kutzer, Project Manager, Accon avm. He said,
“We are very positive about our new communications infrastructure and the Nokia 7.2 devices,”
The enterprise deals for HMD Global seems to be working well. However, there is also the consumer market. Can HMD Global do well this time with its new lineup, which includes the Nokia 5310, Nokia 1.3, Nokia 5.3, and Nokia 8.3 5G in the consumer market?
