Samsung Extends Enterprise Thought Leadership Position with the Launch of Samsung Solutions Exchange

September  25, 2013

Enterprise customers can now accelerate their adoption of a mobile-first philosophy

 

Dallas, TX – Mobile technology is a mainstay for modern business and the benefits of a mobile workforce are now widely accepted by organizations of every size. In fact, business spending on mobile devices is expected to overtake spending on fixed devices in 2014. To help businesses get the most out of their investments in mobility, Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (Samsung Mobile) today launches the Samsung Solution Exchange™, a strategic engagement model that delivers a portfolio of holistic mobility solutions designed to address real world business challenges.

 

Building upon the success of Samsung for Enterprise (SAFE™) and the confidence Samsung Mobile has established with IT managers, the Solutions Exchange extends Samsung Mobile’s enterprise focus to address the needs of line of business owners.

 

The Samsung Solutions Exchange delivers a range of offerings from third party providers that increase productivity and ROI, including sales and management applications, mobile device management solutions, cloud services, collaboration tools and security solutions – all designed to make it easier for enterprises to succeed in the new era of mobile business with our robust suite of SAFE devices.

 

“The market is quickly shifting to a mobile-first philosophy where line of business owners are driving innovation by deploying specialized business applications on widely-available smartphones and tablets,” said Timothy Wagner, Vice President and General Manager of Samsung Mobile’s Enterprise Business Unit. “We are launching the Samsung Solutions Exchange as a way to help our end customers accelerate their business success, realizing the full value of our diverse portfolio of highly desirable SAFE devices. This engagement model is truly an industry first, aimed at achieving shared value across our rapidly growing ecosystem of enterprise customers, sales channels and alliances.”

 

Integrated Solutions Delivered

The Samsung Solutions Exchange harnesses an ecosystem of leading third party mobility companies, including developers, MDM providers and sales channels, to systematically identify unique customer requirements and rapidly deliver end-to-end solutions. This proactive development of scalable products allows businesses to harness the value of mobile technology faster and enjoy the benefits sooner.

 

To alleviate the pain points and barriers third parties usually face when working with device manufacturers, Samsung releases its device SDK and with it, its 1,000£« enterprise APIs, to members of the Samsung Solution Exchange. This allows technology providers to differentiate and optimize their solutions by leveraging unique features of Samsung Mobile SAFE devices, such as the S Pen, IR blaster, Air View, Air Gesture, Advanced Multi Window, Screen Mirroring and NFC. In turn, Exchange solutions can take a multi-application, out-of-the-box smartphone or tablet and transform it into a purpose-driven business tool for a specific industry. 

 

The result is greater functionality for end users on the job and increased value for companies using SAFE devices.

 

At launch, the Exchange offers a curated portfolio of solutions, including but not limited to the following:

 

- Holistic vertical solutions for industries including healthcare, financial services, government, transportation, retail and education

- Differentiated mobile professional solutions that address specific line of business challenges both in and out of the office

- A range of mobile workforce solutions designed to help sales and service organizations address challenges of mobile workforce management

 

SAFE and Secure for Business

Samsung Mobile’s SAFE device portfolio provides the foundation for solutions developed by members of the Exchange and offers a diverse range of form factors across a variety of price points on all major U.S. carriers.

 

The Galaxy Note™ 3 and Galaxy Note™ 10.1 – 2014 Edition are the newest additions to the suite of SAFE smartphones and tablets. A favorite among business customers, the Galaxy Note category now delivers even more enterprise-grade productivity through an enhanced S Pen experience and advanced multitasking features.

 

While the demand for solutions grows rapidly, the need for secure yet desirable devices remains top priority for enterprises. SAFE provides peace of mind for corporate IT departments by arming devices with features that keep company data secure and delivers security and compliance for even the most regulated industries through Samsung Knox.

 

Simplicity in Solutions 

When exploring mobility solutions, line of business owners often encounter a fragmented marketplace offering choices from countless sources. The Samsung Solutions Exchange introduces a more intuitive and differentiated approach, making it easier for customers to research, select and implement the best mobile solutions for their business needs.

 

The Samsung Solutions Exchange can be accessed through an easy-to-navigate web portal that guides customers through a suite of third party mobility solutions across industry verticals and categories that are ready to deploy. This tool streamlines the process of identifying holistic mobility solutions and simplifies the selection process by offering a range of options that help businesses get the most out of their investment in mobile technology.
