Good Technology, which provides secure business services for a range of mobile devices, has announced that Sainsbury’s is adopting the Good for Enterprise solution. This will enable the retailer to provide its 150,000 UK employees with secure mobile access to corporate data.
Sainsbury’s reckons that over 60% of its employees currently own a smartphone, with many of them using personal mobile devices in the workplace to increase productivity. In future, management staff will be able to access corporate email on their own smartphone without compromising security.
Rob Fraser, IT Director at Sainsbury’s, said “Managing information quickly and efficiently is at the heart of any successful retailer, and Sainsbury’s is committed to providing its colleagues with the mobile solutions they need to enable them to provide great service to its customers. Access to the latest market data is a competitive differentiator in our space, and Good Technology provides us with the ability to reach and empower our colleagues in a secure way on their mobile device of choice. Meeting the diverse needs of our customers is no longer going to happen just from a remote office - it’s going to increasingly happen using mobile devices. Good Technology will give us the edge for success.”
