iPass has announced that it has signed up a range of new partners in both the UK and Germany. In the UK, iPass has signed Bridgeway Security Solutions, an IT security reseller of next-generation IT security tools, Olive Communications, provider of communications integration solutions across voice, data, mobility & applications, and Specialist Computer Centres (SCC), one of the largest technology solutions providers in the country.
“As mobile working becomes an increasingly common practice, enterprises need reliable, cost effective connectivity to enable their workers to be productive when they travel,” said Guy Hodges, Public Sector Sales Director, SCC. “We are helping many of our customers to become more efficient and effective with large scale enterprise mobility projects, and by partnering with iPass we can ensure their employees have access to low cost, highly secure Wi-Fi across the globe.”
Jason Holloway, CEO, Bridgeway Security Systems, said: “We’re pleased to partner with iPass in improving our customer’s mobility projects. We’ve found that whether for an international travelling executive for a well-known engineering company, or for a community healthcare worker from an NHS organisation, many of our customers share a need for low-latency, high-bandwidth and cost-effective internet connectivity – wherever they are, and without any uncertain telephony charges. In short, iPass helps our customers deliver measurable improvements in their workforce agility.”
Paul Butler, Commercial Director, Olive Communications, said: “Olive has a very strong Enterprise Mobility offering for UK based organisations working both domestically, and abroad. Our customers want solutions to the challenges of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and mobility, and so strategic partnerships are central to the Olive proposition. With a strong network, software and hardware partners, iPass has added a valuable string to our bow, allowing us to use Wi-Fi as a differentiator in a competitive marketplace. We are delighted to offer our enterprise customers access to the world’s largest commercial Wi-Fi network through iPass Open Mobile, helping them solve challenges around connectivity and cost.”
Rene Hendrikse, VP EMEA, iPass said, “BYOD is becoming more common and for many enterprise users, the question is no longer ‘what device can I use?’ but, ‘how can I connect and work effectively wherever I am?’ iPass Open Mobile gives mobile workers access to the world’s largest commercial network of Wi-Fi hotspots, eliminating worry about bill shock and providing users with consistent and secure network access, which allows them to work productively wherever they are. We are delighted to be working with such a variety of value-add resellers to enable more mobile workers with access to cost effective global wireless connectivity.”
