Federated Rapidly Deploys New Mobile Devices with Wavelink’s Avalanche Remote Control

SALT LAKE CITY – October 4, 2012 – Wavelink, a division of LANDesk Software, today announced that the company has been working with Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL), the largest co-operative wholesaler in Canada, to assist with a refresh of its mobile device lineup with a new arsenal of mobile computers managed by Wavelink Avalanche and Avalanche Remote Control.

Avalanche Remote Control, a mobile help desk solution that allows customers to support devices in the field remotely, enabled FCL to deploy 245 Psion Omnii mobile computers in four warehouse locations in just three weeks. This was five weeks less than estimated for the project’s completion. Previous estimates were based on FCL’s prior experiences, which often resulted in lengthy projects due to travel time and troubleshooting.

FCL, a co-operative wholesaler with sales of $8.2 billion in 2011, provides centralized wholesaling, manufacturing and administrative services to 235 co-op stores across Western Canada. An existing customer of Wavelink’s Terminal Emulation and Avalanche, the company’s mobile device management product, FCL was looking for an integrated way to manage devices remotely and to quickly deploy new devices.

“We already knew about the day-to-day benefits of Wavelink’s Terminal Emulation and Wavelink Avalanche,” said Kent Kostuk, industrial engineering manager for FCL. “But we were still amazed at how quickly it enabled us to roll-out new devices to our warehouses.”

FCL had not completed an equipment refresh in a decade and the company’s industrial engineering team knew that expectations would be high. The FCL team’s goal was to make the roll-out as quick, painless, and inexpensive as possible.

“Avalanche Remote Control accelerated our implementation and reduced our costs. We were able to resolve issues in less time without having to leave the home office,” said Kostuk.

Wavelink solutions, such as Wavelink Terminal Emulation and Avalanche, are tightly integrated with the Wavelink portfolio of solutions, in turn providing end-to-end solutions for the entire enterprise. When customers add devices and other peripherals to their enterprise networks, they can be sure that Wavelink solutions will grow with them.”

“When customers’ needs grow and change, Wavelink products like Avalanche and Terminal Emulation allow them to gain tremendous flexibility by adding newer mission critical devices as needed,” said Stephen Bemis, vice president of worldwide sales for Wavelink. It is truly a future-proof solution set and we look forward to continue evolving our products alongside our customers.”

SALT LAKE CITY — August 20, 2013 — Wavelink, a business unit of LANDesk Software (www.wavelink.com), today announced the release of Wavelink Terminal Emulation (TE) for iOS. TE for iOS provides reliable, secure data and host application access for iOS mobile device users. This latest installment of TE follows previously announced support for the Android platform, making Wavelink TE the only terminal emulation solution that supports all of the major mobile operating systems, including Windows, Android and Apple.

Enterprises are increasingly adopting iOS devices to take advantage of their sleek appearance and easy-to-learn functionality for customer-facing task workers. Modern task workers use these iOS devices as mobile POS systems as well as a multipurpose productivity tools. However, for some task workers, the mobile freedom provided by these devices can be undercut if they need to access another screen to complete tasks such as stock-lookups and delivery schedules. With the new TE for iOS, these inventory, stocking and workflow tasks are now supported on iOS devices, increasing the flexibility of enterprise mobility deployments while improving task worker efficiency and productivity.

“Terminal emulation and mobile device technology combine as core building blocks on which many companies do business,” said Steve Bemis, vice president of worldwide sales at Wavelink. “With TE for iOS, in addition to our existing support of Windows and Android platforms, enterprises are empowered to make the device choices that are right for them and their task workers, whether it’s an Apple device on the retail floor, an Android device in the hands of a delivery truck driver or a Windows device in the warehouse. Wavelink’s platform supports all of these, eliminating the need to choose between existing systems and new device technology.”

Wavelink’s TE is deployed on over 7 million devices around the world and has been selected by 9 of the 10 largest global retailers to provide reliable, secure mobile access to host applications. Enterprises can easily manage and scale mission-critical applications on a variety of mobile devices and operating systems, ensuring end users always have access to the tools they need to be productive and efficient. Organizations can work smarter to provide intelligent data collection and communications functions, take advantage of easy on-screen navigation, and maximize the uptime of a workforce by avoiding dropped connections, directed messages and error notices.
