Arup Unchains Engineers from the Desk With MobileIron Solutions
Founded in 1946 as a structural engineering firm, Arup first came to the world’s attention when it performed the structural design of the Sydney Opera House. Arup has since grown into a truly multidisciplinary organisation. The firm’s work for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing reaffirmed its reputation for delivering innovative and sustainable designs that reinvent the built environment. Arup has 11,000 employees across 90 offices in 38 countries, and reported revenues of £1 billion for the year ended March 31, 2013.
Purpose of Implementation
- Develop and deliver apps that save countless hours for employees worldwide
- Increase efficiency by continuously moving corporate processes and content onto mobile platforms
- Manage corporate issued and BYOD devices on a single platform
- Launch and run a corporate mobility program using only existing IT staff, with minimal need for specialised training
From a support point of view, things have been streamlined. If anything, mobile devices actually generate fewer support tickets than PCs. We’re supporting our entire global mobile program with existing IT staff.
