MobiVisor MDM in shipbuilding

As a provider of all-round solutions in the field of air conditioning, ventilation and refrigeration technology, Drews Marine GmbH scores with years of experience in the maritime industry. The Hamburg-based company develops system integrators for holistic HVAC solutions to improve air quality in passenger cabins, for example on naval vessels, yachts, merchant ships or in the offshore sector.

With our Mobile Device Management (MDM) system MobiVisor, Drews Marine GmbH can be supported in its everyday work in various ways. The Hamburg-based company employs over 100 people - and we have been able to call Drews Marine GmbH a customer since July 2021. In total, Drews Marine uses our MobiVisor MDM on all 75 of their mobile devices from Apple, Samsung and Caterpillar.

The maritime industry has a number of challenges: On the one hand, devices are needed to be used on site on ships, on the other hand, devices are needed to be used as regular corporate phones. And all this requires a central system to manage all devices.

This is where MobiVisor comes in: with our Mobile Device Manager, all devices can be centrally viewed and managed, for example to deploy apps or control usage.

In a more specific case, Caterpillar phones with thermal imaging cameras are used in boat building on the ships. CAT Phones are rugged devices that are protected against the ingress of moisture and dirt. The thermal imaging camera is needed to scan the boats for uninsulated areas so that they can be sealed afterwards. In addition, the equipment is also used to document work processes, for example to take pictures of boat building.

In the company administration, Samsung devices are now used as regular company telephones for work in the office. Here, too, it is important that the devices and their users are centrally registered and managed in order to prevent 'device chaos' and to secure company-related data.

Despite the different usage scenarios, there is one major commonality: the rollout of the devices, i.e. the set-up with users, apps and co. via MobiVisor, consists of just a few steps. This simplicity is also very much appreciated by Drews Marine - because it saves valuable time. The intuitiveness of the user interface and the flexibility when adding functions or settings on the end devices are also of great value. Drews Marine also praises IOTIQ's excellent service:

Every MDM is complex and because of the complexity, the competent support is always available to us. We appreciate the team at IOTIQ and look forward to new innovations.
