Logistics Service Provider Bleckmann Chooses SOTI For Visibility and Control Over Its Mission-Critical Mobile Devices

Mississauga, CANADA – May 14, 2024 Leading logistics company Bleckmann has renewed its IT infrastructure with the implementation of SOTI MobiControl. As a global logistics company with a special focus on e-fulfilment and over 30 distribution centres, Bleckmann serves customers in the fashion and lifestyle sectors. Due to the logistical challenges, effective Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) is of great importance. 

To tackle the challenge, Bleckmann was looking for an efficient approach to manage its mobile devices to provide the best logistics service for its customers in the fashion and lifestyle sectors. The company needed a way to update, support and view devices centrally from a single location. Additionally, they were looking for a streamlined way to manage multiple operating systems and warehouse management systems. 

"We are constantly looking at how we can provide the best logistics service to our customers, especially now that fast and efficient service is becoming increasingly important," said Dirk Hofkens, Global IT Infrastructure Manager at Bleckmann. "Thanks to the direct collaboration between our internal IT team and SOTI MobiControl, Bleckmann has doubled the number of seamlessly installed devices across the warehousing footprint in Europe, the UK and the U.S. This collaboration with SOTI demonstrates our shared drive for innovation and our determination to successfully address the growing challenges in our industry."

“To achieve growth and advancement, it is critical businesses invest in a unified Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution to oversee all devices in their fleet. Organizations need device visibility and a simple, easy to use way to update devices remotely - regardless of location. Today, Bleckmann serves as a global example of this how SOTI enables this principle,” said Shash Anand, SVP of Product Strategy at SOTI.
