East Renfrewshire Council

Embraces the future of agile working

The Challenge

East Renfrewshire Council (ERC) had embarked upon an agile working programme that moved traditionally office-based people into the field and created a demand for secure smartphones and tablets. In addition the council had only a few months to meet all the security requirements for Public Services Network (PSN) compliance.

The Solution

O2 identified and rolled out the best mobile device management (MDM) solution to address the security requirements. ERC is also deploying O2 Wifi in its council buildings, for the convenience of both its staff and citizens.

"O2 were superb. They've the expertise and experience we needed to choose and roll out the right solution." Patrick Murray, East Renfrewshire Council.
