Nokia is never far from boasting how much its Lumia line of smartphones is suited for business use. And while the various handsets in the Lumia series have found success in the end-user segment, the list of enterprises adopting them is continually growing.
One such business victory recoded is London’s premier estate agent, Foxtons.
The company has just announced that it is moving its workforce (totaling more than 900 employees) to the Lumia 820. It has partnered with Nokia for deploying the solution:
“In a fast moving business with many staff movements across departments and locations, keeping an accurate, up-to-date contact list is a challenge for us.
We’ve developed an app integrating our personnel system with our active directory and phone system so all the information is accurate and can be accessed directly from our agents’ Nokia Lumia 820s. It’s a great timesaver and asset for the team.”
Ultimately, the integration with its existing Microsoft infrastructure was the most important factor in choosing the Lumia 820. The company already uses several Microsoft solutions like Outlook, Excel and Word, and the built-in Microsoft Office functionality on Windows Phone offers it productivity on the go:
“The Nokia Lumia 820 aligns with our entire device strategy and allows us to fully integrate our current Microsoft systems throughout the company.”
The company has also stated deploying its own applications on the Lumia 820 smartphone to multiply the productivity of its field agents. Foxtons has 35 offices throughout London and 2 in Surrey, and sells on average 1,400 properties a month.
