Singapore Airlines has selected VMware to enhance employee experience at a digital level through the deployment of Workspace ONE in partnership with Net One Asia.
Terms of the agreement will see the software giant streamline the delivery of mobile applications across more than 14,000 employee-owned devices, in addition to over 6,000 company-issued devices.
The aim is to allow the national carrier of Singapore to provide “richer” employee digital experiences across multiple applications and devices, in alignment with the company’s bring your own device (BYOD) strategy.
“Singapore Airlines has been at the forefront of digital innovation and we would like to congratulate the team for continuing to think beyond to enable greater workforce efficiency,” said Sanjay K. Deshmukh, vice president and managing director of Southeast Asia and Korea, VMware.
According to Deshmukh, the Workspace ONE platform facilitates “seamless access” to software-as-a-service productivity applications, alongside the airline’s mobile and intranet web applications on BYOD mobile devices, wrapped up with enterprise-level security.
“Digital workspace solutions are recognised for their ability to offer a seamless, collaborative workplace experience and VMware is committed to supporting the carrier on its mission of enabling greater enterprise mobility while improving operational efficiency while enhancing data security,” Deshmukh added.
At this stage, Singapore Airlines has deployed 35 mobile applications developed by an in-house technology development and innovation team, while leveraging Workspace ONE’s App Catalog to bolster protection levels.
The deployment comes a matter of weeks after VMware shed more light on its new Connect program and portal, which will be rolled out to the channel on 29 February 2020.
