IT security and mobility specialist AVR International Ltd has won a service contract to provide manage and maintain over 4,000 iPads used across Volkswagen UK’s retail network.
AVR initially began working with Volkswagen in 2011 when the company was commissioned to manage the deployment of iPads to Volkswagen’s UK showroom sales team and create a flexible, engaging customer experience, giving customers access to design, sales and marketing content from anywhere across the showroom floor.
The company has now won a tender to maintain the system across the Volkswagen Group retail locations in sales, after sales, and commercial vehicles.
Jennifer Wood, digital manager at Volkswagen UK, said: “Our showrooms are a vital part of the customer experience and we needed a provider who could offer a flexible, secure solution for our sales team.
“AVR has exceeded our expectations and delivered a completely bespoke solution and we look forward to seeing how this develops further as we continue to work with AVR.”
Combining technology available from Apple and MobileIron, AVR is providing Volkswagen with a multi-layered secure data environment and professional services including systems design, installation and configuration, project management, training and support.
Helen Hall, managing director at AVR International Ltd, said: “Winning this contract to continue our work with Volkswagen gives us a great sense of pride.
“From the beginning we have tailored our services to meet Volkswagen’s specific needs and have created a flexible solution that is constantly evolving to address the changing requirements of the company.”
