Geofencing Solutions

Fluid Mobility and Ivanti MDM enable Spartan Nash to apply policies to their mobile devices based on geofencing, time and location. This means that they can control which applications are available or restricted on the devices depending on where they are and when they are used, driving productivity. 

Fluid’s solution also has a SOS button and duress messaging and emergency service contacting in case of worker emergency. 

For example, if a device leaves a warehouse or a store, the device can automatically lock or wipe itself to guard against unauthorized access/misuse. 

Solution Highlights

  • SOS and duress messaging, with dynamic pathing to workers. 
  • Drive productivity by limiting unnecessary app functionality. 
  • Drive security by locking organizational data and more when off-prem or off-the-clock.
