Norton Rose Selects Mobile Systems Management Solution
To Save Time and Money

XcelleNet, Inc., a leading provider of mobile resource management solutions, today announced that Norton Rose, a major international law firm, has selected its mobile systems management solution, Afaria, to manage its mobile workforce with timely up-to-date information to its network of offices in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The firm, which employs over 1500 staff, will benefit from improved communication through the delivery of applications and content over remote devices.

Norton Rose represents and advises banks and other financial institutions, international businesses, major public and private companies, and Governments. Clients include HSBC, Duetsche Bank, easyGroup, Siemens, United Airlines, Exxonmobile and Sumitomo Corp.

Remote Access Project Manager at Norton Rose, Graham Martin, explained: "We wanted a quick and easy solution that was able to communicate effectively with our international offices. We have many offices working in remote corners of the world and the chosen solution had to deliver applications and data quickly so when staff logged into the system, no matter which country they were located, they had up-to-the minute information available." Norton Rose turned to XcelleNet for the job.

Martin added, "As all the packages and programmes we use are designed to manage legal documents, security was the major factor when sourcing the right solution. Afaria complied with all the legal requirements required. Previously, all revisions of the legal files and applications were emailed to the staff, which proved very time consuming.

Afaria has eliminated this process thus saving both time and money in support costs. We have found Afaria very easy to install and it fits in well with our existing programme that works on a Microsoft platform. By next year we also hope to be fully SMS compatible."

Looking to the future Martin concluded, "We chose Afaria, as it offered exactly what we required. With future plans to integrate the use of PDAs, we see Afaria as an integral part of our company’s future development. XcelleNet is one of the major players within this market and we required the best. I have seen some good press reports and third party endorsements and I am confident of our choice."
