YBS transforms with Nokia smartphones

"Nokia 7 Plus offers high-end specifications at a budget-friendly price”

Andrew Ellison, YBS

Yorkshire Building Society (YBS) is the UK’s third largest building society. When renewing its mobile infrastructure, it needed to give employees the best possible working tools and implement a unified endpoint strategy.

After extensive testing, YBS chose Nokia 7 Plus smartphones to deliver a better user experience, easier mobility administration, and superior security.

“In view of the growing importance of mobile voice and data communication, we have faced the need to create a mobile strategy to keep pace with long term technical challenges,” Andrew Ellison, EUC Delivery Manager at YBS, explains.

He adds: “After three months of testing and market research, we decided to migrate our mobile device infrastructure to Android, utilising only devices that were verified Android Enterprise Recommended.”

After exploring numerous manufacturers’ Android Enterprise Recommended devices, YBS chose the Nokia 7 Plus as its new corporate standard smartphone. “Feedback from pilot users was that the Nokia smartphone has a great, robust design with a smooth user interface and application experience. It also offers a good battery lifetime and delivers a consistent signal using cellular and Bluetooth® connectivity.”

Ellison adds two more important purchasing criteria: “Firstly, while the Nokia 7 Plus offers high-end specifications, the price is budget-friendly. Secondly, HMD Global provides fast delivery of security patches to its Nokia smartphones for three years.”
