IT security and mobility reseller AVR International has secured a three-year managed services contract to provide mobile device management for Volkswagen UK.
The reseller has been working with Volkswagen UK since 2011 when it managed the deployment of iPads to Volkswagen's UK showroom sales teams.
As well as partnering with Apple, the Twyford based reseller's vendor partners include Cisco, Intel and Symantec.
The new contract will see AVR International manage over 4,000 iPads across Volkswagen group in more than 200 UK showrooms.
The reseller will also provide managed services and technical support through its in-house mobility service desk.
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."
Jennifer Wood, digital manager at Volkswagen UK, added: "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."
