Strategic relationship creates integrated cloud-based collaboration solution to address the needs of growing mobile workforce for Singapore businesses

ALE, operating under the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise* brand, and mobile manufacturer Samsung Electronics Singapore today announced they have formed a strategic partnership to offer an integrated mobile solution that assists businesses in creating the workplace of the future.

Research shows 80 percent of enterprises say employees can’t do their job without mobility¹, and that a mobile employee fulfils 240 hours of productivity per year². ALE and Samsung address these facts and the challenges of deploying a mobile workforce, including compliance and security, control of the network and personal vs business related usage. By bundling connectivity, security, communications and computing with a cloud-based collaboration application, the two companies deliver a joint offering unique to the market at an affordable monthly fee.

The collaboration of industry leading products - Samsung’s DeX³ for mobile, Samsung Knox security and Alcatel-Lucent Rainbow™ - are optimally designed to deliver a new level of mobility and productivity. Additionally, the solution can be customized to meet specific business needs and integrate with business processes, applications and technologies, such as AI and BOTs, enabling easy adoption at any stage of a company’s digital transformation journey.  

The initial offer will be available in Singapore starting in Q1 2019. 

“Today’s workplace is evolving to become increasingly mobile. With smartphone and cloud computing at the center of this transformation, developing innovative solutions and forming open collaborations are key in supporting this shift. As a forward-thinking industry leader, Samsung partners with ALE to create a secure, integrated communications offering that will enhance employee experiences in this connected workplace of the future,” said Mr. Eugene Goh, President of Samsung Electronics Singapore.

“The bundled solution revolutionizes how businesses in Singapore can adopt a secure solution with enterprise grade management for the mobile workforce,” said Pierre Samson, Vice President, Asia-Pacific at ALE. “ALE is excited for the opportunity to work with Samsung assisting customers in their digital transformation.”
