International law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP is enjoying a hefty uplift in productivity and flexibility, thanks to a winning mobility strategy from communications and IT specialist Intercity Technology.
Intercity has slashed the law firm’s mobile phone bills by introducing a new tariff with fixed daily mobile charges – a huge benefit to a company with offices in the USA, Middle East and Asia, and senior partners and attorneys travelling globally every day.
A Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) session was also organised by Intercity at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman’s London office, allowing all employees to ask questions and choose devices with the added functionality they needed to work effectively, including apps and extra security.
Intercity’s partner, Wandera, added an additional layer of handset security and management, crucial for a company working with highly sensitive data on a daily basis.
James Allen, Head of Professional Services at Intercity Technology, said: “CYOD sessions are a great way of getting employee buy-in and making everyone feel involved in the decision-making process.
“International law firms like Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman have a high proportion of senior staff undertaking a lot of travel, so it was crucial for them to have a cost-effective, reliable mobility strategy, with absolutely watertight security – but equally, to have their say in the precise functionality they needed.”
Cristina McKenna, Director of Administration at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, added: “Intercity’s technical team is brilliant. They are very responsive to queries and extremely professional.
“Due to our heavy reliance on mobile devices, Intercity have certainly made life easier for us. They are continually helping us to use devices in a better way and they recommend solutions that make us more cost-effective and secure.”
