Transportation companies and logistics leaders have built their entire business around on-time delivery, smooth processes and operational efficiency, so require security solutions which guarantee these aspects of their business. Downtime and delays are a major business risk. In addition this industry is subject to the many regulations and rules regarding storage of confidential and customer data so require real reporting and compliance expertise from their security and licensing partner.
FMCG and Manufacturing companies need to secure maximum operational efficiency and enable maximum possible production time. Reliability of service is key in this industry where a lost minute equals lost revenue. Companies in this sphere also seek solution longevity so that investments keep them at maximum efficiency long term. Security and licensing solutions proposed to companies in this area need to take account of these priorities.
Software Licensing within retail store environments is different to that of other corporate sectors. There are several distinct factors, such as the use of no-PC, network-connected devises (price scanners and RFID readers) and the sheer complexities associated with regularly opening and closing stores. IT Security challenges are often amplified for retailers due to the risk and regulations around the use and storage of customer information (PCI, DSS) and their need for system stability to support customer trading.
Although businesses and solutions are rarely the same, they often share the same pain and goals within certain industry verticals, which is why having a market focus is fundamental in forging long term relationships and gaining trusted advisor status.
