City of Staunton Uses Amtel Solution to Effectively Manage City Workers’ Smartphone Usage

Saves the City Money and Helps Police and Other Staff Members to Work More Efficiently and Collaborate


SANTA CLARA, CA–(Marketwired – Apr 4, 2013) - Amtel the leading provider of solutions for the mobile revolution, announced today its mobile device management solution was chosen City of Staunton, Virginia to help it to save costs and reduce the risk of lost or stolen city-owned devices.

Staunton is located near Richmond and Washington D.C. and is home to more than 24,000 residents. The City of Staunton purchased a number of Android devices to distribute to city employees working in various capacities, including managers, police officers, and other staff members. They needed a formal system in place to help manage these devices to ensure data was secure and so staff members could perform their jobs efficiently.

“Amtel’s team worked with us through every stage of MDM implementation, from testing to the final launch,” said Mella Brown, Network Specialist at City of Staunton. “There are several available MDM solutions out in the marketplace, and we choose Amtel for its ease of use and ability to track devices at all of our multiple locations.”

The city’s IT staff can now track all of the city-issued devices, use Amtel’s password service for maximum security, and protect lost or stolen devices with remote lock and wiping features. Control over downloaded device applications is possible through Amtel’s MDM which provides Staunton management with a “white list” and “black list” of applications.

“We are pleased to meet the needs of the City of Staunton through our secure MDM solution, and see a massive demand for our services among cities across the country,” said Pankaj Gupta, CEO of Amtel. “We have a proven track record of aiding both companies and municipalities to control their mobile devices in order to ensure the integrity of their data and to also lower related expenses.”
