Managing masses of mobile workers isn’t easy. Adoption of resources can prove challenging, and it doesn’t help if said resources lack a familiarized look and feel. MaaS360 offers a seamless experience when switching between email, calendar, browser, chat and docs using newly released containers for Productivity Suite and Content Suite on Android and iOS. After all, it’s essential to keep in mind that mobile in the workplace is subject to the same ground rules for user experience and user-friendliness as mobile in the employee’s private life.

    • A new user interface for both Android and iOS will make it much easier to bounce back and forth between processes to save time and stay on task.
    • New swipe gestures have been added for more intuitive navigation and quicker actions.
