Stay Connected

People stay connected with their relatives using controlled tablets and smartphones in hospitals and elderly care.

Together with Samsung and based on our experience in hospitals and elderly care, we now launch the project “1 euro a day to stay connected”!  

We recently did several healthcare projects based on Samsung hardware combined with our expert support. We automated the configuration of the device, pushed apps remotely and limited access to settings to avoid down time. This got us thinking and together with Samsung we now launch a new initiative for the sector in our country that needs it the most: healthcare.

“The IT people from the hospital and elderly care homes have enough on their mind, so the devices are automatically configured the moment these are switched on for the first time.” says Jean-Francois Rigot, senior consultant at mobco. On top, the system is temper proof; Only those apps that are required for patient communication (like Skype and a browser) are allowed, all other apps and settings are blocked (Kiosk mode). “This way the devices stay operational without any hands-no service needed.” Jean-Francois concludes.

For just 1 Euro a day we’re shipping the top range devices, pre-configured and restricted, to the hospitals who sign in to this program.

The devices we selected, with the help of Samsung, are ‘special’ Xcover Pro smartphones. The smartphone survive drops and are one of the few on the market that can be sanitised using alcohol to kill the virus. Using the Samsung software and mobco services, we customize the entire patient experience: we make it extra simple to use, from selected apps to even the wallpaper on the device.

New Apple Hardware march 2020

How the new Apple line-up
will change your business.

Apple announced new updates in its professional lineup.
Trackpad update for the iPad Pro, major improvements on the MacBook Air and double storage for the Mac Mini.

iPad Pro

Looking almost identical to last year’s models, the new iPad Pro is packed with improvements.

With its new processor, the A12Z Bionic Chip, and eight core GPU, it is said to be more powerful than most Windows PC laptops. Combined with the new camera system and LIDAR scanner, the new iPad Pro is ‘made for augmented reality’.

But that’s not what you’ll notice first… It’s that very new keyboard that comes with it.

The keyboard unfolds and elevates the iPad Pro to a more comfortable viewing position, support USB-C passthrough charging and comes with a trackpad!

This trackpad feature has been requested by a lot of iPad users and now it’s here providing a “laptop-like” experience allowing your employees to work everywhere, anytime.

The new iPad Pro is available as of the 23th of March.
The new keyboard will be available as of May.

Macbook Air

The incredibly thin and light MacBook Air is now more powerful than ever.

It features a brilliant Retina display, Touch ID, processors with up to twice the performance, faster graphics, and double the storage capacity, making it a far better machine than its predecessor.

MacBook Air now features the new Magic Keyboard, first seen on the 16-inch MacBook Pro. The refined scissor mechanism with 1 mm of travel delivers a responsive, comfortable, and quiet typing experience.

And with all-day battery life, it’s your perfectly portable, do-it-all notebook.

The design is created from 100 percent recycled aluminum, making it the ‘greenest’ Mac ever.

The new MacBook Air is available as of the 23th of March.

Mac Mini

Re-engineered in no small way, the new Mac Mini standard configurations  comes with double the amount of storage, a wide variety of ports and it’s known general design making it suitable for users who want to use it as a media server or for storage tasks.

This refresh is a slight but welcomed bump to Apple’s smallest and  least expensive desktop Mac.

The new Mac Mini will be available as of the 23th of March.

S20 and Z Flip

Samsung-Z-flip-S20

mobco’s highlights on the newly launched devices at Samsung Unpacked 2020

Last night, Samsung held its latest Unpacked-event and presented some new flagship-smartphones to the world. While rumors and leaks already gave us an idea on what to expect, we were still on the edge of our seats to find out all on the new line up…

Off we go!

The Galaxy Z Flip was up first. Movie-lovers already saw a surprise-ad for this new ‘clamshell foldable’ during the Oscars-show and were going wild.

With ‘Flex Mode’, users are able to split the phone’s display into two 4 inch screens showing different types of content each. Think of a video call on the top screen and call control buttons on the bottom one.

Unlike the previous foldable phone (the Galaxy Fold)
the new Galaxy Z Flip is coming to the Belux-region as well!
As of the 21th of February priced at € 1.240 (list price excl. VAT).

Early adopters will be queuing in front of the Samsung-shops to get their hands on the first distributed devices. 

Up next is the new Galaxy S20, Coming in three flavors (S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra), this new member of the Galaxy family focuses on quality. An upgraded, AI powered camera (up to 108MP and shooting video’s at 8K!), an all-day battery and a new and more secure processor, it features the premium technologies that Galaxy fans have come to know and expect.

For business users: the new S20 range is secured by the Knox-platform,  compatible with DEX desktop mode and holds an IP68-score for water and dust resistance. With the S20 Ultra you can go up to 16GB RAM.

On top of this, the S20 Ultra is the first 5G-compatible device. While politicians in Belgium are still delaying the 5G-network, it’s clear to say that telco companies and smartphone manufacturers are eager to use it.

The S20 is available as of the 13th of March.
S20: as of € 743 (excl. VAT)
S20+: as of 825,62 (excl. VAT)
S20 Ultra: as of €1.114 (excl. VAT)

For closers, we provide an update on the new Galaxy Buds+. Packed with Spotify integration, improved battery and 3 mics it provides an unparalleled sound and voice quality.

Software customers know they get more than just a license!
For starters, the Software Assurance is included in the software subscription or maintenance license and provides you with the latest updates and upgrades, no changes there.
Next we offer a reactive Integration and App Support to assist your IT administrator in solving integration issues that go beyond pure software issues on one platform.

In 2020 we bring both product lines of software and hardware closer together in the ‘Workplace’.
All of our customers have a mobile device management platform and a lot of devices, both active, in repair and on stock.
With the Workplace Self Service, we now offer a portal that handles the complete life cycle of all devices. From start to finish.
Devices in stock or repair are typically out of MDM control, but now remain visible in the portal. No assets get lost.
On top, you can add ‘any asset’ you like to the workplace: 
accessories, computers… and SIM cards! 
Stay tuned for more news on February 20th.
 
Complementary to the Self Service we introduce the Workplace Support! A service where your employees, connected to the Workplace Self Service, can call or mail mobco support in case they need extra assistance: hardware and software issues, new device registration, repair, migrating to a new device or professional app questions.

Happy New Year!
Happy New Services!

New Year, new ambitions!
Wishing you good luck, joy, business and most importantly a good health!
On top, we also wish you less time on the road and more time on what matters, also for ourselves this is key to success.
This year, a follow-up article was published in De Standaard and Het Nieuwsblad on the introduction of e-step to promote our combi-mobility-plan.
The e-step is not the silver bullet to solve the mobility issue, but it does help. Small steps towards a better (faster) mobility!


Sint-Martens-BodegemEnglish translation of original article in De Standaard of January 2, 2020

The IT company mobco had a rather special Christmas present for their employees last year. The 20 company cars got equipped with e-steps!
These compact steps are part of a well-thought ‘combi-mobility-plan’, in which these handy transport devices complement the company car and should also stimulate the use of public transport. ‘By making a smart combination of car, public transport and step, we want to reduce the travel time by 40% and the number of traditional car-miles by 20%’, said Ulrik Van Schepdael at that time. However, a year later that ambition became only partly true. ‘In a number of cases we can actually reduce the travel time’, says Ulrik Van Schepdael, ‘but only when the step is used to cover the last mile from where our employees park their car to the final destination.’
Using the step in combination with public transport is currently not a realistic option. The frequency of trains and busses during the day is too low and the road infrastructure is not always safe to use the step.
Overall, Van Schepdael is positive about the project. Most of our employees regularly use the step. ‘Every car-mile we save is a benefit.’
This Christmas the company introduced a new edition of its combi-mobility-plan. ‘We just can’t go around the company car, but we do encourage our employees to opt for environment friendly cars and they can also use the allocated budget for e-bikes or bikes.’
