BMI introduces Vodaphone Profile Manager

Solution allows people to securely separate work and personal information on a single device

BMI Healthcare has become one of the first medical providers in the UK to implement Vodafone Profile Manager, which allows people to securely separate work and personal information on a single device.

BMI Healthcare chose the service to support secure email on new handsets currently being introduced.

Mobile devices are transforming the way organisations operate

The private healthcare provider has an increasingly mobile workforce and needs to provide secure access to corporate emails on company phones with the option of using personal devices as well.

At the same time, employees want to be assured that any personal information remains confidential. Vodafone Profile Manager, powered by Divide, allows BMI Healthcare to put in place an option which ensures the company can deliver security and personalisation, enabling a more responsive and flexible workforce.

Dan Morgan, service delivery director at BMI Healthcare, said: “We needed to have safe and secure email usage as well as offering an option for people to use their own devices if they wanted. Vodafone Profile Manager met all our criteria and was simple to deploy.”

Commenting on the agreement, Jan Geldmacher,, chief executive of Vodafone Global Enterprise, added: “Mobile devices are transforming the way organisations operate and we are excited to partner with BMI Healthcare and support their mobility strategy. We are seeing increasing numbers of organisations implementing BYOD initiatives and realising significant benefits.”

And Alexander Trewby, chief operating officer at Divide, said: “Now it means that every employee is accessing corporate data via a mobile device that may or may not be owned by the company. Enterprise mobility is complex and Vodafone Profile Manager dramatically simplifies the process by which companies and healthcare organisations like BMI are able to gain a competitive advantage through BYOD.”

Vodafone Profile Manager has been deployed to nearly 400 BMI employees, including board members, hospital directors and managers.
