Woodcraft Rangers to support its field operations and increase operational efficiencies with Nokia Lumia 900
TT Correspondent |  |  09 Jun 2012

Woodcraft Rangers, a Los Angeles based non profit providing education and enrichment to more than 16,500 youth from in need neighborhoods through after school programs, has chosen the Lumia 900 to support its field operations and to increase operational efficiencies while providing a user experience that meets the needs of a wide age group of site coordinators.


For over 90 years, Woodcraft Rangers has been providing participatory programs for students in kindergarten through high school operating primarily through, government grants, donations and bequests.


Operational efficiency, ease of use and integration with existing IT infrastructure is of paramount importance. "We were looking to repurpose BlackBerry servers so right there we are saving money," said David Lara, IT Administrator, Woodcraft Rangers. "Additionally, our site coordinators like the big, bright Live Tiles, the Lumia's large screen and we like the seamless integration to our Office Suite," he added.


“Over 90 employees at the non profit have received the Lumia 900 in Cyan, adding that black is too hard to find in a purse or between the car seats. "We looked at a lot of options," Lara noted.


 "The sturdy construction of the Lumia 900 stood out to us. Other options seemed too delicate and focused on entertainment. Nokia's option gave us the functionality of the most popular smartphone in a format that lets us focus on our work."


Site coordinators use their mobiles to share and review documents while in the field. Additionally, employees can quickly and accurately use their time card application on their mobile which ensures payroll accuracy. By pinning the mobile app URL to their home screen as a Live Tile, access to the time card app is one touch away.


With a history of communications since 1922, the organization is exploring mobile field use and sees the Lumia 900 as a tool they can leverage across new areas utilizing its social media and imaging capabilities.


Nokia provides the business market with a portfolio of compelling, high quality devices at every price point that meets the needs of people both as consumers and business users. With business productivity tools and applications to ensure employees have access to the information they need within the framework of a well governed IT environment and an ecosystem of partners and providers, Nokia ensures the long term viability of IT investments.
