A new boost for Mobile Device Management with Windows 8 

MediaContact WindowsBeaucouzé, FRANCE - October 3, 2012 - The French software publisher Telelogos announces the release of the new version 5.6 of its MediaContact software suite. With this mobile device management solution, companies can manage fleets of mobile devices running Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro. In addition, the publisher announced new specific features for Android tablets, smartphones and rugged terminals.


The new version of the Mobile Device Management (MDM) software “MediaContact 5.6” is compatible with Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro mobile devices. The new operating system to be commercialized by Microsoft from October 26th, 2012 is eagerly awaited in the enterprise world. In order to be ready for this major event in the world of mobility, the French publisher Telelogos has developed a new version of its MDM software for mobile devices running Windows 8 (tablets and smartphones), even before the official deployment of the new OS.

Beyond the standard features offered by all MDM solutions on the market (hardware and software inventory, provisioning, remote control ...), MediaContact reaffirms once more its differentiation in offering an exclusive Mobile Application Management (MAM) feature. Locally available on the mobile device, applications must accompany mobile workers in their daily professional activities (delivery people, maintenance technicians, controllers, health personal, sales force ...). Firstly, MediaContact 5.6 allows the installation and updating of mobile applications remotely via its software distribution function, and also guarantees the exchange and synchronization of data between mobile devices and the company’s information system, over all types of communication networks. The MAM function within MediaContact 5.6 ensures a continuous link between the corporate headquarters and business applications on the mobile terminal, even if the device is disconnected from the information system.

Furthermore, Telelogos announces new features for the administration and security of Android devices. MediaContact 5.6 offers data synchronization services (files or SQL Lite databases) for the integration of business applications running on Android mobile devices (tablets, smartphones, PDA’s ...) connected to the company’s information system. In addition, MediaContact 5.6 provides a desktop or controlled “kiosk” function which creates a highly secured portal to Android mobile applications. Configured by the administrator and made available to the device users, this gateway to business applications gives administrators complete control over applications provided on the devices. This function ultimately ensures a professional use of the tablet, smartphone or PDA, and equally ensuring its security and preventing access to system functions on the terminal.


Telelogos will officially launch the new version 5.6 of MediaContact software at the Mobility for Business show, on stand E11. This event dedicated to mobility which will be held on the 10th and 11th of October 2012 at the CNIT in Paris, France.
