Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences (HR) is the second university of applied sciences in the Netherlands and is growing fast. The university has over 39,000 students and around 4,000 members of staff. They wanted to implement a Choose-Your-Own-Device (CYOD) concept by using the latest hardware and software technology.
HR wants to offer its staff laptops for the ultimate user experience as well as security in use. In addition, the University naturally wants to boost productivity and promote the interaction between teaching staff and students. To achieve this, it chose state of the art technology: the Microsoft Surface line in combination with Microsoft365. They very consciously chose a CYOD approach. From a selection of devices, the staff can choose one that meets their wishes and needs. This concept also ensures higher customer satisfaction and can help speed up the adoption and use of Office365. For the rollout and management of these new devices, Microsoft offers an amazing solution but the possibilities to distribute applications was still very limited.
Liquit Workspace proved the solution for offering the hundreds of applications used by the University. The fact that Liquit Workspace can distinguish between device, user and location (context aware) is also a major advantage to the customer. This way the user only sees the applications they are intended to see.
