… Angel Trains is one of Britain’s leading train leasing companies, providing rolling stock to every train company in the nation. The sheer size of this operation means that Angel Trains needed a way to manage their employee’s mobile devices, no matter where they were across the United Kingdom. Not only that; their staff also needed simple, swift and secure access to company resources through those devices.
Up until recently, the company had been using MobileIron, but as their staff required both a greater range of features and support for more variety in supported devices, it became clear that Angel Trains’ current MDM provider couldn’t keep up. That’s where BlackBerry came into the picture.

BlackBerry UEM meant that Angel Trains could support their device fleet from a single screen, using an MDM solution that supported their internal Microsoft Exchange server. BlackBerry UEM provided the flexibility and cross-platform compatibility their business required. Another advantage of BlackBerry UEM is its ability to support IoT devices – effectively future-proofing Angel Trains’ MDM provision.
