Mast Mobile Launches Android Version, First to Launch With Samsung KNOX Cloud SDK
Today Mast, the mobile-first unified communication provider for modern enterprises, announces that its services will now be available on the Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge with the new Android M operating system. In addition, the company is launching the industry’s first commercial integration with Samsung KNOX Cloud SDK to provide device security. Mast is also announcing that Samsung Electronics has invested in the company. Mast will continue to work with Samsung to develop and deploy unique solutions that leverage Samsung’s market-leading devices and KNOX platform capabilities.
Since its official launch in Q4 2015, Mast has been adopted by sales leaders who want to improve productivity by using the first mobile integration with Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics. IT and financial leaders can also benefit from Mast’s technology by eliminating underused desk phones.
Mast provides the only mobile platform that integrates all your mobile communications with clients into CRM solutions like Salesforce and Dynamics, which addresses sales leaders’ highest priorities: improving sales analytics and mobilizing their sales teams. Historically, manual data entry has been consistently reported as the biggest challenge in getting value from CRM systems. Mast solves this problem by automatically loading all client communication data into the CRM system. The Mast platform will provide tools to record and transcribe calls, integrate and analyze business communications data with a broad range of enterprise applications going forward.
Finance and IT leaders grapple with fragmented and inefficient communication solutions. These struggles include landlines, over-the-top (OTT) apps, separate work and personal smartphones, and consolidation of corporate mobile plans and BYOD reimbursement policies. The reality is that employees are mostly resistant to use desk phones and OTT apps because they want to use their smartphones as they normally would on a daily basis. Those BYOD smartphones do not provide companies access to the work-related communication data and they also expose security risks. Not to mention the range of hidden costs and administrative hassles that can be encountered. Corporate issued devices would be a solution; however, privacy concerns still lead to employees carrying two separate phones.
With its enterprise mobility management portal, PBX capabilities on mobile numbers, and magic-like implementation of two numbers on one phone, Mast introduces a completely new type of platform that reduces costs and enables employees to effectively manage work and personal communications.
“Mast offers an innovative mobile-first business communication platform and a unique implementation of Samsung KNOX Cloud SDK to provide security out of the box,” said Jaideep Mirchandani, Director, KNOX Product Management atSamsung Electronics. “The speed and quality of integration over Samsung devices and KNOX Cloud SDK platform is a testimony of our KNOX developer ecosystem.”
“We invest in industry innovators that can actively shape evolving market trends, and Mast is an emerging winner in the enterprise communication space with their mobile-first approach to unified communications and experienced founding team,” said Dr. Raymond Liao, Managing Director of Strategic Investments at Samsung Global Innovation Center. “No other company is fully addressing today’s business communication needs, and Mast has demonstrated the vision and potential to lead these industry changes.”
“Few businesses are really satisfied with the current communication solutions, which creates a great opportunity for us to show how we can improve productivity with Mast’s ‘smart network’ model” said Mast CEO, David Messenger. “We’re excited that a powerful technology leader such as Samsung supports this vision, which will enable us to accelerate our impact in the market.”
