L’Oreal provides access to products that enhance well-being, mobilising its innovative strength to preserve the beauty of the planet and supporting local communities. These are exacting challenges, which are a source of inspiration and creativity for L’Oréal.
In a joint project with Apple and Apple Finance, L’Oreal engaged Crunch IT to design and deliver the setup and deployment project for over 100 iPads. This project was particularly challenging as it was to be delivered over the Holiday/New Year period when many key resources (at both Crunch IT and L’Oreal) had scheduled leave and as the L’Oreal Mobile Devices Management (MDM) Solution (AirWatch) was housed and managed in Paris.
L’Oreal required the iPads to be configured using their AirWatch Mobile Devices Management (MDM) to enable their national sales team to easily access presentation and other sales materials from their SharePoint system. They also required the configuration of AirWatch to enable the easy addition of new users and management of existing user profiles.
Crunch IT worked with Apple to ensure that the iPad’s were delivered within the timeframe required, including the advance shipment of several iPads for proof of concept demonstration.
Crunch also worked closely with the internal L’Oreal team across Asia and Paris to develop the AirWatch profiles and access requirements for the project.
