i³ Systems, Inc.

i³ Systems, Inc. (hereinafter “i³ Systems”; head office: Fukuoka-city, Fukuoka; CEO: Tsutomu Sasaki) would like to announce that Obayashi Corporation (hereinafter “Obayashi”; head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Toru Shiraishi) has implemented CLOMO into their iPad operation, management and utilization environment across the company.

【Utilization Status of iPad at Obayashi】

Obayashi employs a field inspection support system using iPads for their quality inspections to innovate the traditional work style of field construction managers. At construction fields it is required to accurately understand the construction status and progress and address issues on a case-by-case basis. They used to be required to carry many documents to fields including drawings for confirmation and if there are any changes, they needed to go back to the office to reflect them to the related documents. However, after the iPad implementation, they are now able to eliminate needless operations and improve the work efficiency by checking and immediately modifying drawings and documents at the field with iPad.

【Obayashi environment achieved by CLOMO】

Obayashi has implemented CLOMO across the company as a product to support iPad utilization. CLOMO is used for the objectives as follows.

・Improve efficiency of device operation management: CLOMO MDM
 Has implemented a cloud type of device management infrastructure service for more than 4,000 iPads to check the utilization status, address information leakage, and improve operational efficiency and achieved mobile device management (MDM) environment that allows for efficient large-scale operation and flexible scalability.

Has implemented a cloud type of mobile app management and operation infrastructure service for efficient management and operation of various mobile apps including Obayashi’s own business apps and achieved an MAM (Mobile Application Management) environment that allows for large-sized app distributions and detailed app management.

・Promote efficiency of file sharing and address information leakage: CLOMO SecuredDocs

・Address information leakage when users browsing website: CLOMO SecuredBrowser with i-FILTER
