More than 70 per cent of the Australian employees at elevator and escalator provider KONE AUSTRALIA have selected Nokia Lumia as their smartphone of choice.

What is perhaps more interesting is that KONE Australia has introduced a new policy which is part of a hybrid Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) model. It allows employees to choose their own smartphone from a number of manufacturers including Nokia, Samsung, HTC and Apple.

KONE approved the Lumia 610, 800, 710 and 920 and 300 employees in Australia and 60 employees in New Zealand have gone Nokia. Reasons for selecting the Lumia included (not in order of importance): Nokia Drive; Microsoft Lync; SharePoint; and Windows Phone People Hub.

A key element of KONE’s business is rapid turnaround maintenance for elevators, lifts and travelators moving people through high traffic locations across Australia and New Zealand. Highly accurate Nokia Drive with Navteq maps made a difference.

“The People Hub feature of Windows Phone is another great tool which helps organise teams internally. Sales and operations staff have already set-up groups, which allow management to stay in touch with co-workers across text, Facebook, Twitter, MSN Chat and email,” KONE'S Colleen Upsall said.

Opinion: If you read any article on Windows 8 Phone they all share a common thread – it is good for business. Nokia’s added value was the excellent Nokia Drive software and the lustrous and bright polycarbonate shell is very trendy.
