TruckSumo is an on-demand platform for small commercial vehicles that aggregates these vehicles and instantly connects them to businesses and individuals in need of local transportation. In a space littered with multiple disorganized vendors, TruckSumo was conceptualized to cut through the clutter and bring reliability into the goods transportation experience. With specially trained drivers, safety-screened vehicles and free insurance, they bring an unprecedented level of professionalism to Indian transportation.

As part of their business of providing small commercial vehicles to customers quickly, TruckSumo equipped all their truck drivers with smartphones, so that customers can get in touch with them directly and track their movements. Now, the smartphones given to the truck drivers are connected to a cellular network and are capable of performing like any other smartphones in turn resulting in device misuse. This could only be avoided by distributing smartphones with access to only specific features and by preventing abuse such as installation of unwanted apps, data use and browsing on the web for personal use. TruckSumo was looking for such a solution which could ensure that the drivers focus only on the intended purpose of receiving jobs, picking up goods and transporting them to the correct destination. They consulted a few development companies for different types of Android kiosk apps, but decided to go with SureLock from 42Gears as it met all their requirements. SureLock had the features that TruckSumo needed to securely lockdown the Android smartphones used by their drivers. With the implementation of SureLock, TruckSumo was able to go to market in short time and a reasonable budget. SureLock also gave TruckSumo full control over applications installed on smartphones and with limited icons on the phones made it easier for drivers to learn how to use smartphones.

Comprehensive Lockdown and Management Features

While other players in the mobility space offer all-inclusive products, 42Gears, since inception was clear about catering to specific requirements of customers looking to onboard an EMM solution as per their need. For this purpose, they designed three separate products (SureLock, SureFox, SureVideo) that could perform three specific MDM actions, while SureMDM web console would help track, monitor and push out jobs to multiple registered devices remotely. Unsurprisingly, SureLock, SureFox, SureVideo worked seamlessly along with SureMDM integrations. The beauty of 42Gears products is that they are mutually exclusive, allowing customer to choose the exact product they need, without having to pay for any service that they may not require.

While SureLock is 42Gears’ flagship product, It is a kiosk lock-down solution that allows companies to restrict access to only certain allowed function or apps on off-the shelf or deployed devices; and SureFox is a secure browser that creates a restricted browsing environment on mobile devices and desktops, allows companies to use their devices as self-service web kiosks and data collection terminals, depending on their requirements.
