According to a Wednesday announcement, Finnish handset-maker Nokia revealed that Woodcraft Rangers - a Los Angeles-based education- and enrichment-centered non-profit - has selected the company's new Lumia 900 smartphone for supporting its field operations as well as increasing its operational efficiencies with a user experience that meets the requirements of site coordinators.
Woodcraft Rangers has, for the last almost nine decades, been providing education and enrichment to over 16,500 youth from in-need neighborhoods via participatory after-school programs, which are run with the help of government grants, donations and bequests.
Since the Woodcraft Rangers' programs require site coordinators to use their mobiles for sharing and reviewing documents while in the field, it is extremely essential to ensure operational efficiency, ease of use and integration with current IT infrastructure.
About Woodcraft Rangers' selection of Lumia 900 to support its field operations, David Lara - the non-profit's IT Administrator - said that the decision largely resulted from the fact that the site coordinators liked the Lumia 900's big, bright Live Tiles, its large screen, and seamless integration to the non-profit's Office Suite.
Further adding that more than 90 Woodcraft Rangers' employees had already received the Lumia 900 in Cyan, Lara said that the non-profit has zeroed in ion the Nokia smartphone because of its "sturdy construction,: and added that, as compared to the "lot of other options," Nokia's handset "gave us the functionality of the most popular smartphone in a format that lets us focus on our work."
