Nokia signs handset deal with estate agents Foxtons
Nokia has signed a deal with estate agent Foxtons to supply staff with its Lumia 820 smartphone.
The manufacturer has already given the device to around 900 of Foxtons' employees. The estate agent has developed bespoke apps for the handsets for its staffs' use. Foxtons said the partnership allows it to deploy its Microsoft systems onto smartphones.
Adrian Williams, director of business sales UK at Nokia, said: 'Foxtons is a great example of how a company can empower its workforce to work effectively on the move, with their smartphones integrated with its existing Microsoft infrastructure. We are delighted that Nokia applications such as Nokia Drive and Nokia City Lens are making a real difference for Foxtons employees in the competitive real estate market.'
