Samsung Partners With Microsoft and Verizon to Aid Frontline Workers

Samsung is a global organization that inspires the world and shapes the future with transformative ideas and technologies. The company is redefining the worlds of TVs, smartphones, wearable devices, tablets, digital appliances, network systems, and memory, system LSI, foundry and LED solutions. 

Samsung Electronics America (SEA) recently announced it is working with Microsoft and Verizon to bring the new Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro to the U.S. market. The launch of this new device is built to enable frontline workers to accelerate the adoption of mobile-first vertical solutions for enterprise and SMB customers. As mobility continues to drive business disruption in very positive ways, devices like the Galaxy XCover Pro will deliver new mobile-enabled business solutions for frontline workers, leveraging the hardware, software, and services strengths of the companies for their customers, all on Verizon’s reliable nationwide network.

“In 2020, businesses are continuing to talk about mobile as the most important element in driving business innovation,” says Taher Behbehani, General Manager and Head of Mobile B2B Division at Samsung Electronics America. “Launching the XCover Pro with these partners shows our strong commitment to bringing mobile innovation to the B2B market in ways that maximizes frontline workers’ productivity.”

“The integration of the Galaxy XCover Pro’s push-to-talk functionality with Teams advances Microsoft’s longstanding partnership with Samsung, and brings the power of instant communication to where it’s needed most – the frontline,” said Emma Williams, Corporate Vice President, Modern Workplace Verticals at Microsoft. “The Galaxy XCover Pro and Teams are both built to tackle the unique challenges and opportunities of the frontline environment.”

“This new device, coupled with Microsoft’s Teams, will work best on the Verizon network, and will enable our business services teams to provide end-to-end solutions that accelerate our customer’s integration of rich productivity applications for their entire workforce – digitally transforming their operations for their customers,” said Jeff Dietel, SVP Marketing, Verizon Business Group.
