Nokia Lumia smartphones to be used in select sales operations for The Coca-Cola Company

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Espoo, Finland - Nokia has announced that Nokia Lumia smartphones will be used by select sales forces of The Coca-Cola Company in Vietnam and Cambodia. The devices will be used on a daily basis by sales associates in those markets for order processing, equipment validation and market execution improvement.

Nokia Lumia smartphones offer Coca-Cola employees full support for Microsoft(TM) Office on the Microsoft(TM) Windows Phone 8 platform, allowing easy synchronization with Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, Lync and Office365 as well as seamless integration with Outlook. The features enable employees to work flexibly and remotely with secure access to all their corporate data and systems.

Business level security also comes as standard on Nokia Lumia, with hardware-accelerated encryption, secure boot, sandboxed apps and remote device management capabilities.
