Panaji : Finnish handset maker Nokia today said it has gained huge traction in the enterprise space adding over 400 firms as customers for its Lumia range of smartphones amid companies embracing trends like BYOD.

In the last two years, Nokia has added firms across

sectors like IT-ITeS, telecom, BFSI, infrastructure, hospitality and FMCG.

"Bring your own device (BYOD) has helped us gain strong ground in the enterprise segment, especially for our Lumia smartphones. With Microsoft as a partner with us, companies have access to productivity solutions as well," Nokia India Director, Sales, Raghuvesh Sarup said.

CIOs are primarily concerned about the security aspect which is again well taken care of by Lumia range, he added.

Companies that have come on board recently include GMR Group, Tech Mahindra, Deloitte, KPIT, Qualcomm and Emerson among others, he said.

"BYOD has also helped since it is the consumers that connect with the Nokia brand and trust us for their office and personal needs," he said.

The Lumia range also offers a lower total cost of ownership for services like email and the Microsoft Office

suite along with enterprise grade security, making us a suitable choice, he added.
