Loftysoft AB is a consulting firm based out of Malmö, Sweden that focuses on strategic, architectural and technical assistance in Cloud Computing. Founder and CEO, Magnus Mårtensson, travels with his Toshiba Portégé® Z30t laptop, enabling him to work around the world with ease.
Magnus Mårtensson specializes in IT solutions built on the Microsoft® Azure™ Cloud Platform for applications of any scale—from very small to global corporate enterprise. His job requires frequent travel, so he needs a device that gives him the ability to work securely wherever he goes.
“I work on trains and airplanes; I need something I can use in my lap, something I can carry around all the time,” explains Mårtensson. He needs an intelligent solution with enough mobility to perform day-today tasks, such as client communication and assistance, as efficiently as possible.
Loftysoft found the Toshiba Portégé® Z30t laptop running Windows 10 Pro to be the best fit for their needs. With the durable, lightweight device, Mårtensson can book travel, manage expenses and process client requests while on the go. “As a familiar Microsoft® user,” says Mårtensson. “It was all incredibly easy to transition over from my tablet.”
Loftysoft also uses the Portégé® Z30t’s vibrant touchscreen display to present information and work interactively with clients. “I address any business, which means that there is a huge variety in the kind of services I provide,” says Mårtensson. “But regardless of their need, I can use the Portégé® Z30t to share information securely with my clients.”
Choosing the Portégé® Z30t laptop with Windows 10 Pro strengthens Loftysoft’s offering by improving client communication, data security and mobility.
The Portégé® Z30t strikes an ideal balance between size and portability. Its honeycomb structure and spill-resistant keyboard make the Portégé® Z30t laptop an ultralight device—weighing just 2.6 pounds—that’s not afraid of a little water. And with its premium magnesium alloy frame, it’s protected from the bumps and falls that can often happen while traveling. “It feels sturdy yet light, and that’s good,” says Mårtensson. “I can take it with me, and it’s easy to pick up and use wherever I need to work.”
Mårtensson has NDA contracts with all his clients, making data security critical for his business. The advanced security capabilities of the Portégé® Z30t, including the fingerprint reader and Windows Hello, helps Loftysoft keep their clients’ information safer. Windows Hello, included in Windows 10 Pro, is a biometric authentication feature that uses the Portégé® Z30t Fingerprint Reader to guard against unidentified users and achieve enterprise-grade security.
In addition, Windows® BitLocker® Drive Encryption, an added security feature of Windows 10 Pro, encrypts all data stored on the hard drive. BitLocker helps to safeguard against unauthorized users accessing the laptop’s data in the event the laptop is lost or stolen while Mårtensson is traveling.
As an expert in Microsoft Azure, Mårtensson regularly gives presentations on the topic around the world. “When I present, I want my device to shine. It has to be professional.” Mårtensson says. “I enjoy bringing up the Portégé® Z30t because it looks sleek with its razor-thin design.”
Fortunately for Mårtensson, the Portégé® Z30t proves that a sleek design doesn’t mean limited functionality. The Portégé® Z30t contains all the necessary ports and connections essential to mobile business, including a VGA connector, Ethernet, full-size HDMI® port, SD card reader, three USB 3.0 ports and the Toshiba Hi-Speed Port Replicator for full docking convenience. “I love the fact that it has all these nice connecting capabilities,” says Mårtensson, “because I don’t have to use any dongles.”
These features, along with the touchscreen and 13.3-inch display of the Portégé® Z30t, allow Mårtensson to work on the go with a fully competent device. As a result, his work is more efficient and convenient for his clients. “Working on the go means I can complete tasks faster, giving me more time to focus on my company’s success,” Mårtensson says. “I will be using the Portégé® Z30t everywhere I go because it fulfills all my needs in one device.”
