Intern Palooza: Part Two

As a follow up to last week’s Intern Palooza: Part One, we have included a glimpse of what the second half of our new intern family will be up to during their summer at MOBI.

Chad, an Accounting and Finance major at Marian University, has joined the team as our new Accounting Intern. Over the next few months, Chad will assist the Accounting department as they roll out a series of software conversions that will integrate MOBI’s base accounting system with other departments’ functions.

Asad, a Business major in the Kelley School of Business Indianapolis, is bringing his talents to assist with all things Expense Management. From gathering and analyzing carrier data, to processing customer charges using MOBI tools, and creating monthly billing records–Asad will be an integral part in helping customers optimize their wireless spend over the next few months.

Sam, who just finished his second year of Nursing school at Ball State University, is spending his second summer in a row with the MOBI Logistics team. His primary role involves receiving, provisioning, and boxing devices. In addition to his exceptional work ethic, Sam is admired by the Logistics team for the impressive singing and dancing skills he showcases daily in the warehouse.

Surabhi, a Masters student in Computer Science at IUPUI, has joined the Custom Solutions team as the Web Development Intern. When she’s not working on perfecting her ping-pong skills, Surabhi spends her time at MOBI monitoring IT tickets submitted in the Portal by many of our government customer accounts.

Again, we are so excited to welcome this incredibly talented group of individuals to the MOBI family and look forward to all their contributions!

Customer Case Study: How an IT services company took control of mobility expenses

Mobility cost control was the primary driver behind this customer’s decision to employ managed mobility services. The customer outgrew what their internal tools could manage. In addition, a $100,000 international roaming bill made their insufficient management of costs painfully clear. MOBI devised a solution for the customer which included thorough expense management, helpdesk support for employees, and comprehensive reporting all powered by MOBI’s technology. As a result, the customer realized immediate hard cost savings, an increased level of employee mobility support, and much better visibility into their mobility program.

Intern Palooza: Part One

MOBI 2014 InternsLast week, MOBI welcomed a new, record-breaking class of eight interns for the summer.

After a good ol’ fashioned MOBI cookout to welcome the newbies and give them a chance to get to know one another, as well as other fellow coworkers, they settled in and got right to work on their respective teams.

Anusha and Mohammed joined the Product Development Team and will be dedicating their time to building internal project management tools for MOBI’s Development Team in an effort to drive innovation and solve customer issues more efficiently.

Breanna is analyzing how customers use the Portal’s reporting framework, as it is one of the most highly utilized features. Her insights will lead to the creation and implementation of features to make the reporting tool even more useful for admins.

Bryan, the IT/Communications Intern, will spend his time building WalkMe software into the Portal, which will “walk” admins and end-users through processes such as device orders, report building, etc. The goal in implementing this software is to help admins understand how to navigate the Portal better and make end-users more self-sufficient.

We are so ecstatic to have new team members and can’t wait to see all the amazing things they will accomplish in their time here.

Stay tuned for Intern Palooza: Part 2, to get the inside scoop on the rest of this talented class of interns!

15 Considerations When Evaluating BYOD

A couple years ago, we saw a rush to BYOD; then, last year, we saw an emergence of companies moving back to corporate liable. This year, the feeling regarding BYOD seems to be somewhere in the middle, which is probably where it should be.

Most organizations move to BYOD because they believe it will help reduce costs and the burden on their internal IT team to support the device. However, it seldom achieves either of these for reasons outlined below. It may, however, help with productivity, increase employee morale, and attract top talent. We’ve compiled a list of the top 15 elements you should consider when weighing the benefits and drawbacks of BYOD.

Super Heroes Need A Break Too

At the heart of every successful enterprise wireless program, there is an IT super hero that fights off the villains, ensures order and compliance, and provides the means for mobility to bring productivity to end-users. This is no small task, as they must be prepared to be called upon during an emergency at any time, with no notice, 24/7/365. These individuals can never disconnect or unplug from work since they are always on call, regardless if it is during their son’s first game to start on the varsity squad or on a much-deserved family vacation. You won’t recognize this individual by any special clothing like a cape or mask; rather, they carry the title of Wireless Administrator.

Everyday we hear a new story on how a Wireless Admin cannot escape the madness.  Recently, we learned of one that couldn’t even go to the bathroom without someone lurking outside waiting for help with their wireless question or issue. Unfortunately, in the real world, we cannot be super heroes forever. At some point, there is a realization that this work/life balance is neither sustainable nor healthy and we hit a breaking point. It is typically at this breaking point that organizations look at hiring another resource to manage the chaos or they look to find greater tools and solutions to enable their Wireless Admins to advance their wireless program into a best-in-class solution.

MOBI was built from the ground up based on patent pending technology and people to help relieve the wireless chaos that enterprises experience. Instead of feeling threatened by our team of wireless experts, Wireless Admins are enabled to focus on strategic initiatives to move their company forward with the business intelligence provided by MOBI. If your organization is looking for a boost and way to stay hyper-competitive, contact MOBI to learn how we can provide you a 5x efficiency gain and deliver this with an average net ROI of 9-14% in hard dollar wireless carrier savings.
