With more than 400,000 employees serving clients in 170 countries, this technology and consulting firm, and MOBI customer, required help managing a complex and unique mobility environment.

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!
