Example Savings Trends Infographic – 900 lines or less

One of the most common objections to buying Managed Mobility Services (MMS) is that companies think they’ll achieve savings the first month and then the return on investment goes away. We at MOBI know that continual optimization of wireless expenses is both required to keep costs down and overtime additional savings are found. This is all on top of the soft cost savings and efficiencies gained from other aspects of MMS. We figured the best way to prove this was to look at three real examples of wireless programs and their hard costs per user per month over time.

MOBI Announces Partnership with IBM

Like many software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies, MOBI initially started driving its go-to-market strategy via direct sales from 2009 to 2012. This sales process is natural, as the internal team knew the solution and how to effectively sell it better than anyone. Early on, MOBI was successful in landing many blue-chip clients as a boutique mobility software and services company. In many cases, MOBI competed for this business and won against incumbent TEM providers migrating into mobility (this is prior to the MMS industry effectively being named). Quite simply, mobility was the technology trend for corporate IT, and MOBI’s laser-focus on mobility delivered the software and services to solve these new IT complexities. Continue reading

The RFP Alternative

Since the inception of MOBI, our solutions have been vetted against our competitors’ through the dreaded RFP. These come in all shapes, sizes, and forms. Some come from prospects that we have spent months, or even years, courting and educating. Others come out of the blue because an organization was trying to find “X” number of respondents to their RFP. They range in size from 10 to 75+ pages and ask a range of random questions.

We have always questioned the effectiveness of the RFP. Candidly, we have started to respond to less of them, with the eventual hope of not answering them altogether, and instead focused on working with our prospective customers to ensure they and we both understand what type of mobility management program works for their organization.
