Capabilities extend far beyond device logistics into personal device support, engineering services, user acquisition, cost reduction and data security for simpler daily management
INDIANAPOLIS – Feb. 26, 2015 — To better help enterprises manage complex mobile ecosystems, MOBI, provider of managed mobility software and services, today announced it has acquired ArchTech for further supporting the implementation and ongoing engineering of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) software. Drawing upon vast experience gained from working with more than a dozen EMM and Mobile Device Management (MDM) providers on behalf of customers in nearly every industry, MOBI’s bolstered engineering capabilities allow enterprises to use business-enabled mobile devices more fully, seamlessly and securely.
According to a study by 451 Research, 80 percent of enterprises would experience severely impacted business operations if a cloud outage occurred for just a single day. This demonstrates how critical availability and security are as must-have components for any hosting and cloud-services provider.
Advancing its commitment to ensuring cloud availability and data security, MOBI has integrated ArchTech’s engineering capabilities with its own Managed Mobility Service (MMS), which has a proven track record across areas such as help desk, expense management and device logistics. Together, cloud-based EMM software and MMS solutions let enterprises unlock mobility’s full potential while protecting data and supporting mobile users on an individual basis.
“While most MMS providers focus solely on device logistics, we believe today’s organizations need insightful guidance when it comes to actually implementing, engineering and administering EMM software,” said Mitch Black, President of MOBI. “By leveraging ArchTech’s technical expertise, our own engineering services team will be even further differentiated as a value-add resource.”
Coupled with MOBI’s agnostic approach to EMM providers, the added services allow enterprises to more effortlessly maintain their chosen EMM platform while supporting the overall goals of the mobile ecosystem. The EMM software and MMS offerings create a mobile environment where data is secure, users are supported, wireless service costs are managed and mobility information is clearly visible.
MOBI’s EMM services offering is made up of four main components:
·Implementation – MOBI provides seamless integration and unique configuration with an enterprise’s preferred EMM provider.
·Engineering – MOBI is powered by its team of network and engineering experts who have been in the EMM industry since the 2003 inception of MDM. This extensive experience set equips the team with capabilities to design management around data security, training, platforms, documentation, applications and updates.
·Support and Administration – End users can contact MOBI’s expert administrators 24/7 to work with a dedicated specialist on addressing all issues related to managing mobile devices.
·Integration – The MOBI platform is integrated with the most popular EMM software suites, enabling organizations to configure EMM controls from within the MOBI portal and administrators to perform all EMM functions through one tool.
“The truth is that many enterprises lack either the infrastructure or the technical expertise to use mobility in a strategic way, when in fact mobility is more critical to business processes than ever,” continued Black. “MOBI’s managed mobility software platform and engineering capabilities protect organizations’ data, optimize employees’ mobile accessibility to critical cloud-based applications, and help companies unlock the full potential of mobility to drive efficiency and productivity.”
MOBI provides software and services to help companies manage mobility. MOBI’s cloud-based software centralizes the management of mobile devices by integrating with wireless carriers, MDMs, corporate IT systems, and more. MOBI’s services help organizations plan for, save on, deploy, support, and decommission all mobile devices. As a result, MOBI’s customers achieve enhanced control, greater visibility, reduced costs, and increased efficiencies when managing mobile devices.
