Armed with a couple world-class developers, our best guess at market research, and a vision to transform the way companies manage connected devices, we moved fast. Looking back, it’s easy to see how this attitude towards the user ignited innovation as part of our culture. Innovation became the key by-product of focusing on the user—never forced, measured, or incentivized, it was just something we did to improve the customer experience. Breaking away from the pack MOBI is often compared to legacy Telecom Expense Management (TEM) providers within the Managed Mobility Services (MMS) category. But, we are not a TEM solution. We set ourselves apart with our software-first enterprise mobility solutions. Most MMS vendors exist as an extension of a legacy…

Is the IoT About to Cause a Catastrophic Traffic Jam?

January 8, 2016 by Michael Browning II
