We’re back with the blog post you’ve been waiting on the edge of your seat for! Sarcasm aside, enterprise mobility leaders are truly excited about the potential Managed Mobility Services (MMS) partners like MOBI unlock.

TEM vendors

Managed Mobility Services (MMS) partners like MOBI are becoming more and more popular in the enterprise mobility space because of their comprehensive offerings compared to traditional TEM vendors. Wireless-focused MMS not only offers expense management potential, but software and services that increase complete program visibility and functionality as well.

Google Pixel

The world of technology is still buzzing about Made by Google. Over the course of the event, a number of innovative new devices were debuted. For enterprises however, no announcement was more exciting than the Google Pixel. This device is Google’s first attempt at developing a mobile phone completely in-house; Google is optimistic that its combination of hardware and software can reverse the recent enterprise migration towards iOS. Google is no stranger to enterprise mobility. The company partnered with outside manufacturers years ago to build the Pixel’s previous generation of devices, Nexus, but failed to make a significant impact at the enterprise level. After witnessing Apple’s breakneck growth in recent years, Google noticed one key difference in how both companies approached their mobile device creation. “If you really want to make a step-change difference, you have to design the software…

Your enterprise mobility effort isn’t secure until it includes a comprehensive device lifecycle strategy. Staying Safe Many businesses today depend on Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM)/Mobile Device Management (MDM) software to keep their physical devices and sensitive information safe. Through staging and kitting, devices are outfitted with a security solution before they ever fall into end-users’ hands, protecting your organization, ensuring policy compliance, and guaranteeing safe usage going forward. Legacy IT or TEM providers fail to fully integrate with your EMM/MDM, minimizing its impact and making it difficult to implement and manage at an enterprise level.[tweet this] Legacy IT or TEM providers fail…

Or are these devices an afterthought addressed by haphazardly pieced-together databases and software acquisitions? As your enterprise inevitably moves towards a mobility-centric future, relying on a wireline-focused solution to manage these devices becomes more damaging and illogical with each passing day. Ordering   For companies using a legacy solution, the frustration of managing mobile devices starts at step one. tweet this For companies using a legacy solution, the frustration of managing mobile devices starts at step one. Individual employee orders are easy enough to handle, but issues arise when bulk orders or large deployments come into play. Wireline-focused solutions simply aren’t built to accommodate these requests, and thus struggle to process them correctly and…
