Is Your Enterprise Mobility Award Worthy?

By Lori Castle, Editor in Chief — May 16, 2014

You built the business case; selected the platform; engaged a partner and deployed a mobile solution. Employee adoption is great. ROI is being realized. Internal validation is great, but how about industry recognition too?

The Mobilizer Awards provide a chance to acknowledge your team’s hard work, highlight your organization’s success and show off to your peers.

Judged by a panel of mobile industry executives and analysts, the Awards honor public and private enterprises across all industries that have transformed their businesses by deploying wireless mobile solutions.

Categories include: Field Service, Business Applications, Enterprise-Wide Mobility Deployment and an overall Innovation winner will be selected from among the entries.

Winner, Winner…
Organizations of all sizes from many industries have won in the past. It’s not about being a big brand, though many large enterprises have won, it’s about the value of your deployment and how you communicate your story.

For example, when it came to overall innovation, ABM Industries won in 2013. They are a large company, with 115,000 employees, but this makes mobility a greater challenge. The company needed a scalable mobility model to meet its goals of providing access to work order data, reducing employee attrition and increasing contract revenue, all while exceeding client expectations.

On the other hand, Demmer Corporation, a company of 350 employees, won for its mastering of enterprise-wide mobility. It wasn’t so much the number of the employees, but the scope of the processes that had to be mobilized.

The company is an equipment manufacturer, serving the defense, aerospace, automotive, transportation and energy industries. Each plant is subject to inspections and safety regulations. Multiple inspectors filled out hundreds of documents as part of the process. Such a paper-intensive nature impacted resources and the bottom line, especially when manually entered information was erroneous and not detected for weeks.

What was so impressive? How about $1 million annual cost savings? Other stories from 2013 were just as noteworthy. 

If after reading these stories, and perhaps those from 2012 and past, and you are saying to yourself: “Our company beats that…” What are you waiting for? There is still time to enter.

Please note, developers, vendors, resellers, service providers, PR firms, and other mobile technology solutions providers are NOT eligible for awards, but may submit on behalf of their customers.

The Fine Print
Initiatives should mainly focus on employee-facing mobility, but may have consumer/customer-facing aspects as well. However, mobile deployments solely focused on the consumer will not be considered.

The Mobilizer Awards are presented annually to end user enterprises that have successfully deployed a mobile solution and can show ROI and/or demonstrate positive changes in business processes or strategies as a result of the deployment.

Entries from all vertical markets are welcome, including public/government agencies. All entries MUST be submitted for an end user enterprise. Developers, vendors, resellers, service providers, PR firms, and other mobile technology solutions providers are NOT eligible for awards.

Developers, vendors, resellers, service providers, PR firms, and other mobile technology solutions providers may submit an entry form on behalf of their customers. However, we require full contact information for the enterprise being nominated. Failure to include this information will automatically disqualify your entry.

All entrants must be approved by the end user/customer for printing in Mobile Enterprise magazine with the understanding that the winning case studies will require interviews and discussions of corporation information.

Full details on eligibility; Entry form. The deadline for submission is May 30, 2014.
