Mobile device management provider SOTI Inc. has formed a strategic partnership with new breed enterprise mobility management firm eMOBUS. This alliance combines MDM capabilities with real-time control of user spend, security, and support in one package.
Deployed in days and easy-to-use, eMOBUS reduces mobile costs up to 40% while lowering impact on IT resources, a far leap ahead of traditional, standalone, TEM tools which require several months and countless resources for deployment and ongoing administration. In addition, the SOTI and eMOBUS partnership goes beyond newly touted R-TEM competitors by not only notifying organizations of potential overage incidents instantaneously, but automatically implementing the necessary changes with the wireless carriers to rectify these incidents as or before they occur.
This saves organizations precious time and always ensures the lowest cost, even if reports or notifications are missed. Further streamlining of mobile device deployment is also possible allowing for automatic selection of device MDM profiles in SOTI MobiControl as new orders are processed through the eMOBUS platform, ensuring uniform implementation and eliminating multiple steps.
Tony Rizzo, editor of Mobile Enterprise Magazine, sums it up in his April 2012 article entitled The Hidden Enterprise Tablet Challenge: Managing Wireless Data Costs: "It is critical for enterprises to bring their TEM platforms into the 21st century, and to ensure that those TEM platforms are properly enabled to deal with mobile devices and tablets flooding the market today. Integration with MDM capabilities, especially as part of a TEM package, is also critical to ensure policy management enforcement and to have full control over both tablet and smartphone wireless data usage."
