There is no denying that mobile devices have dramatically impacted how we do business. The prevailing question these days is more along the lines of how are we to manage these devices?
There are plenty of tools available to the modern IT department, work with a trusted partner to determine the right asset control for YOUR organization.
To keep it simple - tons. We're going to break down two main categories. MDM - Mobile Device Management & MDS - Mobile Device Support.
Mobile Device Management, or MDM is primarily considered security software.
MDM solutions allow you to remotely secure, monitor, and generally manage mobile devices.
Create User-Groups for Software/Application installation and device restrictions.
Segment phone data to remotely locate, lock, and if necessary wipe devices that have been lost or stolen
Mobile Device Support, or MDS features a centralized portal where businesses can manage the services their organizations utilize, including:
A consolidated inventory of each device, its DID, location, user, and carrier info
Replace devices and file tickets with device manufacturers and carriers with ease
A single point of contact for the businesses IT department, for all carriers and device types
MDS solutions pay your wireless bills for you so you never get a late charge. Questions about your invoices are answered by a dedicated account manager.
More than just general ledger coding, MDS ensures each employee is on the correct plan based on their usage
Ongoing plan optimization and reporting. MDS solutions continuously monitor usage and invoices for discrepancies and anomalies. A proactive approach to management.
Because MDM doesn’t handle the business management functions that MDS does, they work quite well in tandem. Most MDM users appreciate the additional level of help desk support, order fulfillment and plan optimization that an MDS solution provides.
