SAN DIEGO, CA, May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – SOTI Inc., world-leader in the enterprise Mobile Device Management (MDM) space, has proudly announced a strategic partnership with new breed, enterprise mobility management provider, eMOBUS. This alliance combines second-to-none 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.
“SOTI MobiControl’s powerful remote control and management features enable IT administrators to access crucial information on a device. This alliance between market-leaders SOTI and eMOBUS enables enterprises to manage mobility end-to-end, including costs, devices, provisioning, support, security and applications,” said Ron Hassanwalia, VP of Sales & Marketing, SOTI Inc.
Walter Wong, EVP of Sales, eMOBUS states, “SOTI and eMOBUS allow enterprises to enable a smart and secure BYOD strategy. SOTI MobiControl allows all devices to access company resources securely, while eMOBUS streamlines the BYOD process by allowing companies’ end-users to purchase their own devices on a personal credit card, while the company maintains crucial control of the wireless carrier services that power the device on a corporate account.”
Added Wong, “Imagine your VP of Global Sales travels internationally and forgets to update to the appropriate data and voice plan before departing. SOTI MobiControl would recognize the device was roaming, communicate with the eMOBUS platform, and automatically adjust the plan with the wireless carrier. This level of automation prevents costly overage charges and eliminates resource-intensive, IT fire drills.
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.”
