The decision to deploy mobile devices to your field
workforce takes a lot of deliberation. Which type of
mobile device is best? What software solution will accomplish
your goals? How will the solution be rolled out?
What training will your workers need? And the list goes
on. However, one consideration many companies overlook
during this deliberation process is how the devices
will be managed once they're deployed. While MDM may
seem like a small piece of the overall mobile solution puzzle,
it is an important one — and the repercussions of not
considering MDM during your deployment can be
costly. From securing mobile data and pushing out software
updates over the air to remotely diagnosing issues
and reducing device downtime, the benefits of MDM
are clear. MasTec is one company that is experiencing those benefits firsthand.
