Outsourcing mobile device support can reduce costs and allow you to concentrate on your business’ core competencies.
Utilizing mobile solutions can make a company more efficient and productive, but managing a fleet of mobile devices can be complex and costly. Hardware must be maintained; applications updated; wireless plans negotiated; and every three or four years enterprises wind up going through a new evaluation and procurement process to make sure the solution stays current.
Increasingly, enterprises are turning to managed mobility services (MMS) in an effort to outsource as much of this overhead as possible. Last year, research firm Gartner published its first MMS Magic Quadrant report, predicting that MMS revenue could grow from $500 million in 2013 to $3.4 billion by 2016.
