Enabling a winning mobile enterprise….

-Run Better, Run Mobile –

The post PC era is emerging fast and customers, employees, suppliers and partners are driving the need to mobilise business processes. Unwiring your business is a new imperative with a demanding set of new challenges. Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) is evolving as a driving force and key enabler for greater productivity, reduced cost and lower total cost of ownership of enterprise resources. It can also be a costly if you don’t strategically approach its implementation.

You need a manageable and scalable mobility strategy underpinned by a common mobility platform that is future-proof, whilst allowing you to quickly build and deploy applications to run your business operations on-the-go. This means you need to start with the big picture in mind while you scale up and mobilise the various operational functions throughout your whole enterprise. As business, technology, devices, regulations and your organisations change over time, it is important the mobile solutions you select are flexible.

At the implementation level there are many challenges to evaluate including the selection and management of devices, the development, deployment and management of applications and the security solutions that protect your devices, content, applications and intellectual property.

Future-proofing and scalability can only be managed by choosing experienced vendors and mobile specialists that have deployed solutions similar to your needs. This experienced proven track record means that you save time and money in scoping and executing your mobile strategy.

That’s why we partner with SAP to deliver best-in-class mobile workforce solutions backed by futuristic innovation and technology where the sky is the limit. SAP Mobile Solutions are agnostic which means that even if you are not an SAP customer or have not invested in an SAP end-to-end solution, you can still access the power of their mobility platform and Mobile App Solutions.
