Xyratex is a great example of a customer who is thinking about their mobility and wireless usage in a program-oriented fashion
San Francisco, CA (Vocus) September 15, 2010
Visage Mobile, provider of the MobilityCentral application for enterprise mobility management, today announced that Xyratex, a leading provider of modular enterprise class data storage subsystems and storage process technology, has selected Visage Mobile’s MobilityCentral software as a service (SaaS) solution to manage its mobile usage, plans and spend.
With over 300 mobile devices across its U.S. employee base, managing wireless carrier plans and mobile usage was beginning to put a serious strain on Xyratex’s resources. Since implementing MobilityCentral, Xyratex has been able to provide executive management with reports that offer unprecedented visibility into corporate mobile usage and spend compared to budget.
“Since engaging with Visage Mobile, Xyratex has developed individual phone alternatives for top spenders to use while traveling, reducing our overall cost by thousands of dollars each month,” said Janice O'Brien, senior director of finance for Xyratex International, Inc. “We have also been able to roll out a company-wide cell phone usage policy, which has proven effective in keeping costs down as well.”
Xyratex also utilizes MobilityCentral’s central location device tracking software, which combines devices from all plans allowing human resources and IT to see all allocated devices per user in a single view. With this intelligence, Xyratex is able to eliminate or redistribute unused devices and/or plans, saving money and enabling greater visibility into corporate mobility use.
“Xyratex is a great example of a customer who is thinking about their mobility and wireless usage in a program-oriented fashion,” said Bzur Haun, president of Visage Mobile. “They are not only tracking mobile budgets and overages, but have made mobility an integral part of corporate policy, spend and visibility, which has allowed them to save both resources and money.”
Visage Mobile’s MobilityCentral SaaS solution tracks how many devices a company has, which employee has what device and how much the company spends each month on wireless plans. With greater mobile management, organizations can significantly reduce costs by eliminating wireless overspend and reducing the time and effort required to process carrier invoices and track inventory. Once a company’s mobile program is transparent, MobilityCentral can also assist in managing corporate policies and ensuring compliance.
