Columbia, MD (PRWEB) May 25, 2010
BoxTone(R) today announced the arrival of the first automated software solution for proactive Mobile Service Management (MSM), enabling enterprises, government agencies and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to maintain continuous optimal mobile performance at the lowest cost and risk.
Powered by patented SmartMP™ technology with embedded IT Service Management (ITSM) best practices, BoxTone’s MSM solution delivers a single unified mobile management console and automated software modules to address the entire mobile lifecycle. Organizations will now have centralized control of Apple iPhone and iPad, BlackBerry, Google Android, Nokia Symbian and Windows Mobile devices; BlackBerry Enterprise Server, Microsoft ActiveSync and Good Technology mobile connectivity platforms; and a wide variety of enterprise mobile applications.
“Mobility has become the biggest business-impacting technology wave since the Internet as companies seek to increase speed to revenue, tap new revenue streams, increase employee productivity and enhance customer engagement,” said BoxTone CEO, Alan Snyder. “But the explosion of different mobile devices, including employee-liable models, new platforms and diverse applications has dramatically increased complexity for enterprise IT. With the announcement of our Mobile Service Management solution, BoxTone delivers the most comprehensive vision and solution for mobility management.”
As part of its MSM solution, BoxTone is also announcing an Early Access Program for additional enterprise-connected mobile applications and services including Google Apps for Mobile, Lotus Notes Traveler, Zimbra and Good Technology. The company will also be hosting a Webinar on June 23 at 11:00 a.m. EDT to introduce this new solution to the market.
Moving far beyond point-product Mobile Device Management (MDM) tools -- which are limited to the initial activation, provisioning, configuration and change tasks for a device -- BoxTone’s unique MSM solution spans all the critical aspects of enterprise mobility management, delivering a central point of control with critical MDM, Mobile User Management (MUM) and Mobile Application Performance Management (MAPM) capabilities. When it’s time to connect a smartphone to the enterprise BoxTone takes over, managing and supporting the end-to-end mobile lifecycle while continuously maintaining optimal mobile performance without the need for additional support staff or deep mobility expertise.
“With the latest announcements of next generation capabilities for BlackBerry, iPhone and Android, the flood of new devices coming to market and the employee-liable trend in the enterprise, it is imperative that companies act now to perfect mobile management,” added Snyder. “What’s more, our latest survey of more than 375 enterprise mobile IT professionals shows that 71 percent of enterprises plan to grow their mobile deployments by more than 20 percent this year, with more than 50 percent adding employee-liable devices and adding applications beyond email. In the face of this multi-vector growth and complexity, we’re dedicated to helping organizations achieve a trouble-free mobile environment so they can ensure maximum gain from mobility.”
