Cloud computing, collaboration convergence and the need for access-on-the-go have driven a surge in mobility technologies. With mobile devices extending the reach of the enterprise and taking it to the street, the door is wide open for security vendors and mobile device management (MDM) providers with the right solutions to penetrate the market.
Burkhart Dental, a provider of equipment, repairs, supplies and consulting for dentists, recently chose eMOBUS (News - Alert) and its Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution to address its mobility challenges. eMOBUS provides a simple and fast way for companies to manage mobile user spend, security and support from a single platform.
The solution combines the convenience of self-managed “bring your own device” (BYOD) purchases with the economy of corporate-billed service plans. The EMM solution offers a hybrid of BYOD and Corporate Liable (CL) models: the individual can purchase their phone of choice with a personal credit card. However, the service is centrally managed on the company's wireless account. This easy-to-use solution also provides the ideal foundation for scaling to higher numbers of users and devices, and to deploy device-level management capabilities including MDM security, access control and app management when needed.
According to Burkhart's IT Manager, Bryce Kerker, not only have its major problems been solved, but eMOBUS' work in the first month paid for their services for the first year.
Mobility was "becoming a major cost center...with 30-40 percent of our team managing their own plans, having employees fill out reimbursement forms, fax or e-mail in their bills, and have accounting process these claims was a very expensive endeavor," said Kerker, in a statement. "And the wireless phone bills were basically a black hole of incongruous information. eMOBUS deployed its solution within days, and was very willing to fix our problems right off the bat.”

By merging the highest impact features of Telecom Expense Management (TEM), MDM and wireless help desk onto one easy-to-use tool, backed with real live support you can talk to, eMOBUS' pioneering EMM solution lets organizations quickly and easily solve their most relevant mobility challenges.
"The EMM solution has added clarity and transparency that showed where we were overpaying, allowing us to reduce voice, data and text plans costs by one-third with one carrier…our cost-savings are now more direct and quantifiable," said Kerker.
The EMM platform enables customers to manage their mobile device spend, reporting, security and support from a single, simple user interface. They can reduce and prevent overspending on service plans and move/add/change requests, and automate all invoice processing for hundreds or thousands of lines.
"Companies like Burkhart, with a wide array of mobile devices, are ideal for EMM," said eMOBUS CEO Moe Arnaiz. "By being able to deliver a solution that taps the benefits of the BYOD model—no hardware costs, for example—with an easier-to-manage CL model, EMM is a go-to solution for any company that depends on mobility for success."
