The fall of 2017 is iPhone 8 season. The device, which is rumored to be announced in early September, is the next step in mobile devices being equipped to handle the tasks typically relied on by a laptop. The iPhone 8 is rumored to have 3GB of RAM (1 GB more than the iPhone 7s) and top line models will have 512 GB of storage space. It wasn’t that long ago full PCs touted 4GB RAM and 500GB hard drives. Apple knows that companies need to empower their teams to take their work with them out of the office, and complete tasks with even more efficiency than they would at a desk.
The question that companies must consider is how are you going to deal with getting these devices into the hands of your employees? Those with a corporate device policy in place who lean on their IT teams to handle mobile device management should expect downtime in production, as the IT team shifts focus away from their traditional administrative and support tasks. Instead, they are trying to order, ship, and set up devices for employees.
A third-party managed mobility services provider (MMS) like Wireless Analytics takes the device deployment burden off your internal IT department and handles the entire mobility lifecycle process. This frees up your IT team to handle the tasks they’re best at and allows your company to enjoy major cost savings and staff augmentation benefits.
As a help desk provider, we’ve always seen a large influx of tickets whenever a new iPhone is released. Is your internal IT team going to have the time and energy to address these tickets?

Recently, we managed an iPad Pro deployment for a client – where the client counted on us for every step of the procurement, provisioning/kitting, deployment, and support phase.
