Managed Mobility Service (MMS) providers are becoming an important asset to companies that are finding it difficult to manage mobility on their own. According to a recent press release by Blue Hill Research, manage mobility services are expected to deliver a three-year ROI of 184%. With that much potential for savings and increased efficiency, the third-party MMS provider cannot be overlooked.
There is plenty of uncertainty about the future of corporate IT. Some are even going as far as saying corporate IT will soon fade away. Others are calling for IT departments to stop throwing up roadblocks to productivity and shift their focus to enabling users to get more work done, more efficiently, from more places.
Every time we audit a potential client that is managing its own mobile devices, we uncover savings that are at least in the tens of thousands of dollars. We’re not saying this to toot our own horn. We’re merely pointing out the fact that, if your company is handling its own mobility needs, you’re leaving a significant amount of money on the table.
Keeping your entire company equipped with properly-provisioned, smoothly-functioning mobile devices can seem like a tall order. As your workforce becomes increasingly mobile, your inventory of devices is only getting larger. Your users’ needs are only getting more demanding.
But your IT team is up to the challenge, right?
Well, yes. Your company could handle mobility in-house. But many companies are finding that it’s more efficient and cost-effective to let someone else do it. This is called managed mobility services (MMS).
