Asentinel, a leading provider of modern Managed Mobility Services (MMS), today announced that it has significantly expanded the white label partner program for its MMS platform, which provides companies with a simple and fast way to manage their mobile user spend and support. MMS is unique in delivering near-real-time usage data analysis, and streamlines carrier change management while providing basic mobile device management (MDM) security functionality.
• More than 600 companies have now deployed Asentinels’ MMS platform to manage their mobility programs• Lines under management grew an average of nearly 40 percent per partner in the past year, with some partners doubling in line count.
“MMS offers numerous benefits to solution providers wanting to grow their mobility practice, especially in the SMB space, where companies with a couple hundred to a few thousand devices are largely underserved by legacy telecom expense management solutions,” said Moe Arnaiz, Asentinel’ SVP, Mobility. “Our white label MMS offering gives providers the fastest route to customer revenue and satisfaction, and proven growth opportunities with a tool that can be deployed in hours and is easy to scale. We are pleased to be working with so many quality partners to bring MMS to our rapidly expanding mutual customer base.”
Traditional legacy telecom expense management (TEM) solutions can have long deployment cycles and manages expenses after the fact. In contrast, the MMS platform modernizes managed mobility services, providing a significantly better customer experience. Providers benefit from MMS’s ability to automate previously manual processes that were difficult to manage, allowing them to support 8,000 – 10,000 lines per employee while providing the ability to extract valuable billing and mid-cycle usage data from carriers on demand.
For the end customer, MMS provides one seamless platform for ordering, reporting, invoice processing, service optimization and support, and simplifies BYOD deployment by leaving device choice to users and all other policy-based plan, payment and support management under company control. Unique near real-time data acquisition and analysis abilities ensure that companies can avoid costly usage patterns such as international roaming and excessive data consumption before these unexpected expenses hit their bills. MMS is also built for the cloud, easily integrating with human resources, accounting, service desk management and other systems.
According to the research firm Gartner Group, managed mobility software is crucial to the delivery of managed mobility services, in the same way that the use of IT operations and service management software is used in the delivery of broader IT managed services and outsourcing contracts.
A VDC Research survey of SMB and large enterprises showed that large enterprises are increasingly hard-pressed to exploit mobile technologies as a means to drive employee satisfaction, productivity and competitive advantage. VDC also noted that, with fewer resources and less sophisticated mobile initiatives, the SMB market for mobile managed services is comparatively untapped. “Yet as more advanced mobile applications enter the market, we see competitive strategies emerge as the leading driver behind mobile managed services adoption,” the report said. “At minimum, support of flexible BYOD policies expands the technological resources available to employees while demanding little in the way of capital expenses.”
