2. MANAGED SERVICES
Support All Your Deployed Wireless Devices From One Place
It is hard to keep all of your employees up-to-date, let alone, their wireless devices. Device management offers a level of support that far and away surpasses the service offerings from our competitors. AMPM can provide remote support for your devices allowing them to be upgraded, re-commissioned, rebooted and even wiped without even leaving the operators hand.
Whether the devices are within your four walls or out in the field, AMPM can offer a suite of key services that can be included in your device management:
AMPM provides the first tier of technical support for your mobile devices. Should a device become inoperable in the field we can reboot the device, reload software and even reload the whole operating system without the device leaving the operators hands.
AMPM can provide compliance based security policies including lost/stolen lockdown or wipe, encryption key rotation and role based access rights management.
Customized reports can be developed that can provide key business intelligence on network availability, device performance, user process performance, supplier SLA achievement and more.
Firmware and application updates can be distributed to devices easily without the device needing to be returned to the IT Department. Any updates can be scheduled for most suitable time e.g. in-between shifts or overnight.
Included within the device management package is a clear register of devices including serial number, IP addresses, MAC addresses, locations etc. Know what devices you have and where they are at all times.
There are several different roads you can go down with remote device management:
AMPM will host, support and maintain your system, but you can have access anytime.
AMPM will install system on your server, support and maintain it.
The system is installed and AMPM will provide training, but it is maintained by you.
One thing that is clear from many market research reports is that the overall cost of ownership for a mobile device is predominantly taken up by the non-hardware cost of running those devices. Costs like device commissioning, update management and helpdesk support soon add up and unless managed, can spiral out of control leading to budgets being stretched or broken. Device management offers the opportunity to reduce those costs significantly while also enhancing the efficiency of your business by making your assets more available and reliable for a known cost.
