Mobile Device Management (MDM) Solutions

mobile device management solutions

The number of connected devices owned at the enterprise level continues to expand at a breathtaking pace, providing a growing challenge for IT leaders to keep security, efficiency, and costs under control.

Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions act as a centralized command center for an entire network of devices. It’s never been easier to monitor, secure, and update thousands of smartphones, barcode scanners, and tablets all at once. Here is some of the data you can track:

  1. Device Owner Name
  2. Real-Time Device Location
  3. Serial Number and Model of Device
  4. Device Operating System
  5. Mobile Applications Installed
  6. Device Storage
  7. Remaining Battery Life
  8. Battery Health
  9. Network Connectivity Strength
  10. Login and Password
  11. Configuration

With MDM, equipment inventory tracking is saving companies a massive amount of money and headache. Device loss due to theft and negligence is not the risk it once was. Employee personal app usage can provide feedback into time management. Battery health is a good indicator of how well the device is being used. And that massive migration to the latest Android OS? Deploy it with one update within the MDM software.
