PiiComm Extends Managed Mobility Services To Consumer Smartphones and Tablets
Ottawa, ON (March 23, 2016) – PiiComm, the industry leading provider of wireless and mobile workforce solutions, is extending its services beyond rugged industrial mobile devices. The firm is now providing support for consumer grade devices including laptops, tablets and smartphones.
Recent mobility trends include greater adoption of smartphones and consumer devices in use with Line of Business applications. These tools improve productivity for workers on the move.
Failure Rates Up To 50%
With device damage rates of 50% not uncommon, supporting mobile devices often overwhelms traditional help desk resources. A centralized, distributed spares management strategy is key to ensuring mobile users are as productive as they can be. PiiComm has developed a Smartphone Management Services program to pick up where the manufacturer’s warranty leaves off. This delivers full end-to-end protection for devices.
“The fact remains that devices will always need to be repaired or have diagnostics performed on them. To ensure we can accommodate the changing needs of our clients we have expanded these services towards consumer products and smartphones. This is to simplify the mobile device management process. It also enables businesses to consult a one stop shop for all their mobile management needs.” per Shawn Winter, PiiComm’s President.
Smartphones and tablets are commonplace in today’s businesses. They deliver to employees the power to be mobile which is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. The PiiComm Smartphone Management Services offerings allows clients the flexibility of selecting a feature-rich base package. In addition they can choose additional “a-la-cart” services and so consequently align with the organization’s business needs and objectives.
PiiComm’s dedicated support team, the Mobile Service Desk, supports thousands of devices on a daily basis. They also provide lifecycle management, in addition to asset tracking for these devices. The Mobile Service Desk acts as the single point of contact for all of a business’s mobile repairs. It includes diagnostics and asset management requirements, providing enhanced reliability mixed with peace of mind solution support.
