Enterprise Wireless Contracts and the Cost of Doing NOTHING

There are many ways to describe BYOD from a corporate finance perspective but there is a prevailing view is likely to be that by not paying for mobile devices, by doing nothing, corporations are saving money. There are many ways the concept can be flawed from an IT perspective, support issues, application rollout issues, and security issues. But the number one issue that wins the day in BYOD is that it’s free. If your mobile employees are not being reimbursed each month, if you are not spending dollars on data plans and if your business is not reliant on mobile employees to bring in revenue, then you stop reading here because BYOD is the right strategy for your business.

There are others that are offering consumers a means to select a carrier based on coverage and performance, but for the enterprise, Mobile Pulse is unique. As your reliance on mobility grows, we can assist, starting with Carrier Selection and contract negotiation of discounts and SLA’s.

While there are several companies that allow consumers to evaluate carrier coverage and performance (here is a link to several http://www.geeksugar.com/iPhone-Speed-Test-25928652) there is just one that is specifically for the enterprise market, with test, maps, deep analytics and detailed reports. Combining all the detailed analytics that IT would want with all the high level analysis that finance needs to make contractual decisions.

While you may be a BYOD shop today, Mobile Pulse can help you decide if BYOD is the right strategy for the future. And it could save you the cost of doing nothing.
