The success of the Android and IOS operating systems in the world of mobile devices has impacted the strategy of many IT organizations’ approach to supporting mobile devices. The ubiquity of these devices in the corporate environment, and users desire to use “tablet” devices as well as their mobile phones to access corporate applications, has required a re-assessment of how companies address mobility.
Votum entered the mobility market to provide acceptable computing platforms for employees at the edge of an enterprise who use automatic identification and data capture technologies such as RFID, GPS and sensor systems. These technologies are frequently utilized for asset tracking, asset management, field services, proof of delivery, scheduling, fleet management, inventory management, manufacturing and many other functions that are typically performed outside of the corporate headquarters.
In order to effectively cover mobility software, Votum addressed three individual areas:
- Mobility management software – remote management of the mobile device
- Mobility security software – ensuring the safety of the data on the device
- Mobility business applications – asset tracking, asset management, field services, proof
of delivery, scheduling, fleet management, inventory management, manufacturing and other functional components that typically have a mobile component outside of a company’s enterprise systems.
Today Votum partners with the industry leaders in each of these categories. We help our clients understand which of these various solutions will best satisfy their business needs. We also perform the analysis to determine integration requirements, perform the integration, perform the software loads, roll out the production solutions and offer support solutions such as help desk, tech support and break and fix.
