What is Enterprise Mobility?

Enterprise mobility is a growing trend whereby businesses offer their employees remote working options. This can be done through the use of mobile phones, tablets, laptops and cloud-based technology that allows employees to work anywhere at any time. Enterprise mobility has grown in recent years thanks to a shift in the traditional business model. Employees are now demanding greater flexibility in their working life’s, seeking a better work-life balance, increased flexibility regarding working hours and the ability to work from home. By embracing enterprise mobility businesses can attract the top talent, increase current employee productivity and employee efficiency. Many organisations are currently locked into a ‘bundled’ mobile package whereby the cost of the hardware and the cost of airtime are bundled into one cost. The effect of this is the cost of the handset is essentially hidden within your monthly bill leaving the illusion that the handset is ‘free’. In reality, this isn’t the case as you’ll probably be paying for the handset with a hidden charge of around 30% on top. We allow our customers to break free from the ‘bundled package’ that network providers are offering today. We accelerate the unbundling process and can provide benefits such as lowering your total cost of ownership, greater transparency and increased flexibility.

Unbundling your devices with CHG-MERIDIAN can save you up to 48.23% (£631.84 per handset)

Preparation Phase

It's the little things that can sometimes make a big difference. We recognise that at CHG-MERIDIAN, which is why we ensure the devices can be prepared according to each individual customers requirements.

Enterprise Mobility FAQ's

What is unbundling?

Unbundling essentially means you buy the handset and tariff plan separately rather than it being rolled into one monthly price.

But what if I have a tech fund?

Tech funds are not a sustainable model, and as such we have seen them abandoned in other countries. Network providers have typically used tech funds as a means to attract and retain customers with ‘free money’. Of course, it’s not free money, and there is no real added value here as the price is again hidden within the tariff package. We have already seen customers move away from this model as it doesn’t provide organisations with the transparency and flexibility that they are demanding now.

What is MDM?

Mobile device management or MDM for short is an essential part of enterprise mobility management. MDM is a type of security software that allows organisations to manage, secure and enforce policies on employee’s mobile phones. Leading MDM providers include AirWatch, MobileIron and Citrix. MDM software can often be combined with additional security tools such as Mobile Application Management to ensure comprehensive security for mobile devices.

Why is having a mobility strategy in place important for a business?

Mobile phones are generally the quickest evolving pieces of technology on the market today. Having a mobility strategy in place ensures that your technology is always up-to-date, which can result in increased employee productivity by providing the best possible tools for the job. Furthermore, this shorter lifecycle means that devices are being moved in and out of the business more quickly than a laptop or PC. It’s imperative that organisations can keep track of and manage these assets, their usage patterns and their costs effectively, which an end-to-end mobility strategy can help to do. Of course, mobile phones are liable to damage, and therefore an end-to-end mobility strategy is not complete without repair services. This can be provided in the form of a break-fix or direct replacement capacity agreement. There is no extra burden placed on the end user here, all they simply have to do is take their broken device to the service desk where they receive a direct replacement. The broken device is then taken to a logistics centre whereby it is repaired and placed back into the customers stock pool. All of which can be underpinned by an asset and contract management system
