Wireless mobile device management, why your company should outsource to third party experts


Why should your company outsource the analysis and management of your mobility
devices to an impartial 3rd party industry expert? As business workforces become more mobile, and as wireless devices continue to become
more prevalent, it is inevitable that most businesses continue to increase their reliance on wireless mobile devices, such as cell phones, IPADs and other tablets, and laptops to increase their productivity. The use of wireless devices is now essential for state-of-the-art communications and productivity, for most successful businesses; however, the cost of managing mobile devices and services is about 10 times higher than managing traditional wire line communications. Expenses for wireless services have now surpassed budgets for wire line communications. For most enterprise businesses, the budget each year for wireless communication
increases, while the budgets for wired communication
decrease. The wireless budgets for most businesses are completely out of control. Future expenses for wired communication are
relatively predictable, whereas, budgets for wireless communications are wildly
unpredictable. 44% of all businesses concede that they have no formal plan in place, and 10% admit that they have no group within their company that is centrally responsible for managing their wireless mobility devices. Lack of a better plan, has led many companies to delegate the responsibility for managing their wireless devices and services to their IT departments. This leads to two major issues. First, IT personnel commonly do not have the
time, or the expertise, needed to effectively negotiate wireless efficiency with wireless carriers. IT personnel are often very skilled in managing the wired bandwidth needs of a
business, such as wired internet access, internal bandwidth networks, networks between remote company locations, and centralized data storage. Most of these people have many years of training and experience, and are experts in this field. However, most have never worked for a wireless
carrier, and have received no formal training for maximizing wireless resources. IT personnel are usually not experts in dealing with wireless carriers. A major priority of wireless carriers is to obtain as much money as possible from each of the businesses they “serve”. This priority often quietly overrides token, perceived, efforts to provide business customers the most efficient plans, at the lowest possible prices. Wireless carriers invest significant resources into well planned strategies for extracting the most money possible from their customers. These priorities include upselling at every
possible opportunity, but do not include sincere, on-going, proactive analysis of customer usage, to seek opportunities to reduce customer expense, and increase communication efficiencies for
each customer. The ability to effectively negotiate with wireless carriers is a unique expertise that results from years of experience in dealing with wireless carriers. This expertise is not commonly possessed by
most IT personnel. The second important issue that results from delegating the responsibility for wireless communication to the IT department, is the reality of opportunity cost. All efforts by IT staff to learn to effectively negotiate with wireless
carriers, often through trial and error communications with the wireless carrier, distracts IT personnel proportionately, from important IT needs. In this time of reduced spending by most businesses, IT departments are often spread extremely
thin. Redirecting IT staff away from essential IT
responsibilities, by assigning them to manage wireless devises
and services, can hinder IT effectiveness, and reduce the IT department’s ability to proactively contribute to the core mission of the business.
