Last month we reported on seven trademarks that TELUS had applied for earlier this year, all of which had to do with “managed mobility services.” Today the meaning is more clear as the company has announced a joint venture with Vox Mobile called Managed Mobility Services.
Aimed at the growing Bring Your Own Device enterprise market, the services will have be offered under six categories: Advise, Acquire, Adapt, Assist, Administer, Analyze. The service aims to be an end-to-end product for companies to allow different devices and platforms securely onto their network, and administer them all from one place.
“With the flood of new smartphones, tablets, and mobile applications, enterprises are struggling to understand how to support, secure, and enable these devices. Now, enterprise customers will have more mobile device choice, increasing the satisfaction and productivity of their mobile users while offloading the IT burden and security risks,” says Tony Krueck, vice-president of Business Products & Services at TELUS.
Managed Mobility encompasses strategy consultation between TELUS and the company all the way to actually handling and supporting numerous devies across the network. The service also offers 24/7 help desk and payment/billing tools.
