Vancouver's Telus and Toronto's Vox Mobile have jointly launched a suite of end-to-end managed mobility services. Touted as the only such offer from a Canadian wireless carrier, the suite is a "complete service offering that manages an enterprise’s mobile infrastructure and devices from procurement to payment, leveraging a growing trend in enterprises to adopt Bring your Own Device policies."
“Mobile device management software has now made it possible to sync new mobile devices across multiple platforms, but there’s so much more to consider than just synchronizing email,” said Tony Krueck, vice-president of Business Products and Services at Telus. “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.”
“We’re excited about the opportunity to work with Telus to deliver on their vision of the Future Friendly Enterprise as it relates to mobility,” added Kris Snyder, CEO of Vox Mobile. "We’re confident that Telus’ national relationships and managed services experience coupled with Vox Mobile’s end-to-end mobile expertise will be a great fit for enterprises in Canada."
“Enterprise mobility's importance is growing rapidly, and the complexity is daunting for many large organizations," noted Tony Olvet, group vice-president of research at IDC Canada. "Telus and Vox Mobile together offer a well thought-out suite of services and support to help Canadian businesses tackle this strategic element of IT management."
