The pervasiveness of mobile devices is evident in almost every modern organization around the globe. The dramatic shift in mobile usage amongst employees have kept the companies thinking and rethinking about newer ways to implement enterprise mobility – in order to drive anytime, anywhere productivity and flexibility. On top of that, the rising BYOD culture has encouraged employees to use their own devices at work after connecting to a secured network. While on one hand employees would want to enjoy the productive working hours with the flexibility of using their own devices, the companies too would like to leverage this increased employee efficiency and reduced equipment costs. However, BYOD comes along with its own set of challenges like data security, user privacy, connectivity and device management.
Mobile Device Management is the answer
Today’s organizations face more than just the issues brought by employee-owned (BYOD) devices. The heterogeneity of enterprise endpoints, the varied platforms, multiple service providers and the different set of device features make it really difficult for the IT teams to keep a track of all devices used within the corporate environment. As a core component of Enterprise Mobility Management, Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a software that enables the IT admin to manage, monitor, secure and update employee-owned and company-provided devices after they are enrolled in the software platform. It offers a centralized console to keep a tab of all managed devices, enterprise apps, content while applying dynamic security policies and functionalities, remotely and in real time.

A Mobile Device Management without a world-class customer support is like a job half done. Customer support team makes the first impression of an MDM provider’s image and depth of sincerity towards their customers (both existing and prospective).

So, basically a top-notch customer support team ensures the following:

Customized support and scope of scalability: It is most desirable to work with an MDM solution provider whose customer support team goes the extra mile to make clients happy. Sometimes, a client may come with a request for a feature or capability that is not a part of the product at present. However, a good customer support agent will listen to the customer’s requirement, will analyze his/her concern and understand the business requirement. In an ideal situation, the agent will politely convey to the customer about the absence of this specific feature but will promise to get back to him with a solution in case it is possible to build this feature to meet his/her special business purpose.
Free online web training: An MDM software comes with a bundle of features, functionalities and capabilities for multiple use cases that an IT admin must be aware of like the back of his/her hand. A world class customer support team will ensure that the company IT admin is well adept with the software dashboard and all the processes starting from device onboarding, creating user profiles, applying device security policies, to tracking, managing, troubleshooting and wiping of devices.
