Mobile Content Management (MCM) Software: What Companies Need to Know

    Share On

    With an increasingly mobile workforce, companies are managing expectations of the knowledge workers to access important enterprise information while on-the-go, from anywhere, any device, anytime. Nevertheless, real-time information-consumption drives effective, precise, and quicker business decisions while enhancing overall customer experience and organizational growth. As enterprises are embracing a mobile-first culture, telecommuting is becoming a fast-paced phenomenon wherein remote and mobile employees need to have real-time electronic access to necessary company data and documents.

    What is Mobile Content Management (MCM) and why it became so important?

    According to an IDG Enterprise Study, 82% of people who the company interviewed agreed to the fact employees do use managed or unmanaged devices to complete their office tasks. The situation takes a haphazard and impetuous shape when companies fail to offer adequate enterprise solutions to share, consume, and distribute company data with a secure and managed process, leading to a tendency of using cloud-based file sync, store and share services, exposing company data to multiple data security threats. This becomes an outright headache for the IT department that struggles to gain control of these content silos laying fragmented in different formats outside their networks.

    This is where Mobile Content Management (MCM) plays a vital role. An enterprise-level Mobile Content Management software is gaining momentum across companies that have gained some extent of proficiency in leveraging business mobility driven by a remote workforce.  As an imperative aspect of Enterprise Mobility Management, Mobile Content Management can be defined as a tool or a set of technologies that allows the IT and the employees to securely access, share and distribute enterprise content and critical data across all managed devices, from anywhere and at any time.  

    A well-defined MCM strategy is a win-win situation for both the IT team and the device users. A secured, uniform and managed procedure will ensure that the mission-critical company data, customer information, and other crucial content will stay in line with the company security policies, whether they are stored in the managed devices or are in transit. On the other hand, the real-time availability of important smartphone-driven content will enable employees to get their job done with speed and precision, thereby driving data protection and employee productivity at the same time.

    How Mobile Content Management (MCM) Software Works as an Add-on Feature?

    Companies belonging to industrial sectors like retail, hospitality, logistics, shipping, and transportation ideally have a fleet of remote workers with access to smartphones and company details like customer information, product inventory, purchase records, sales documents and so on. These companies often opt to work with reliable Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution providers who offer Mobile Content Management as an additional feature, to help the customers gain granular control over all the enterprise content that is shared and distributed amongst their employees.

    The Key Features and Benefits of MCM that simplifies the process of enterprise content management

    • Enterprise content is shared, stored, and distributed through a secured, managed and encrypted tunnel and the core management takes place from a centralized dashboard.
    • IT team can manage, monitor, and control employee access to essential company data preventing it from falling into false hands.

    • The IT admin can password-protect the content and can also secure it by configuring necessary security settings and message encryption.
    • The IT admin can also perform a remote wipe of the enterprise content apart from exercising the ability to lock the managed devices in case of device theft/loss.
