Mobile Application Deployment Solutions
Smartphones are becoming more popular in business these days and with a smartphone comes a whole host of new opportunities. Businesses now have a rich web browsing experience, which means they can use web based applications that historically would have been unusable. They can also get access to applications either straight from an app market place or a custom built application for a specific line of business. But how can you control and manage what applications your staff can use. That’s where Mobile Application Deployment comes into its own.
Mobile Application Deployment Solutions – So what if I don’t deploy my applications properly?
Even with the consumerisation of IT not all employees are IT literate and installing a mobile application can take considerable IT knowledge. Like understanding how to set up a mobile virtual private network (MVPN) or change the data usage threshold. Badly deployed applications can mean bringing your valuable field based resource off the road to get the application installed or updated and you not knowing who has the latest version of the application. All things result in a bad customer experience, reduced productivity of the users and a waste of your companies valuable IT resource.
What are Mobile Application Deployment Solutions?
Mobile application deployment starts at the very beginning, and Fusion Mobile already work closely with the handset manufacturers like Nokia, HTC and Samsung, the software developers as well as the end client to make sure everything is compatible with the mobile device management platform.
Once the application is proven to work with a device that has been approved by the mobile device management platform, then a transition plan is built, which includes the setting up and configuring of the devices, the training of key users and a timed role out of the new devices.
When an application is deployed correctly, you can measure and monitor who has installed the application correctly and at what time, and not have to call or email each individual user.
