Amtel (News - Alert), Inc. recently entered a partnership agreement with Vita Group, an Australian-based lifestyle and electronics retailer. Vita Group will be the exclusive distributor of the mobile device management solution (MDM) from Amtel within Australian markets.
"Mobile device security and expense management is a growing a concern of enterprises worldwide,” said Pankaj (PJ) Gupta, CEO at Amtel. “Given Vita Group's strong relationships with enterprises and service providers in Australia, we are pleased to have them represent Amtel in this important and growing market. We also share a common mission of ensuring our customers get the most from their telecom services."
The partnership agreement stipulates that Vita Group will distribute Amtel's MDM solution based on considerations of security management. These include device configurations; detection of compromised devices; management of profiles; remote wipe and app management; expense management for tracking, managing and provisioning carrier expenses incurred for enterprise mobile devices and laying out mobile policies; the creation of alerts and delivery of reports to users based on corporate policies; lifecycle management, which includes workflow procurement; and updating inventory for easier provisioning of new devices to users.
"Amtel offers a top-tier solution for mobile device management and security,” said Maxine Horne, Chief Executive Officer at the Vita Group. “But Amtel takes the logical next step beyond security, integrating telecom expense management capabilities that identify inefficiencies and deliver significant reductions in total telecom costs. Through this, they are able to turn MDM from an enterprise expense into a means to contribute to the corporate bottom line.”
“This is a strategic relationship for Vita Group,” she added, “as several of our largest customers have expressed an interest in Amtel's MDM services over the past several months."
Amtel, Inc. is an icon in mobile device management (MDM), focusing on the challenges organizations are confronted with in managing mobile devices and telecommunications expenses.
