Wireless management solutions provider mindWireless announced the launch of its latest wireless telecommunications expense management (TEM) software platform. Major improvements in the new mW SMART V5.3 include improved report visualization and consolidation of wireless user data across organizations with multiple divisions and independent operations.
The wireless expense management solution now includes Employee Portal Reports that allow managers to create new reports on wireless expense and usage across all levels. The Single Organizational View consolidates multiple feeds from multiple business units, giving a consolidated view of the wireless expense by the company.
The Unique Report Views allows users to view reports based on and triggered by single-sign-on, enabling effortless information access.
With the new Manage BYOD (bring your own device) capability, mindWireless offers a corporate discount for employees to purchase an iPhone (News - Alert) or other device via the mW SMART Procurement Portal. Enterprises can then identify and monitor costs on BYODs in use.
Company officials say the enhanced reporting capabilities are designed to address the challenges faced by organizations in dealing with the new BYOD environment. The service also provides greater visibility of data and increased management capability.
“Security, data visibility and accessibility, and a proliferation of devices and operating systems have caused organizations to seek new ways to view their wireless devices and usage data,” said Jack McAfee (News - Alert), chief technology officer for mindWireless, in a statement.
“mW SMART is the process automation foundation of mindWireless’ services and V5.3 provides the technical muscle and graphical flexibility to help organizations track usage across a wide variety of devices to keep costs in check,” McAfee added.
In a similar announcement in the industry recently, Wavelink (News - Alert) Corporation, a global provider of mobile device management, wireless infrastructure management, and mobile application development software, announced major improvements to Wavelink Avalanche Telicos.
Assisting administrators to proactively monitor, analyze and manage data, voice, SMS and roaming usage, the additions will enable businesses to recognize overages in real time and analyze usage patterns across carriers and platforms.
