AT&T Launches AT&T Mobile Workplace
May 30, 2013
AT&T (News - Alert) has launched AT&T Mobile Workplace, a cloud-based solution designed to simplify how businesses access and share content with coworkers and teams across multiple devices. The solution will help small businesses keep their workers better connected and more productive while on-the-go.
Thanks to the Mobile Workplace, employees will now be able to work remotely without missing a beat as they can seamlessly access, share, edit and create content through their mobile devices which increases productivity, while keeping their business running efficiently. It can also enable businesses to store, share and view content from the cloud; create, edit and annotate documents; access the service from virtually any mobile device; and link multiple devices and computers to the service.
"The use of mobile devices continues to be a key tool for SMBs as they look to manage and expand their operations," said Lou Delery, senior vice president of Small Business Marketing, AT&T, in a statement.
Delery added that the new Mobile Workplace solution puts the work experience at the fingertips of employees regardless of where they are, and is currently available as a Web-based solution supported by a desktop agent or mobile application. Moreover, business content can be viewed online or offline, enabling continued work even while in transit. The service can be self-installed as well.
Organizations can choose from three service package subscriptions: Basic, Enhanced and Premium, all of which boast advanced mobility features such as SMS notifications, desktop sync and more. Mobile Workplace is extremely cost-effective, starting as low as six dollars per user per month for the basic service package subscription.
Back in January, TMCnet had reported that AT&T would be allowing customers to make more FaceTime (News - Alert) calls over cellular coverage for no additional charge.
However, the decision comes with some pretty rigid parameters. When AT&T first unveiled FaceTime over its network last September, only customers with mobile share plans and those with an LTE (News - Alert) device with a tiered plan could make FaceTime calls for no additional charge. Now though, the company will open it up to customers with non-LTE tiered plans, in turn alienating those customers who have an unlimited data plan.
