While every mobility management strategy will have cost containment as one of its core components, the points of emphasis in each strategy can be as diverse as the company cultures. For some, the mobile device is considered a company perk and comes with few restrictions. In rare circumstances, that perk might be extended to family members of employees. Organizations on the other end of the spectrum may have strict cost guidelines and even stricter security requirements.
The results of these strategies often have only critical employees receiving company-provided devices with stringent limitations for business-only usage. These cases typically result in the need for employees to carry two mobile devices, one for business and one for personal use. In extenuating circumstances, companies have chosen to shift the entire expense and management burden of mobility assets to its employees. For some, that privilege comes with a stipend or company reimbursement and for others the employee may receive no compensation.

If you think your employees are just using their business smartphones to communicate with corporate applications, think again. It is estimated that more than 50% of the actual data usage is spent on social media sites, news and entertainment, as well as streaming audio and video applications. It’s why we think if you could actually see the sites used by employee devices, you may change your views regarding company mobile device usage policies. The carriers don’t provide this information, but MobilSense can.
Mobile technology is an indisputably powerful and essential business tool. High bandwidth data-capable smartphones bring access to an exploding range of employee productivity applications. With the growth of mobility comes a corresponding increase in data consumption. Data usage once measured in MBs is now averaging multiple GBs per mobile device and that means an ever-increasing carrier invoice.
Broken out by category and quantity used, a snapshot of your employee data usage can be used as a training tool to help your company harness the exploding cost of data consumption.

If it is, we understand what an exasperating task it can be. With the carriers constantly changing their rate plans, it makes it difficult for anyone to keep their wireless cost ahead of the curve.
