International roaming issues? One migrating stork racks up $2700 in charges!

A Polish environmental group was using GPS tracking devices to tag and study the migration of storks. One stork’s journey to the Sudan ended up costing $2700 in international charges. This bird clearly didn’t understand roaming plans!

Wanna bet that this environmental company isn’t the only company to experience mysterious international charges? While you wouldn’t expect a stork to understand the subtleties of carrier international roam usage, many traveling employees find themselves in the same place from lack of understanding how carrier international usage works.

In the case of this stork, it was bad luck migrating without the right international feature. For companies who travel abroad, knowing the nuances of how this usage works can dramatically minimize cost. Click here to learn more.

Biggest Loser World Cup? Your Company’s Data Plan from Streaming the Games?

Streaming one soccer match on company devices at high definition will consume 2 – 3GB per match. What if your company had the tools to know when and how much data was consumed by employees streaming World Cup matches?

Real-time monitoring offers the ability to not only have access to actionable feedback, but the ability to create alerts and set controls automatically. To automate means presetting thresholds to block content categories. This is the true definition of real-time control.

Knowing time and data amounts of content sites viewed in real-time provides the confidence companies need to implement alerts and notifications that modify the behavior of every data user.
