How to create effective mobile data management

Usage Insights: This capability, along with real-time optimization is unique to MobilSentry™ – we illuminate everything happening with data consumption, including websites visited, and how much time spent – in aggregate for the company and detail for individual users, which is especially useful during uncertain times.

Real-time Alerts: MobilSentry™ sends a notification when a user nears or reaches a pre-specified threshold. Alerts are more effective if sent in real-time rather than delivering days or weeks after the fact. Administrators can set and deploy multiple notification thresholds in a billing cycle.

Data usage controls: Administrators may restrict usage by limiting access to certain categories such as streaming video, audio or social media, enforcing hard caps, or even blocking access to cellular data during certain days and times

Financial harmonization: Mobile data usage is linked to the overall cost. Enterprises must be able to translate consumption into dollars and see how it contributes to the top and bottom lines. MobilSentry shows organizations where they can save money and lets them tweak data consumption on the fly.

MobilSense Recommends 3 Distinct Activities to Uncover Significant Savings

Wireless billing practices are prone to gaps resulting in invoices that are greater than they should be. When dealing with the challenges of today’s uncontrolled and undisciplined wireless environments, the first step should be to identify the most obvious overspending problems.  A focus on minimizing carrier invoices is a good first step because it: 1) requires minimal organizational coordination and training to achieve, 2) generates immediate savings (in less than three months) and 3) represents a significant percentage of the overall hard savings opportunities available through a comprehensive wireless management practice.

In our methodology we recommend three distinct activities to uncover significant savings:

  • Optimization of plans and features
  • Elimination of uneeded devices and features
  • Removal of billing and crediting errors

While some organizations are doing a reasonably good job at managing wireless costs, even among the most diligent, there are real opportunities to find additional savings.  It is rare for a company to have full control over its wireless environment and be capitalizing on every potential savings opportunity.
