It’s clear smartphones and tablets are revolutionising how staff work. These devices help businesses do better business, boost productivity, improve customer service and empower staff do more. Why are Ready-to-Use configured devices in demand? On average, each new mobile device ordered will require 1.2 interventions by your ICT department within 30 days of delivery. You can reduce this to virtually zero by getting mobile device staging, all your business applications, user profiles and service activation taken care of with mobility managed services.
