Social Mobile, an enterprise mobility solutions provider specializing in Android Enterprise development, today announced that it has launched Social Mobile ONE, a Device-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering fully customized enterprise mobility solutions on a subscription-based model.
With Social Mobile ONE, clients benefit from a complete mobility solution encompassing enterprise-grade hardware, device management software, managed mobility services, and cellular connectivity – all without large capital expenditures. Instead, organizations can benefit from a mobility solution that is customized to their specific needs – taking advantage of a monthly fee per device.
Many organizations today utilize expensive consumer-grade devices to power business-critical operations and processes. These devices are less secure and more expensive to manage and support. According to VDC Research Group, the average annual total cost of ownership (TCO) for a consumer-grade device—including upfront acquisition, deployment and training costs, support costs, and the cost of downtime ranges from $4,000 to $5,000 per device depending on form factor. Enterprise-grade devices, like those built by Social Mobile, have a TCO that is on average 40% less. This translates into significant savings for clients across all industries from healthcare to retail and hospitality.
With economic volatility, supply chain restrictions, and the growing demand for mobility applications, Social Mobile ONE is ideal for businesses to leverage the DaaS model without compromising functionality, security, and continuity. IT spending can be optimized through a predictable and scalable OpEx model, optimizing budgets through a single vendor.
“We felt that this was the ideal time to launch a Device-as-a-Service offer,” said Tyler Forst, Chief Revenue Officer of Social Mobile. “The growth of enterprise mobility combined with tightening budgets means that Social Mobile ONE is ideally positioned to provide clients with a flexible and affordable solution to help navigate the economic uncertainties facing the world.”
