Beckman Coulter Selects Visage Mobile for Greater Enterprise Mobility Management
MobilityCentral SaaS Solution Provides Transparency into Corporate Wireless Spend and Employee Usage
SAN FRANCISCO—June 22, 2010—Visage Mobile (www.visagemobile.com), provider of MobilityCentral, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution for enterprise mobility management, announced today that Beckman Coulter, Inc. (NYSE:BEC), the leading provider of biomedical testing products, has selected MobilityCentral to reduce the time it takes to manage the company’s mobility program, which includes tracking mobile devices and easily identifying and taking action on unnecessary mobile billing overages.
Beckman Coulter recently evaluated the mobility management landscape and quickly identified MobilityCentral as the leading solution in the market today. Visage Mobile’s MobilityCentral application was implemented in less than two weeks giving Beckman Coulter immediate and unprecedented visibility and control over its mobile operations.
“With over 11,500 employees, it was becoming increasingly difficult to track and process the multiple wireless carriers billing statements, users mobile devices and track the employee users,” said Jackie Neeley, mobile device administrator at Beckman Coulter, Inc. “We selected Visage Mobile because they offer a unique enterprise mobility management solution – one that is easy-to-use, and the only true multi-tenant SaaS solution on the market. With MobilityCentral, I can log in and immediately access amazing dashboards that show the state of my mobility program, including cross-carrier spend data and metrics, individual employee mobility usage and the ability to drill down into the details as needed. Combined with its world-class reporting capabilities, MobilityCentral saves our business time and money.”
Visage Mobile’s MobilityCentral SaaS solution allows a company to track the number of mobile devices it has under management, employee assignment of devices and overall monthly spend on wireless plans and features. With greater mobile management, organizations can significantly reduce costs by applying a mobility budget, eliminate wireless overspend and reduce the time and effort required to process carrier invoices and track inventory. Once a company’s mobility program is transparent, MobilityCentral can also assist in managing corporate policies and ensuring compliance.
“As corporate smartphone use continues to rise, organizations are going to have to start monitoring their mobile spend more closely,” said Bzur Haun, president of Visage Mobile. “Day in and day out, we are amazed at the hundreds of thousands of dollars wasted on outrageous roaming charges, 411 calls, ringtones and mobile entertainment. With MobilityCentral, Visage Mobile offers a one-stop solution for enterprise mobile management, with rapid time to deployment, integration with all of the major carriers and a simple SaaS delivery model.”
