Why Mobility Managers Should Care About “Orange is the New Black”
Director, Customer Success
What’s the Big Deal?
What’s the number one reason why you should care about the new season of “Orange is the New Black?” Because your USERS care. And they will watch their favorite shows by any means necessary, including streaming afterhours on their corporate mobile device. So, how do you mitigate the overuse and abuse of corporate-purchased data plans? It’s simple — talk to your users.
Here at Visage, we see a lot of corporate mobility data. I mean, A WHOLE LOT. And you know which companies are saving the most money on their mobility costs? The ones who talk to their users. That’s right — companies who send email to their users about their mobility costs save almost 20% more than companies that don’t.
Ready for a crash course on using MobilityCentral to talk to your users? Send emails from MobilityCentral in four easy steps.
Step 1: Upload your corporate logo
Make email communication more effective with a familiar logo. Upload your logo by clicking on Settings > Email Configuration in MobilityCentral.
Step 2: Set up your desired “from” email address
You can preload as many “from” addresses as you like in MobilityCentral. You can also add a “from” email address on the fly! Customize your “from” addresses by clicking on Settings > Email Configuration in MobilityCentral, or simply enter the “from” address when you are editing your email template.
Step 3: Create and save email templates
Creating templates in MobilityCentral is fast and easy, and ensures you don’t have to reinvent the wheel every month. Use standard or customized reports in MobilityCentral to identify the users with whom you want to communicate. Simply select the checkbox next to the users and click the ‘Send Emails’ button on your report view. Populate the template with your desired text, formatting, and report elements, and click ‘Save’ (or ‘Save and Send,’ if you are ready to send your email). The next time you return to this report, your template will be waiting for you!
Step 4: Start saving money!
Send your emails! The more you communicate with your users about their mobile device habits and costs, the more they will self-police their own actions. So, go ahead and click send already, why dontcha?
Got a few “VIP” users that you’d like to exclude from ever receiving email? The CEO? Other executives? No problem! From the Users tab, go to each VIP user’s profile, and check the “Email Opt-Out?” box.
