Many companies today rely on mobile devices for everyday transactions because smart technologies make processes fast and efficient. With that said, mobile device management (MDM) solutions are as important.
Besides, mobile devices drove Internet-of-Things (IoT) technologies forward. With IoT, work and life as a whole became a lot more convenient. And the development of new applications and software empowered mobile devices to do so. Since then, we are reaping the benefits IoT brings every day.
No matter how efficient, mobile devices do still require maintenance, administration, and troubleshooting. Let’s say an organization scattered remote locations, with each having in-house devices as part of the business operations. When the device is down, operations go on hold. During this crucial time, MDM technology and administration comes in very handy.
Springdel, the company behind the Springmatic, has envisioned making mobile device management more flexible for businesses. Springmatic can be classified as unified endpoint management (UEM) or a next-generation MDM that leverages DeepEdge and AI technology to ensure their management platform is future-proof.
How? Springdel introduced the world’s only device management platform designed specifically for the network’s edge and AI-compatibility. Springmatic can cultivate Big Data through mobile devices to allows businesses to learn more about their operations with machine learning.
Aside from that, Springmatic is cloud-native. So businesses that want to integrate Springmatic don’t need to host and build their own servers. This makes it competitively cost-efficient than its competitors in the market as the technology allows you to do a lot more with your devices for less.
When devices malfunction, operations delay. And this is where mobile device management solutions take the spotlight. Instead of sending a technician to the location to check on the device, the technician can get hold of the real-time access and control to inspect the device via Springmatic.
Moreover, Springmatic allows multiple remote controls. Hence, anyone available among the technicians can access and troubleshoot the device in real-time. Or if they need support who are remotely working in other countries, they can easily share the device control with other authorized support team members.
Springmatic can support mobile devices. Springmatic is made flexible to support both Google-certified devices — smart devices that run on Android — and others. Actually, Springmatic can support industry-standard hardware such as Honeywell, Zebra, Huawei, Samsung, and the likes.
Rugged devices are a type of hardware designed especially to tolerate the harshest environments. Hence, exposure to extreme temperatures, shocks, drops, water, and dust is no longer a reason for device failures in business.
Also, rugged phones and devices are highly durable. Using these rugged devices adheres to better safety and compliance that helps in the mitigation of risk in the workplace. Usually, the industrial sector including construction, logistics, and fieldwork uses rugged technologies.
Devices such as smartphones and tablets powered by Google’s Android grew in popularity due to their flexibility. Companies can easily integrate on these devices through the development of their own smart applications or even access online portals via browser apps.
In fact, Android-based rugged devices increased 23% annually as per the IDC in 2018. By now, there are more Android-based mobile devices across industries than before. More so, urban dwellers evidently can observe this.
As mentioned above, Springmatic can also work with non-Google-certified devices. One of which first comes into mind are Huawei and other China-manufactured mobile devices. Springmatic is highly interoperable and can support any device from any brand.
Actually, it is not surprising to see bulky hardware being replaced by book-sized tablets in both private and public settings. Due to their compact yet powerful system, many establishments prefer Android-based tablets for their premises. This is also true for dynamic and remote businesses.
Similar to public-facing tablets, Kiosks provide service in public places. To define, kiosks are computer terminals integrated with specialized hardware and software that provides the public to access information, communicate, buy, or simply interact for amusement.
Usually, kiosks can be seen in the mall as a mall directory. It can also appear as a fintech solution where people can buy mobile recharge, order their food, and pay on the attached card machine. It’s a powerful screen that can provide a wide array of services. Some kiosks can camouflage as a touchscreen electronic billboard too.
Moving to payments, Springmatic also supports PoS hardware and mobile Point-of-Sale (mPoS) devices. In the age of e-commerce and delivery, PoS machines are usually dispatched along with deliverymen.
PoS machines are critical to close sales. For both online and offline commerce, consumers prefer to pay via card and mobile making digital payments a must-have option for business owners. Additionally, businesses can analyze and monitor their PoS systems and even inventory remotely.
Talking about inventory, barcode scanners are a must for any business with stock management. Like rugged devices, bar-code scanners can exist in harsh warehouse environments hence, prone to accident and malfunction.
For example, in convenient stores, retail management solutions consist of hand-held devices such as barcode scanners coupled with PoS hardware and tablets. Springmatic can support three of these devices in one.
Under development. Soon to launch.
The answer is — it depends. Springmatic MDM and UEM solutions’ importance depends on how an organization heavily relies on barcode scanners, PoS machines, kiosks, tablets, and rugged devices for operation.
If your organization heavily uses these machines daily, integrating and syncing the devices using Springdel may be one of the options you look into. Finally, if you’re searching for ways to launch and manage your devices, simply get in touch.
