Businesses are struggling to keep up with the deluge of challenges that result as mobile becomes increasingly integrated into their day-to-day workflows. Amtel MDM is a mobile device management solution that simplifies mobile security for enterprise organizations.
Amtel’s mobile lifecycle management portfolio combines Mobile Device Management (MDM), Mobile Expense Management (MEM or TEM), and mobile apps management into a unified, and integrated, cloud-based platform. The solution was built to help minimize corporate and personal liability and risks, as they could be related to mobile devices.
Built for mid-size enterprises, Amtel is frequently used by businesses with field services operations, including pharmaceutical companies with field sales reps, logistics companies that make deliveries, and oil drilling companies with employees working on rigs.
Amtel MDM was created with the goal of providing enterprise organizations with greater security and control over their mobile devices and the way they are used. The solution enables users to safely roll out corporate-issued and BYOD (bring your own device) mobile devices, while simultaneously lowering IT costs.
When organizations use Amtel to make their employees’ mobile devices more secure, they reduce the risk associated with any lost devices that may hold confidential data. They also provide increased mobility for their employees, since Amtel provides users with automatic WiFi and email server access configuration based on device location.
Amtel MDM’s Mobile Lifecycle Management architecture is scalable to thousands of devices. The solution is frequently used by mid-size enterprise organizations running 500 or more connected mobile devices. Frequent users include field service organizations in distribution, health care, high-tech, and financial services.
Managed service providers can use Amtel to gain better control over employees who work offsite. For example, logistics companies and transportation services that handle deliveries, pharmaceutical companies with field sales representatives, and contractors with technicians who work remotely can utilize Amtel’s multi-tenant SaaS platform to increase the security and functionality of the mobile devices being used by their employees.
Using Amtel MDM’s geofencing solution provides businesses with a way to automatically activate or deactivate device features, and restrict access to specific apps or corporate data, based on the GPS location of enrolled mobile devices. As devices move into and out of geofence boundaries, security policies can be adjusted to block market app access or disable cameras to protect corporate information.
Set up a geofence from within the cloud-based platform, and then select which actions should occur when a mobile device is located within the fence you’ve created. You can do things like prevent employees from using their smartphone cameras inside the office or restricting access to certain apps inside the classroom (for education clients).
Amtel gives customers complete control over how their mobile devices are being used when their employees are both inside and outside of the office. For example, a business that doesn’t want its employees visiting YouTube on corporate-owned devices can restrict access to the site across hundreds, or even thousands, of smartphones and tablets. Businesses also have control over everything with regard to storage media, and SD cards can be enabled or disabled remotely.
To add restrictions to your employees’ mobile devices, click on the Restrictions tab. You have complete control over how your mobile devices are used. For example, if you want to limit certain accounts or prevent users from enabling certain features on their smartphones, like email, you can set up those restrictions through the Restrictions tab on your Amtel account.
Organizations are able to take control over public mobile apps with custom blacklist and whitelist policies. Whitelisted apps are apps that an IT department and MDM admins have recognized as “safe” for the workplace. These are apps that have been granted permission to be used on iOS and Android devices. On the other hand, blacklisted apps are restricted from use.
To whitelist and blacklist specific market apps in your own organization, visit the dashboard and select which device group you’d like to set a new policy for. Click “Whitelisted Apps” and search for any applications you’d like to add to your list. As the admin, you have the choice to make whitelisted apps optional or mandatory.
The mobile expense management module provides organizations with insight into how much they’re paying for mobile communications each month and how those costs are being utilized. Amtel’s mobile and telecom expense control solution can be used to generate reports to notify admins of usage spikes, adjust workflows based on e-procurement with carriers, and audit bills for cost optimization.
Visit the expense management module to see what your organization is spending on mobile and telecom fees. In addition to showing you the mobile average costs per line, based on carriers, Amtel will also provide insight into telecom charge trends month-over-month. You can see how invoices are being billed by various carriers, and view the status of any active e-procurements.
Amtel MDM integrates with many apps, including Microsoft’s Active Directory (AD), Exchange Active Sync (EAS) and Office 365. The company’s TEM is integrated with enterprise financial ERP systems, and Amtel works closely with manufacturers, including Apple and Samsung, for API integration. The Web API allows enterprises to integrate Amtel’s Mobile Lifecycle Management solution (MDM + MEM) with enterprise systems and business processes.
Amtel provides additional ancillary services via third-party partnerships, including BYOD global handset logistics support using managed providers; enterprise app creation and integration using application programming interfaces and a software developer’s kit (SDK); third-party Wi-Fi vendors’ integration; and third-party file management solutions using its APIs.
Amtel MDM is a cloud-based service, offered as a monthly subscription that can be renewed annually. Clients have the option to choose Mobile Device Management (MDM) that includes security and apps management, or Telecom Expense Management (TEM) that includes mobile and telecom expense control. Although pricing is separate, the two solutions are delivered on a single console.
Amtel’s fixed monthly subscription fee includes unlimited support and updates. Pricing tiers are based on volume purchase. Per user pricing (for multiple devices per user) is also available upon request, Because Amtel offers a private cloud-based solution, there is no separate charge for hosting, and there are no onboarding or support fees.
