INDIANAPOLIS, IN, July 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOBI Wireless Management, a provider of Mobility Management Services (MMS) for enterprises, today announced it has been recognized by Gartner, Inc., in the first- ever "Magic Quadrant for Managed Mobility Services."* An emerging player in managed mobility services, MOBI was positioned, with the majority of the field, in the Niche Players quadrant. MOBI's collaborative approach to assisting North American enterprises with their mobility needs has resulted in the noted 100 percent customer loyalty. Additionally, Gartner recognized MOBI's technical expertise, sourcing processes, third-party integrations, and support services as standing out among the rest. The authors of the report are Gartner's Eric Goodness, Gianluca Tramacere, and Katja Ruud.
According to Gartner, "managed mobility services (MMS) encompass the IT and process services provided by an external service provider (ESP) that are required to: plan, procure, provision, activate, manage and support mobile devices, network services and mobile applications." This year's Magic Quadrant is the first comprehensive third-party market research report that illuminates the growing managed mobility services market and the providers in the space. According to the report, "this research focuses on vendors managing pools of globally-distributed, corporate-liable devices and bring your own device users," and shows that "no Leaders or Challengers have emerged in this market as providers need to invest more in people, processes, tools and awareness to better serve a growing global demand," which is extremely rare for a Gartner Magic Quadrant.
The growth prospects for the market are staggering; "Gartner estimates that the worldwide number of devices to be placed under management by ESPs will grow by more than 50% in 2013." MOBI leadership and industry experts expect strong compounding growth over the next several years as enterprises become more aware of the cost and time efficiencies that can be unlocked through a MMS solution.
"As a pioneer in the managed mobility services market, we're thrilled with the light Gartner is casting on the market," said Mitch Black, president of MOBI Wireless Management. "Gartner is reinforcing the benefits of managed mobility services and has reinforced MOBI's position as an emerging service provider that leverages a mobile-exclusive legacy and collaborative innovation to successfully execute managed mobility solutions for our North American based enterprise clients. We believe customer collaboration will always drive continued solution development, software integrations, service, and organic global expansion - which in turn drives the development and maturity of the market."
Gartner's findings further validate MOBI's ability to streamline the management of enterprises' devices, services and people with software and services. Of note, MOBI's sourcing and support services, program management, and mobile device technology expertise received recognition as standout strengths. In addition, Gartner's customer satisfaction survey resulted in MOBI's customers indicating very strong loyalty, with 100 percent demonstrating they will sole-source their MMS needs to MOBI again when it is time for renewal.
