To cater to this shift in consumer expectations, experts point to mobility’s key role in the post-pandemic world as the foundation for digital transformation.
The world is currently returning to normal, but employee and consumer expectations have permanently changed. Workspaces have grown beyond traditional boundaries, and operational managers now have to oversee numerous activities that are beyond their direct control. Dynamic supply chains make this task especially challenging.
The supply chain is always subject to change. At a port, goods may be held up. The minimum wage may rise. Global tensions can rise, which has an impact on how the supply chain moves and communicates.
Fast-moving production floors, micro-fulfillment centers, severe shortages, and rising last-mile costs are now causing problems for modern supply chains.
Experts refer to mobility’s crucial role in the post-pandemic world as the cornerstone for digital transformation in order to meet this change in customer expectations.
Two features must be enabled in workers’ work devices for CIOs who are considering moving to a fully remote or hybrid work environment: seamless connectivity and security.
Data can be captured, stored, and shared digitally with fewer mistakes and wait times using a mobile device, such as a rugged cell phone or a business tablet. Together with a reliable MDM solution, this makes it simple for enterprises to deploy new devices, reduce downtime, maximize usage, and even ensure that security patches are installed in a timely manner to prevent breaches.
The following are some applications where CIOs can successfully employ MDM:
The rise in e-commerce and buy-online-pickup-in-store (BOPIS) transactions following the pandemic demonstrate how customers’ shopping habits have evolved. Handheld gadgets with built-in scanners can automatically capture data while also transcribing it into a shared database. A strong MDM solution ensures that all devices are operating well and aids IT professionals in preventing problems during the busiest operational times.
Three out of four clients, according to recent surveys, will check their order details numerous times before receiving their packages. In order to assure current tracking, supply chains must offer real-time insight that is compatible with user-friendly systems. To distribute labor efforts where they are most required, teams must also be able to track deployed resources in real time.
Leading operating system developers cooperate with business technology suppliers to design platforms that seamlessly connect employees and customers in order to meet this need. All main operating systems and device types are supported by cutting-edge mobile device management solutions, greatly streamlining IT management of mobile assets.
If there’s one thing that breaks trust between two parties, it’s a breakdown in communication. Current cellular technologies serve to bridge the gaps between teams to avoid misinterpretation, such as push-to-talk connectivity choices and cellular networking. Additionally, new security patches and updates to combat growing cyber threats harden mobile devices even more so that they may contain crucial data and communication channels without endangering operations.
Basic functionalities include bulk device configuration, tracking device lifecycles independent of an operating system, and support for both company-owned and employee-owned devices should all be possible with a solid and dependable MDM solution. Devices should equip workers with precise real-time data wherever they are when these conditions are met.
Enterprise-ready MDM systems give operational heads the tools, resources, and security capabilities they need to be ready for unanticipated, catastrophic occurrences in highly complicated and sophisticated supply chains. Enterprise mobility solutions are the first step in accomplishing digital transformation, which is still a top priority for enterprises in all sectors.
