Enterprise mobility is a vital component of any successful business, underpinning how employees, customers, and suppliers connect, collaborate, and operate in a digital world. But the benefits of greater flexibility, mobility, efficiency, and productivity can come with ever-escalating costs. This is an increasingly sensitive pain point for technology and finance leaders who must find new ways to adopt new technology while reducing CapEx spending.

In an era of rapid advancements in 5G, artificial intelligence, and mobile solutions, leaders know that strategically maximising the use of these innovative technologies is essential to staying ahead. To ride the crest of the business network management and enterprise mobility wave, leading companies are adopting a continual upgrade philosophy with a cloud-first and mobile-everything ethos. This modern business strategy is designed to help companies stay in step with the rapid evolution of comms technology. 

Whereas costly, upfront investments in hardware such as servers, switches, and PBX technology were essential and deemed capital expenditure, in today’s world, everything-as-a-service models in the cloud offer a different way. With flexible IT infrastructure that can expand or contract with your needs, as it can be delivered as a service, it’s accounted for as operating expense.

And moving technology investments to OpEx, means you don’t have to find a large bucket of money upfront to fund it.

Saving time and reducing costs 

Equipment that once required dedicated real estate, skilled internal employees, and countless hours of labour can now be fulfilled remotely thanks to the cloud or by expert services providers that can handle it all for you as a managed service.
