Hi this is Eric Holmes with SMG3Rx, a division of Strategic Mobility Group, here to talk to you about managing Android in the enterprise. When thinking about your Android strategy, SMG educates our customer on 6 key points. The End-user experience being the most important, a company needs to think about how the end-user of the device is going to interact with it on a day-to-day basis, and how they can improve that interaction for productivity reasons. The apps on the device, migration of the operating system, as well as the apps. How they’re going to deploy the device across their Enterprise, may it be one location or multiple locations. How they will manage those devices in their Enterprise, using a mobile device management software tool. And finally, the future support of the devices. As we all know devices will break. And how are you going to manage and support those devices through their life cycle?
Hi this is Eric Holmes with SMG3Rx, a division of Strategic Mobility Group, here to talk to you about managing Android in the enterprise. The biggest trend in healthcare for mobile technology is unified communications. Unified communications being we are now having mobile devices running secure text messaging, as well as voice over IP on the device, taking real-time phone calls on a rugged mobile device in the hands of a nurse. A lot of hospitals want unified communications but a lot of hospitals don’t know how to get it, or they are being led down a path where they are not being properly educated on the complexities of having a unified communications platform running on the Android operating system. SMG3 takes all the guesswork out of, “How are we going to get a unified communications device in the hands of our nurses- not only on time, but also working properly all the time?” Working with SMG3Rx to develop an Android strategy for your unified communications project initiative will ensure that the device is: properly configured, will ensure that the device is running 100%, will ensure that the user, the nurse, a clinician, anybody that is interacting with your device has a good user experience. Working with SMG3Rx’s Technical Support team will ensure that we have a successful deployment of the devices. Working with SMG3Rx Edge ensures that we have the future management of the device as well as supporting the life cycle of the device. These devices are going to break, working with our Edge platform allows you to redeploy fixed devices back to the nurses with no hassle. And that’s what we’re really looking for, a really good user experience, no hassle, a migration platform for your Android as new apps are developed and released. Healthcare has probably the hardest environment that we see in the mobile world today, your users are pushing technology faster than we’ve ever seen before new apps are being introduced. Our old Android devices running Android 4 and 5 can no longer support the new apps coming out that need Android 8, 9 and 10, we need to develop a process of migrating throughout your Enterprise to ensure the adoption of new devices. We need to develop a platform so that we can have some devices running older versions of Android for their applications and some devices running newer versions of Android. Working with SMG3, working with our Edge team, working with our support engineers, working with our deployment engineers, will ensure that you have a proper unified communications strategy coupled with an overall enterprise Android strategy.
