Recognized for Creating New Opportunities in Mobile Technology

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 13, 2012) - Amtel Inc., the industry's first integrated solution for managing mobile device security and telecom expenses, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnMobile 20 Companies to Watch. Inclusion in the OnMobile 20 Companies to Watch signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Amtel was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

Amtel and the OnDemand 20 Companies to Watch will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnMobile event, co-presented with OnMobile Global Ltd., on June 13th, 2012, at The Fox Theatre in Redwood City, CA.

This two-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the top emerging mobile companies are creating new business opportunities in the hot, high-growth mobile market.

"With the quickly maturing mobile market, opportunities are opening up almost faster than entrepreneurs can respond. There is no question that mobile is becoming the new norm, with smartphone and tablet penetration increasing exponentially in both consumer and business environments. App developers are bringing their disruptive skills to the corporate and enterprise world as well, giving scope and purpose to mobile users in the business world," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This explosive market is being driven in large part by the companies that made this year's OnMobile 20 Companies to Watch list. We congratulate the OnMobile 20 Companies to Watch, companies that our editors believe represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in today's private company marketplace."

The OnMobile 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.

Amtel's MDM solution is based on the following components:

  • Security Management including device configuration, compromised device detection, profile management, remote wipe and content management.
  • Expense Management to track, manage and allocate actual carrier expenses for enterprise mobile devices in real-time, instituting mobile policy and generating alerts and spend reports to users based on corporate policies.
  • Lifecycle Management including workflow procurement, expense allocations and inventory updating to simplify and reduce the costs of provisioning of new devices to users.

"We are thrilled to be named a company to watch," said Pankaj (PJ) Gupta, CEO of Amtel. "It validates our mission of providing a complete mobile lifecycle management solution that addresses challenges organizations face in managing mobile devices and telecommunications expenses."
