Enterprise Mobile Releases White Paper Outlining Best Practices for Planning a Corporate iPhone Deployment

Based on Experience With Customers, the New White Paper Provides Advice for Validating That iPhone Platform Meets User, Technical and Business Requirements

WATERTOWN, MA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2010) -  Enterprise Mobile, a provider of outsourced lifecycle services that help enterprises develop, deploy, support and manage mobility strategies, today announced a timely, practical white paper titled "Certifying the iPhone to Ensure a Successful Deployment." The paper is an informative guide for devising an iPhone strategy and planning an enterprise deployment.

The paper describes best practices Enterprise Mobile recommends for organizations looking to effectively prepare for employees' use of the iPhone to conduct business. It suggests specific steps IT should take, such as determining who within an organization needs iPhones and how they will employ those devices. In addition it recommends how to define the scope and goals of an iPhone deployment and devise a well-designed pilot.

Enterprise Mobile has conducted successful iPhone implementations for numerous customers in various markets, including publishing, telecommunications, media and entertainment, and airlines. Those companies demand "an excellent out of the box experience" for their employees and have especially tight deployment deadlines for providing users devices fully configured with approved applications.

For a global publisher, for example, Enterprise Mobile made it possible for employees to order iPhones fully configured with customer-specified applications from a customized portal within just four weeks of launching the project. Working with the publisher and representatives of its wireless carrier, Enterprise Mobile significantly eased the customer's adoption of the iPhone. Enterprise Mobile continues to fulfill device orders, ship iPhones activated with wireless service and deliver Help Desk support for customers across several industries, providing iPhone outsourcing services that speed implementations without burdening internal IT staff.

"For companies planning an iPhone rollout -- or organizations that anticipate they will -- this paper offers advice based on our real-world experience with large iPhone deployments," said Mort Rosenthal, Enterprise Mobile CEO. "Enterprise Mobile works closely with enterprises to understand their specific requirements, and devise and implement an effective mobility strategy that takes advantage of the capabilities the iPhone provides for business users. Through many implementations, we have streamlined deployments for the iPhone -- and more recently the iPad -- to help companies rapidly achieve their mobility goals."
