Mobile device management has become increasingly popular as administrators look to gain control over mobile devices. Some organization want to leverage key MDM functions but lack the complexity to justify the cost and resources commonly associated with enterprise-oriented solutions.
Last week Unwired Revolution launched DeviceLink – a free mobile device management solution. DeviceLink has been available in limited release for more than nine months with customers all over the world, and we have seen tremendous use of the service. From small businesses, to schools, to government agencies, DeviceLink has made iOS device management easy and accessible. Why should you consider DeviceLink?
