SOTI MobiControl – part of the SOTI ONE Platform – gives organizations the ability to track the real-time movement of devices whether they’re indoors or outdoors. Visibility into the location of devices is critical to ensure organizational or industry compliance, protect employee safety and, should a device ever become lost or stolen, the ability to find it.

Regarding the ability to locate a misplaced device, approximately 4.3% of company issued smartphones are lost or stolen each year and of that 4.3% only 7% are recovered. In healthcare, that means delays in accessing patient history to provide timely care. In transportation and logistics (T&L), that means trucks sitting at the warehouse instead of hitting the road. In retail, handheld scanners are also at risk of being stolen or lost. In fact, an individual was caught stealing over 100 scanners at a loss of over $500,000 to retailers.
Using 1,000 devices as a baseline, as it’s expected that 69% of organizations will manage 1,000+ devices by 2025, the math isn’t great:
Consider the data stored on your corporate devices. Now consider that a single device compromised with data-stealing malware costs a business an average of $9,485 (USD). And finally, consider the fact that when a single device is lost, an organization loses $50,000 (USD) in productivity. Now multiply those numbers by 40. That’s $379,400 lost to malware and $2,000,000 in lost productivity.
Could you afford to have that many devices disappear and never be found?
Finding lost or stolen devices is just one benefit of EMM or Mobile Device Management (MDM). Check out the infographic below to learn the other smart reasons to track indoor and outdoor device location.
Indoor and Outdoor Device Location is Available in SOTI MobiControl
SOTI MobiControl can monitor the real-time location of your business-critical mobile devices, no matter where they are. Indoors, SOTI MobiControl uses Wi-Fi positioning to locate devices within as little as three feet. Outdoors, it uses a combination of the device’s GPS signal, Wi-Fi and cellular connections to determine device location.
Your devices are critical to employee productivity, customer satisfaction and overall business success. Make certain you always know where they are with real-time indoor and outdoor device location tracking with SOTI MobiControl.
