At Last, a Software Solution that Unlocks the Potential of BYOD


Asentinel’s Managed Mobility Services solves the challenges enterprises face implementing a successful Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy

The Challenges of BYOD

Your business’ most productive employees want to be mobile accessible by phone and email, and to using the devices of their choice. Their line between work and life is blurry, and they don’t want to carry two devices everywhere. However, enabling these employees creates complications for an IT department whose mission is to enable business while managing security risks.

Enterprises must form a plan for managing costs, support, and security. IT departments are tasked with supporting an ever-growing variety of devices, each highly customized with different apps and services specific to the user.

BYOD SolutionsLiability for the devices is also something else to consider in a BYOD deployment. When a phone is dropped or a data plan is exceeded, is the employee liable or does that fall on the company?

To further complicate matters, many solution providers that provide mobility services have missed the mark. According to Gartner’s 2016 report, “Magic Quandrant for Managed Mobility Services, Worldwide,” many of our competitor’s clients have had dissatisfaction with project management, reporting capabilities and a poor UI in older systems. They have also had inconsistent service levels relating to account and technical management across geographies.

While BYOD has been around for years, many companies have struggled on the implementation and ongoing management. The success (or failure) of any BYOD deployment depends heavily on having a way for both users and IT administrators to centrally manage the process.

“The Asentinel® team and their MMS solution have been extremely valuable to us, placing everything we need at our fingertips. Their response time and flexibility have allowed us to unload time-consuming tasks while enabling us to adapt mobility management to the specific requirements of Netflix’s unique culture. With MMS, our employees have the freedom and responsibility to be an integral part of the mobility management process.”

Meet the solution that enabled successful BYOD strategies for hundreds of companies

image001At Asentinel, we’ve spent a lot of time helping our clients work through these issues over the years. Through countless hours working with CIOs, Procurement Officers, HR Officers and our clients’ employees, we’ve developed a software solution that address client challenges of a BYOD environment, respects the needs of the company, and strikes the right balance between your company’s need for control and personal privacy and flexibility.

Today, our software provides a complete, global view into mobile network and device contracts, with self-service capabilities to purchase, provision and activate service and devices to support a BYOD environment. You can easily and scalably move, add, change, and delete services and plans for your employees.

And now your employees can use our self-service portal to lock and unlock their devices, review compliance and request personalized services.

We have optimized our solution from all angles – deployment, security, support costs, employee satisfaction – all while allowing your employees the flexibility to use their device. In our BYOD approach the employee is liable for the device, but the company is liable for the service plan, simplifying support and lowering the company’s total cost of ownership.

With Managed Mobility Services, Asentinel supports BYOD deployments by creating a centrally managed single user profile for each employee. Our clients now have one place to go to review an individual’s mobile spending, preventing out-of-policy errors and unnecessary work. Additionally, now the company remains in control of the services, security and support for those devices.

The entire mobility management workflow – from provisioning and payment through security and support – must be automated and on one easy-to-use platform that enables admins and users to manage many tasks under the system’s control.
Users (and devices) and businesses (and administrators) can now connect via an easy-to-use, centralized management platform, all delivered in the cloud.

Breaking News: Tangoe to be combined with Asentinel


Tangoe to be combined with Asentinel to create a market leader

LOS ANGELES & ORANGE, Conn. & MEMPHIS, Tenn. April 28, 2017 — Marlin Equity Partners (“Marlin”), a global investment firm, announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all outstanding shares of Tangoe, Inc. (OTCPK:TNGO) (“Tangoe”) for $6.50 per share in cash. Tangoe is a global leader in telecom expense management (“TEM”) solutions that enable enterprises to manage and optimize spend across multiple IT categories by providing visibility into the complex processes associated with their assets and expenses.

“After careful consideration and deliberation, our Board of Directors concluded that the sale of Tangoe to Marlin was in the best interest of Tangoe and its shareholders,” said Jerry Kokos, Executive Chairman of Tangoe. “Given its deep bench of operational resources and excellent track record of acquiring and growing businesses in the TEM market, Marlin is an ideal partner for Tangoe. This transaction provides the opportunity for immediate and substantial value to Tangoe shareholders, while also allowing Tangoe greater flexibility to execute on its long-term strategic vision.”

At closing, Marlin intends to combine Tangoe with its existing portfolio company Asentinel, a provider of TEM software and services. The combination would create a market leader managing more than $38 billion of IT and telecom spend on behalf of over 1,300 customers worldwide. The new company would operate under the Tangoe brand with Jim Foy continuing to serve as CEO, with Tim Whitehorn, CEO of Asentinel, serving as the Chief Product Officer.

“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Marlin and combine with Asentinel, and see tremendous benefit in combining Tangoe’s global scale and comprehensive offering with Asentinel’s heritage of technological innovation,” said Mr. Foy. “The breadth and depth of our combined product and service capabilities, delivered on a global scale, should enable us to provide a compelling value proposition to our customers,” added Mr. Whitehorn.

“We look forward to working closely with the Tangoe and Asentinel teams to develop world-class solutions and drive customer success,” said Peter Chung, a principal at Marlin. “This agreement further supports Marlin’s long-term commitment to the TEM market and the value we believe these solutions deliver to customers.”
