How do you manage your out-of-contact devices?

How do you manage your out-of-contact devices?

Posted by Jason Holloway 11 June 2018

Unused devices represent a significant wasted opportunity (and cost) for a Mobile IT deployment. Devices that are sitting unpowered in user's drawers, lying forgotten at home, or otherwise ignored, represent a direct financial loss to the business and also an opportunity cost in potential productivity gains. How do you recover those devices and repurpose that initial investment?

Wouldn't it be great if you could find, recover and recycle these devices AND improve your mobility project's return on investment? With IronWorks you can. IronWorks can let you see just the devices that haven't been in regular contact with your core and will show you their last known location and how long they've been out of contact for. 

Of course you probably want to share this information with relevant teams too.  With IronWorks you can download a CSV file with all the device details and quickly and easily share this with the relevant team and line-of-business managers, HR personnel and, of course, the finance department. 

IronWorks can let you see just the devices that haven't been in regular contact with your core and will show you their last known location and how long they've been out of contact for. 

We don't claim that IronWorks will enable you to recover all of your out-of-contact devices, but at an average cost of over £400 per device, how much of a cost-saving would a 10%, or even 20%, recovery rate represent to your business?
