New, integrated solution provides enterprise users with a unified mobile
application, carrier plan optimization, and data tracking by application
ORANGE, Conn. -- June 4, 2013
Tangoe, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNGO), a leading global provider of Communications
Lifecycle Management (CLM) software and related services, today announced new
integrated versions of its Mobile Device Management (Tangoe MDM) and Real-Time
Telecom Expense Management (Tangoe rTEM) solutions. This integration allows
enterprise customers to take advantage of new features including a single
mobile client application, called Tangoe Mobile, for combined MDM and rTEM
functionality, enhanced geo-fence policy enforcement capabilities, and a
carrier plan optimization tool that identifies cost-effective carrier plan
“Many of Tangoe’s global enterprise customers are focused on growth via
mobility in 2013, and they require real-time contextual awareness that
optimizes mobile usage and protects their IP throughout the entire lifecycle
of mobile devices and their applications,” said Al Subbloie, president, CEO,
and founder of Tangoe. “The combined functionality of our market-leading MDM
and rTEM solutions address these issues and provides our enterprise customers
with increased control over mobile devices entering the enterprise as well as
real-time visibility into employee usage.”
Tangoe Mobile combines Tangoe’s previous MDM and the rTEM client applications
into a single, on-device application. The unified MDM/rTEM interface will be
available for download via the App Store for iOS and via Google Play for
Android, in early July 2013. Using Tangoe Mobile, end-users can manage
applications, track usage compared to carrier plans, and receive usage
notifications from IT. Tangoe Mobile also enables multiple geo-fence policies
on each device, which are tied to location-based usage rules, allowing
automatic policy enforcement based on real-time device location tracking. This
provides significant benefits especially in the healthcare, financial
services, and government sectors, where geo-based security is crucial.
In addition to the integrated on-device application, the latest versions of
Tangoe MDM and rTEM have enhanced capabilities that support the management of
Tangoe rTEM now includes:
*Carrier Plan Optimizer – Based on historical usage for voice, SMS, and
data, Tangoe rTEM recommends to the administrator the best carrier plan
for each user. This is especially beneficial for enterprises in locations
where there are no pooled plans, such as Europe, as well as for
organizations in the U.S. that are not participating in pooled plans.
*Application-specific Data Tracking – Provides visibility into the specific
data usage of each application on a device. This data enables more
informed decisions regarding application usage and devices’ corresponding
costs of operation.
Tangoe MDM new capabilities include:
*Integration with Samsung SAFE™ – Provides enterprise-grade device
management and security on Samsung devices.
*Enhanced Windows Phone 8 Support – Tangoe MDM supports a better Windows
Phone 8 user experience with a Windows Phone 8 optimized user interface,
support for new display resolutions, and a streamlined device activation
*Support for BlackBerry® 10 – Tangoe MDM now supports BlackBerry 10
devices, device services, and PlayBook™, including integrated and secure
BDS synch for policy enforcement.
The new version of Tangoe MDM is compatible with operating systems including
Android, iOS 6, BlackBerry 10, and Windows Phone 8.
