COLUMBIA, MD--(Marketwire - Aug 21, 2012) - BoxTone, an innovator of automated Enterprise Mobility Management, today announced that it has been listed as a Champion in Info-Tech Research Group's Mobile Device Management Suites Vendor Landscape (the Report).
In addition, BoxTone was named the Report's overall Value Award winner, based on having the highest Info-Tech Value Score™ relative to competitors.
"BoxTone's entry price for core MDM can't be beat, and modules can be added as greater capabilities are needed," said the Report. "Info-Tech recommends that when application management is key, consider BoxTone. In addition to solid basic MDM, BoxTone excels with unique mobile application development features. Organizations that rely on or are developing mobile applications should pay particular attention to BoxTone. Its cost is also very low if only core MDM is needed."
According to Info-Tech Research Group, Champions receive high scores for most evaluation criteria -- with both the product and the vendor receiving scores that are above the average score for the evaluated group -- and offer excellent value. Champions also have a strong market presence and are trend setters for the industry.
The Value Score indexes each vendor's product offering and business strength relative to their price point. Vendors that score high on the index offer more bang-for-the-buck (e.g. features, usability, stability etc.) than the average vendor, while the inverse is true for those that score lower. As a result of being named overall Value Award winner, all other vendors were indexed against BoxTone's performance to provide a complete, relative view of their product offerings.
"BoxTone is proud to be listed as a Champion in Info-Tech Research Group's Mobile Device Management Suites Vendor Landscape, and for being named the Report's overall Value Award winner," said Alan Snyder, CEO, BoxTone. "Taken together, these recognitions reflect BoxTone's unique ability to pair mobility management innovation with real value to benefit our customers."
Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports recognize outstanding vendors in the technology marketplace. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise, Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscapes pay tribute to the contribution of exceptional vendors in a particular category.
The MDM Report was created by a team of dedicated Info-Tech analysts operating under the direction of a senior subject matter expert over a period of six weeks. The twelve MDM vendors selected for inclusion in the Report were deemed to have passed minimum standards for MDM capabilities known as Table Stakes. Evaluators then weighed the selected vendors and their products on the following eight criteria to determine overall standing: features, usability, affordability, architecture, viability, strategy, reach, and channel.
