Device Lifecycle Management

Want proactive support to help your IT team address the challenges of managing mobile devices & users? Utelize can help.

Take the hassle out of mobile device purchasing, in-life support and end-of-life recycling with Utelize.

The rapid growth of smartphones and tablets has brought with it a whole range of new challenges for IT teams to manage. Whilst device and data security are always of paramount importance, the effective management of devices from their initial sourcing and staging through to end-of-life processes like recycling, data cleansing and device trade-in, are becoming a growing drain on already stretched IT teams. As a result, businesses with larger mobile estates are starting to consider the management of mobile devices as a structured ‘lifecycle’ process, in the same way that they treat other mobile user computing.

Utelize’s Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) services bring together market leading mobile device distributors, logistics and finance firms, to deliver a one-stop Enterprise grade service to address these growing challenges. We provide a flexible range of services delivered either on a project basis or as an ongoing managed service. Helping your business to reduce mobile device and support costs, whilst freeing up your IT team for more strategic work.
