Hay Group Selects iPass for Enterprise Mobility Solution

By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor

Global consulting firm Hay Group has reportedly selected iPass (News - Alert) for its enterprise mobility solution.

iPass officials said that the company’s enterprise mobility service would help Hay Group reduce the overall costs of managing a highly mobile workforce, while helping secure intellectual property assets. 

The service combines worldwide 3G mobile broadband networks, Wi-Fi hotspots, hotel Ethernet and dial-up access with comprehensive management control over connectivity, devices and costs.

With the new selection, Hay Group consultants would now be able to simply, securely and conveniently connect from home, when they travel, and at worldwide client sites, leveraging the largest mobile network in the world with over 140,000 enterprise-grade broadband venues. 

“Forward-thinking, global companies demand enterprise mobility solutions that give visibility and control over user connections and costs no matter where its employees happen to be when they are connecting,” Steven Wastie, senior vice president, marketing, iPass, said in a statement. 

Hay Group is meeting employee demands for anytime, anywhere connectivity while improving the productivity of its mobile workforce, Wastie added.

iPass says that it helps enterprises and individuals unify the management of remote and mobile connectivity. With iPass software and services, enterprise customers can create easy-to-use wireless and broadband solutions for their mobile workers, home offices, and branch and retail locations, complete with web-based management, security validation, and unified billing.

“We're constantly watching our bottom line at Hay Group and we noticed our mobility costs skyrocketing,” Daniel Little, director of customer support at Hay Group, said. “We needed a better way to get visibility of and manage these costs.” 

Once the company moved over to the iPass service, it was a real game changer. 

“From a technology standpoint, iPass just works! We don't have any support calls. And, from a process standpoint, we have eliminated day passes, hotel connectivity charges, mobility support costs -- all those black budget items that ended up on expense reports that no one understood,” Little added.
