Device and application management as-a-service
A changing mobility landscape
Is your business meeting the mobility challenge?
The mobility landscape is changing – is your organisation keeping pace?
There's no avoiding it – the business mobility landscape is rapidly evolving. Newer operating systems are rapidly replacing formerly dominant devices and management systems, and while legacy mobile solutions are highly secure, limitations in devices don’t always meet the needs of today's mobile workforce.
While iOS, Windows and Android undoubtedly offer a great user experience, rich feature set and abundant apps, without the right systems in place they can upset the balance between employees’ wants and what your business actually needs.
Your people need the right combination of applications and devices to stay agile and productive. But it’s easy to get bogged down in the ever-changing specs between the various options.
At Maintel we've harnessed our expertise and unparalleled device portfolio to develop ICON Secure, a portfolio of mobile device solutions delivered as a fully managed service.
ICON Mobilise works for you, simplifying the management of your mobile workers and optimising their productivity. Our solutions also enable you to maintain tight security and control of your mobile devices and data, while unlocking the productivity benefits you need to maintain a competitive edge.
We help you re-evaluate your mobile device choices and how you manage them, finding the best-fit solution to make sure your business runs more smoothly.

The Maintel difference
Delivering device and application management as-a-service
Your mobile strategy has to fit your specific environment, people, objectives and challenges. Without the right level of planning and resources to deliver it, even a well-considered approach can suffer from a lack of user buy-in and fail to meet its objectives.
With ICON Secure we start with you, building a tailored mobility solution that directly addresses your business needs and goals – all delivered as a service that relieves you of the day-to-day burden of managing a mobile workforce.
Our ICON Mobilise solutions help businesses facing all kinds of mobility challenges, including:
Replacing ageing devices and management systems
Enabling employees to bring personal devices to work (BYOD) and gain secure access to corporate email and information
Fearing smartphone security risks and loss of sensitive data
Making more people mobile and increasing employee responsiveness and productivity
Securing and managing company-owned devices
Adopting a multi-device, multi-OS policy to offer greater choice and flexibility.
Our ICON Mobilise service is fully scalable to suit requirements from 50 up to 10,000 mobile devices, and can easily flex up and down with your business. Delivered on a monthly fee per-device, we match the right user licenses and deployment architecture options to your needs.
ICON Mobilise deployment options include:
Cloud-based – all components are cloud delivered
Cloud/customer premises – partially hosted and the rest installed on site
Premise-based - all components are installed at a customer’s site.
During implementation the platform software is installed remotely or during a site visit, before configuration is applied and checked to minimise any risk to you. We’ll test the end-to-end functionality, configure your initial devices and set up your desired policy settings for a smooth handover.
Once your people have been migrated onto the managed service, we assume full responsibility for the functionality, operation and ongoing management of your mobile estate. This includes transparent communication with you and your people on how to get the help and support you need, and how you can make changes during the life of the managed service.
ICON Mobilise features
Meeting your mobility needs
Keep pace with ever-evolving mobile technology
Infrastructure, maintenance, support and training make keeping pace with evolving technology a real challenge. Many lack the internal expertise and budget to effectively deploy, secure and manage the latest mobile devices and apps, and with countless enterprise mobility management solutions on the market, finding the right one takes up time better spent elsewhere.
With ICON Mobilise you can embrace a device-independent strategy with an expert partner to shoulder the day-to-day management and support burden.
Outsource the complexity of mobilising your people
Deploy, manage and secure all mobile devices centrally, regardless of type or OS (includes BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Apple and Android)
Manage and enforce polices over the air for both corporate and employee-owned mobile devices
Enforce passwords and remote lock
Wipe corporate data, email or contacts if devices are lost or stolen.
Securely store and view documents from corporate data stores, either on-premise or in the cloud
Separate business and personal apps and manage the entire app lifecycle, from storefront to authentication and retirement
Access corporate intranet content with a secure browser without requiring a VPN client on the device
Enforce data loss prevention policies dynamically on mobile devices
Tailoring a mobile solution that fits your business
No two organisations are identical – so neither are our ICON Mobilise solutions. Maintel's mobile solutions are built from:
- Foundation services – the core of every solution. These include a choice of market leading MDM solutions, managed by us. Foundation services focus on the management of your users, devices and the associated policy and configuration profiles.
- Enhanced services – select from a range of service options designed to fulfil more complex device management requirements, particularly enterprise application mobilisation and management.
- Custom services – our experts help you to tackle customised, bespoke projects that can deliver real differentiation for your business.
Each ICON Mobilise solution is put together to best fit your specific requirements. If your focus is tightening device and data security, implementing BYOD, embracing multiple devices and OS or delivering seamless access to your internal content and business applications – ICON Mobilise can be adapted to suit.
As mobile apps become business-critical and widely adopted, ICON Mobilise provides end-to-end security and management of enterprise access, applications, documents and content.
ICON Mobilise: key benefits
Staying one step ahead
Secure and manage email, apps, documents and web accessed by users on their mobile devices (regardless of who owns the device or what the device is). Let us handle the tasks and reduce the risks that modern mobile IT environments bring.
Mobile management that evolves with you
ICON Mobilise is a comprehensive mobile infrastructure that supports your mobile needs – across applications, content and devices – both today and in the future. ICON Mobilise lets you quickly and easily adopt new ways of working, new devices and different applications.
We give you the ability to keep pace with evolving technology and the freedom to select devices without restrictions – ICON Mobilise allows you to support multiple OS and devices to deliver the best fit and the best experience for your people.
An expert partner to lean on
We work closely with you to make sure you get all the benefits of a mobile workforce, without any of the challenges. And as your needs evolve and change, we’ll help you determine the best course of action and deliver it as part of our managed service.
An initial set-up fee covers the service creation, migration, installation and configuration of your individual solution. It’s flexible, so you can scale the number of users as needed and add new features and services in-life to ensure your mobile solution and business needs never drift too far apart.
Flexible and transparent costs
ICON Mobilise delivers outsourced day-to-day management and support for a simple fee per device. And with minimal capital investment needed on your infrastructure, maintenance, support and people costs, ICON Mobilise unlocks significant savings.
There are simple per-device pricing options for each of the two levels of managed service (standard and enhanced). Payable annually, the managed solution includes all service, MDM licensing and management charges in one simple bill.
We’re experts at managing your critical mobile communications. But to ensure your peace of mind, we offer strict service level agreements (SLAs) which make sure your service is doing exactly what you need it to do, without disruptions.
All run-of-the-mill administrative tasks are performed using our management platform. This service is provided independently of the mobile network provider, and we’ll manage your devices irrespective of who supplied them, their capability (cellular and/or Wi-Fi) or network provider.
