MokiMobility Launches First Purposed Device Management Mobile Application for iPhone Launch to enable retailers and hotel chains to manage and monitor tablet kiosks and mPOS devices from their iPhone
SALT LAKE CITY, July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Emerging purposed device management platform, MokiMobility, today announced the launch of the industry's first purposed device management mobile application for the iPhone, MokiManage Mobile.
MokiManage Mobile is an iPhone application for managing tablets and smartphones as purposed devices under MokiMobility's existing MokiManage solution. The app, which is unique to all versions of the iPhone, provides retailers, hotel managers and IT staff, etc. with the ability to manage iOS and Android devices, as well as tablet and mobile Kiosks, mPOS and digital signage, from anywhere at any time via personal or company issued iPhones.
While the MokiManage platform is perfect for managing purposed devices remotely from a PC or Laptop, administrators sometimes need the ability to configure and monitor their fleet of devices remotely. MokiManage Mobile now enables administrators to simply manage and access purposed devices from their own mobile phones. Using MokiManage Mobile, administrators can now apply or remove profiles, complete updates or monitor connectivity status with the swipe of a finger, whether at home, on the road or while standing directly in front of a device.
Additional Key Features of MokiManage Mobile Include:
- Search capabilities for devices by filters or tags
- Insight into the current connectivity status of individual devices
- Management of installed apps and profiles in bulk or on individual devices
- Ability to perform common actions such as app lock, refresh and factory reset
- Real-time look into the secure state of bulk or individual devices
The launch of MokiManage Mobile will be critical to the success of the mPOS market as the industry progresses towards increased adoption of purposed devices, in particular, within retail and hospitality. A recent Forrester research report in fact cites the investment of mobile process reinvention to top $7.6 billion by 2015 across multiple vertical industries, with $3.9 billion of that being spent on mobile managed device services.
"Given the importance of securing and monitoring mission-critical deployments, we wanted to provide administrators the right tool to be able to respond immediately to issues with their devices. The MokiManage Mobile app now gives them control to do so like never before," said Ty Allen, Vice President of Business Development at MokiMobility. "Our mobile app offers administrators the ability to manage and configure devices right from their iPhone – now administrators can reconfigure a device quickly from digital signage to an mPOS device with a few taps – it's pretty game changing for retailers and hotel chains."
The MokiMobility Mobile application is currently available for free on the iTunes app store – for more information on the app, visit www.mokimobility.com.

Based in Lehi, Utah, MokiMobility is the first and only cloud platform for managing, monitoring and securing purposed mobile devices as mobile point-of-sale solutions, kiosks, digital signage and more. Independent software vendors (ISVs) and solution providers can integrate the management and monitoring features of MokiManage directly into their own tablet solutions running on the iPad, iPod touch and Android devices. As a result, tablet solution customers have greater control over the complete experience, enabling more engaging and new customer experiences leveraging iOS and Android tablets in new ways.
