ATLANTA, Dec. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Movius, a global provider of cloud-based enterprise mobility solutions, today unveiled Movius Work Phone™, the first and only smartphone application to mobilize business phones to mobile devices leveraging either TDM voice or VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) services on any employee preferred smart device and telecom carrier. The powerful SaaS-based business mobility solution also provides real-time information to IT and compliance managers for work-related voice, messaging and data consumption. This helps enterprises reduce expenses and control costs, increase productivity and remain compliant with corporate and industry regulations.
"As BYOD and COPE gains increasing acceptance among enterprises, businesses are realizing that giving employees the freedom of using their own mobile devices for work purposes is opening up a Pandora's box of problems as they relate to record-keeping, expense management and compliance issues," said Dominic Gomez, president and CEO, Movius. "Movius Work Phone solves these issues by providing enterprises with a solution that enables employees to easily segregate business and personal calls, texts and data application usage while simultaneously giving IT departments the ability to measure employee data usage necessary to optimize cost allocations and accurately reimburse employees for their business-related usage."
Movius Work Phone provides enterprises with a wealth of capabilities, including:
- Compliance & Cost Control – Work Phone simplifies auditing and employee reimbursements, meets compliance requirements and optimizes telecommunications expenses with real-time visibility into enterprise wireless telecom services.
- Expense Reduction – Movius Work Phone prevents businesses from receiving enormous mobile phone charges from employees who travel internationally.
- Cross-Carrier Flexibility – Work phone and Split-billing functionality that works with whichever service provider your employees prefer to use.
- Clear, Uninterrupted Communications – Calls are placed over both traditional wireless voice networks (TDM) and VoIP (which includes cellular data 3G/4G/LTE and Wi-Fi) services, ensuring minimal call drop-offs and consistently clear communications on any carrier, whether around the block or around the globe.
- PBX Integration – Full integration with enterprise phone systems such as Polycom provides employees with complete, untethered access to other contacts, emails and company documentation on their devices, whether located in the company's headquarters or in the field.
- EMM Integration – Movius has strong partnerships with some of the world's leading EMM vendors, including AirWatch® and Samsung KNOX™, allowing for enterprises to deploy Work Phone through EMM vendors of choice and having a single point of contact for all needs.

- Professional Services – Movius Professional Services is available around the clock to help enterprises optimize Work Phone to meet their business needs.
"Most enterprises today are allowing their employees to use their own personal mobile devices for business purposes. However, this increasingly presents opportunities for leaked corporate data, expensive costs from international travel and a headache for those within the business who are responsible for keeping the company compliant," said Eric Klein, Director, Mobile Software, VDC Research Group. "Movius Work Phone provides a simple, highly effective and inexpensive solution that can help enterprises to streamline expenses through split-billing capabilities; monitor and regulate costs for business calls, data and texts; and keep an audit of business-related activities to stay compliant."
