SAN FRANCISCO, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Visage, the enterprise mobility Software as a Service, announced today that Tech Data (NASDAQ: TECD) has selected Visage MXP as its Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Mobile Expense management solution through TDMobility, its end-to-end mobility solutions destination. Visage MXP will be featured as part of TDMobility's comprehensive BYOD management offering. As part of the agreement, TDMobility will become a Visage Certified Partner.
Visage MXP is integrated with Concur, the leading travel and expense management provider, to offer organizations a solution that automates the monthly reporting of employee-paid mobility expenses. With Visage MXP employee reimbursement becomes quick and easy, while organizations get complete visibility into all mobility spend – regardless of whether it is employee-paid or company-paid.
The shift from corporate-paid mobility programs – where the employer selects and pays for all devices and plans – to employee-paid – where employees get reimbursed for all or part of their mobility expense – has been well documented. According to a recent Gartner report, about half of the world's companies will adopt BYOD programs by 2017, eliminating the need for companies to provide computing devices to employees.
"Our partnership with TDMobility continues our strategy of working with leading channel partners to bring big data and strategic management to enterprise mobility programs," said Mani Zarrehparvar, president, Visage. "No one has a silver bullet for BYOD, but TDMobility is putting together a complete suite of solutions that will benefit any organization struggling with how to manage a BYOD program. We are pleased to be fulfilling the spend management component of this solution."
"Visage MXP will enable our customers to gain control of the cost management of employee-expensed mobility," said Charles Kriete, executive vice president, TDMobility. "Visage's unique and essential technology will help us bring strategic mobility solutions and awareness to our BYOD customers."
