Cornelius, NC, November 15, 2017 / / OVATION Wireless Management, an industry leader of Managed Mobility Solutions, is pleased to announce they are celebrating 15 years of outstanding client service this month.
OVATION was founded in 2002 by former wireless carrier veterans Randall Light (OWM CEO), Rex Greer (OWM President) and Lee Newman, (OWM EVP), all long-time business colleagues, who envisioned a full complement of high touch, hands-on mobility management services under one umbrella. Over the last 15 years OVATION has earned its reputation as an industry innovator as it has grown from the initial five employees to a staff of over 100 while creating a unique brand of Wireless Expense Management, MDM and Mobility Support services for an impressive roster of corporate and enterprise clients worldwide.
At the heart of OVATION’s services is the commitment to simplify wireless services while reducing mobility costs and streamlining customers’ mobility programs. Randall Light, CEO, reflects, “Back in 2002, the smartphone did not exist as we know it today. Feature phones were limited in what they could do from a business perspective, texting was just gaining popularity, and soon the BlackBerry device became extremely popular among business users with its secure email platform.”
However, in 2007 the first iPhone launched, changing the world as we knew it, putting the internet in everyone’s pocket and making photography a part of everyday life. iPhone quickly outran BlackBerry as the world’s fastest growing obsession. Rex Greer, OVATION President, continued, “Mobile devices were changing, operating systems were evolving, and our clients started requesting more and more help. “Clients always needed our help in reducing costs, but also wanted assistance each month with their mobility dynamics.”
Light stated, “We developed our own proprietary software tool, Magellan, to optimize thousands of carrier rate plans and built specialized reporting tools for managing every aspect of a business’ monthly mobile lifecycle, including 24/7/365 support. In the last 15 years we have saved our clients over $500 million dollars to be used elsewhere within their organizations.” Greer added “and we are only getting started as the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G network technology will add even more complex challenges and costs as companies try to harness the full power and benefits of an interconnected and real-time world.”
Today 15 years later, in a smartphone world OVATION provides monthly management for Fortune 1000 corporations with global operations to fully focus on reducing the total cost of mobility ownership.
In 2014 OVATION teamed with its sister company, OASIS Mobility Services, to provide much-needed assistance to small businesses’ corporate paid devices and to their employees who may personally pay for their wireless devices and services. All mobile users throughout the U.S. can now access the programs that OVATION offers.
