Around 4.2 million people, employed across a range of industries in the UK, worked remotely throughout the course of 2015*. With changing attitudes and the introduction of mobility-enabling tools, this number is expected to grow rapidly to represent more than half of the UK’s working population by 2020.

With nearly 28% of comms resellers expecting Enterprise Mobility to generate new revenue streams**, channel partners who can offer their customers’ staff a seamless mobile/remote working experience will be able to establish a competitive advantage.

Ericsson-LG’s iPECS Cloud Mobile (iCM) adds to the brand’s extensive range of unified communication and collaboration tools and enhances mobility by introducing cloud-based PBX functionality directly to mobile devices.

Whether your customers choose a bring-your-own-device (BYOD), or a corporate-owned, personally enabled (COPE) policy, iCM will help minimise the challenges and mitigate the risks that come with them.

iCM embeds PBX functionality directly onto the SIM card and makes provisioning and setting up a hassle-free experience. It also ensures the functionality remains unchanged regardless of the device used or the operating system preferred by the user. The fact that PBX functionality comes pre-embedded onto the SIM eliminates the need to install third-party software and provides both customers and their end-users with greater peace of mind.

From an end-user perspective, iCM can help improve efficiency as there is no need to boot additional applications. The PBX functions are accessible from the time they power up their devices. Users will be able to use their mobile device as their phone extension and seamlessly transfer calls to and from the office, become a part of hunt groups, direct internal calls from mobile extensions and even record calls to guarantee the highest levels of compliance.

Adding Ericsson-LG’s iPECS Cloud Mobile solution to your portfolio will undoubtedly help you gain a competitive advantage and help drive your customers’ Enterprise Mobility enablement goals.

iPECS Cloud Mobile is merely the tip of the iceberg. With a range of end-to-end solutions to enable mobility across businesses large and small, Ericsson-LG Enterprise is poised to help you gain a first-mover advantage in the ever-so-competitive comms reseller space.
