Is Windows 10 Mobile Right For Your Business?

windows_10_mobile_____rig_112363_208076-150x150Microsoft is making another play for the mobile market, having recently released the Lumina 950 and 950XL, running on the Windows 10 Mobile platform. Cost wise, they’re a bit more expensive than the products with which they’re competing, which may make them non-starters for some. Additionally, there’s the fact that Microsoft is such a late entrant to the mobile world, this for some may make it too big an inconvenience to switch, but there are at least two features that make Windows 10 Mobile worth considering.

The first is security. Nobody does two-factor authentication like Windows 10. The first factor is the registered and network recognized device itself. If it’s stolen, you can simply take it off the access list, and it won’t be able to connect, regardless. The second factor is the optical reader. Simply looking at the phone is enough to unlock it, which is a big win (it also comes with a thumbprint scanner for those who prefer that). This is a big deal, and is an Enterprise-grade security solution, simply not offered by Android or Apple devices.

The second is, oddly enough, Cortana. Cortana is Windows’ answer to Siri, and the big surprise is, she’s superior in almost every way. Most tellingly is the fact that she’s contextual in nature. For example, if you’ve prompted Cortana to give you a reminder to mention “X” to Bill, the next time you talk to him, when you open your email and address it to Bill, Cortana will pop in with your reminder.

She can also compare your ticket information and calendar entries with real time travel schedules gathered from airport databases to remind you when it’s time to depart for the airport if you’re going on a trip, and keep track of correspondence between you and people you’re meeting with to provide suggestions of data that might be helpful to you when going into a meeting with those same people.

These are significant advantages, and whether more expensive or not, are certainly compelling enough for some to consider making the switch. It all comes down to what you want and need your technology to do for you.

Dedicated to his client and is a very personable person. I would like to endorse Rob Lloyds work as IT support and administrator for one of our acquisition firms in East Hartford. Rob was instrumental in getting our ERP system running and resolved maintenance issues immediately and professionally. I worked with Rob for over a year and he has gone above and beyond just as an IT resource. Rob helped me with my Lean Six Sigma cost reduction projects that were well received by upper management and more importantly our customers. He was also instrumental in helping me get our company re certified as ISO 9001 Rev C by creating a customer database that was required by the ISO requirements. I would highly recommend Rob’s work experience and knowledge in the future if results are driving your company. It has been a pleasure working with Rob which was easy and has become a friend. I am currently working at another one of our acquisitions and ran across a problem and he made himself available to help me with my computer issue so I was not down long. He is dedicated to his client and is a very personable person

He took the initiative. Robert was in charge of maintaining the accounting software and although he never worked in the product, he was always able to troubleshoot an issue we were having. He took the initiative to get to the bottom of what happened and would somehow always find a way to fix it.

Rob has provided technology support to my law practice for over seven years.  He is knowledgeable, personable and incredibly responsive. When I need his help in a hurry, he responds quickly and always fixes the issues. I am not particularly adept when it comes to office technology, so I rely on Rob for his explanations and suggestions.  He is proactive in his approach, and his solutions have been economical and extremely helpful in making my office run smoothly. I highly recommend TechNet Computing for tech support.
