ACS Unveils Smartphone Management Service

Dallas-based business process outsourcing firm Affiliated Computer Services revealed Tuesday that it is now offering a centralized service that will help corporations manage their mobile devices. ACS said the solution, called ACS Managed Mobility Services, will govern all smartphone-related aspects, including procurement, security and expense management. Chris Tranquill, managing director of ACS' Communication and Consumer Goods group, explained in a statement that the new service should alleviate the burden many IT departments shoulder in managing smartphone devices. ACS estimated that its Managed Mobility product could deliver an ongoing cost savings of 15 percent to 20 percent.
