I'm not sure how many of you ever need to create a business case for a Windows Mobile deployment, but if you do, we have created a GREAT tool for you.
If you are a Certified or Gold MSPP Partner, you can get access to the Windows Mobile Business Value Assessment.
The Windows Mobile Business Value Assessment tool gives you immediate visibility into the impact of deploying mobile business solutions for your clients. Using a company’s unique information, such as number of mobile workers or types of applications to be mobilized, and summary data from IDC, the tool allows you to quantify the benefits and the direct and indirect costs of deploying mobile line-of-business applications. These benefits and costs include measurable impact on revenue and income, operating expense savings, productivity enhancements, and other strategic business improvements. These metrics can then help you create the business justification for a Windows Mobile solution for your customers.
So, just how much of an impact can Windows Mobile have on your clients’ business? The answer is just a few clicks away.
The tool even creates a Power Point preso for you, and also Word docs that you can leave behind with the customer (with you own logo that you can upload intot eh tool via the settings).
This tool focuses on Line of Business application deployment, but we will be adding another module around messaging/unified communications in the coming months.
So, if you are in MSPP and want a tool to help you sell Windows Mobile to you customers, this is it!
