We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The technical support for the solution is excellent."
"If a device is stolen, you have the power to remove all of the contents remotely. You can do this very quickly."
"The containerization of the workspace is what we have found to be the most valuable."
"The most valuable features are visibility and remote access."
"The remote control we have helps us a lot."
"We can do auto patch updates using SOTI. SOTI has been well placed in terms of the number of endpoints it can handle."
"The most valuable features are remote control and geo-fencing."
"All features are useful. It is useful for preventing the use of unauthorized software on corporate-owned devices. It provides an option to lock the devices for unauthorized software. The devices can only be used under the supervision of the device manager."
"The installation is very straightforward."
"SOTI's most valuable feature has to be mobile device management and visibility through the main console. There's a central dashboard that you can use to monitor the devices and keep track of usage, battery consumption, and battery life."
"It is very reliable, and their support is excellent."
"More devices supported like iOS, Android, and API so it can support various platforms to enhance the experience."
"One fault that BlackBerry has is its salesforce. Their direct salesforce department is changing its salespeople constantly. One client I had, over a period of about three years, went through four salespeople. That continuity is a problem, in terms of dealing with the customers."
"It would be ideal if there was something for communication with Microsoft tools like Teams or Skype for Business, or perhaps even with Zoom for conference calls."
"The pain points for us would be the activation."
"There is room for improvement when it comes to the ability to customize devices and choosing what information goes onto them."
"The solution could use better reporting."
"In the next release, they should make it easier to migrate."
"Adding more features for iOS devices would be an improvement."
"The pricing policy of SOTI is not stable. You buy it today at one price, and the following year, it becomes something like 5% or 7% higher. From my point of view, SOTI is a little bit weak in terms of implementation on the new Windows 10 devices, and they have to work on this. It can't compete with Intune and other solutions when it comes to Windows implementation. It almost doesn't work with iOS. It works well with Android."
"It would be helpful if the product offered more integration and more features around the iOS and macOS platforms."
"Companies like SOTI and Mobile Iron are working with Google to help them manage these devices and eliminate the use of bar code scanner sales and mobile device sales. That's kind of crazy."
"Its user interface needs to be improved."
"We pay about $6 a year for the solution. There are no extra costs on top of that. You save a lot of money when you use this product."
"We currently pay by the year, but the licenses are calculated on a monthly basis."
"There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
"Its pricing policy is not stable. The licensing is on a one-yearly, two-yearly, or three-yearly basis. There is no monthly fee."
"SOTI is fairly priced. It's not super expensive. If you have a thousand devices that are licensed, it's going to start climbing up in price. Typically, it's like 25 bucks a seat for a year."
