Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution is easy to implement.""Using this solution has made things more convenient. Earlier, we had to depend a lot more on IT to find and resolve our issues.""Maas360 uses distribution groups to deploy apps, which makes it a bit easier than, for example, Intune.""We've found the scalability to be very good.""The most valuable feature is the fact that we can find a lost device or shut the device down and wipe it is good for HIPAA.""The solution is quite stable.""All features that we have deployed are useful. We do access office emails on our smartphones, and we have complete sync with Active Directory. Our calendar also gets synced in the MaaS360 application. We also ensure that the data from these official applications is not being misused by any of the employees. We have disabled cut, copy, paste, and all such features. It ensures that all the official data that our employees have on their smartphones is secure. Security is the paramount feature that we value in this product.""Remote enablement feature and access to internal resources on the VPN."

"The most valuable features are remote control and geo-fencing.""We can do auto patch updates using SOTI. SOTI has been well placed in terms of the number of endpoints it can handle.""The remote control we have helps us a lot.""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.""The most valuable features are visibility and remote access.""It is very reliable, and their support is excellent.""The SOTI MobiControl Assist tool is very good for remote controlling devices for troubleshooting. SOTI MobiControl is very helpful.""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."

Cons
"The price could be lower.""The user interface could definitely use some improvement.""The look needs to be updated and it could be simpler to use.""User interface is basic and not very intuitive.""When we have MaaS360 installed on smartphones, it consumes the battery of the device at a much faster pace. This is one of the areas of improvement that I would like to highlight. We have also observed that in the contact list, a lot of duplication is happening. A single contact is duplicated three or four times, which also consumes more memory resources. If they can work on improving it for these aspects, it will have a more positive impact not only on the way the application is being consumed by the user but also on user satisfaction. A lot of new features are being deployed or rolled out by companies that are competitors of IBM MaaS360. IBM will have to ensure that all those features are on board so that we have a complete suite of features in the platform, rather than deploying multiple diverse solutions to cater to the requirements of our customers.""The solution needs to offer live technical support. Right now, it's just a chat window and it's rather unhelpful.""Zero day support is something they can work on. They can make it a little bit more user-friendly.""Local technical support would be helpful."

"SOTI MobiControl could improve by being more user-friendly.""Its user interface needs to be improved.""It would be helpful if the product offered more integration and more features around the iOS and macOS platforms.""The solution could use better reporting.""Adding more features for iOS devices would be an improvement.""There is room for improvement when it comes to the ability to customize devices and choosing what information goes onto them.""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.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Fees are monthly and it's approximately $8 per user."
  • "Price is something for which we are always under pressure. If we have to look at the MaaS deployment, the price definitely has to come down. This is clearly one of the areas that we will have to work on, not only as a provider to our customers but also as a consumer of this service."
  • "I feel the pricing to be very high."
  • "MaaS360 is priced at a balance. It is not as expensive as AirWatch or Jamf and is not a cheap solution like a few of the local products."

  • "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."
  • "We have annual licenses to use this solution."
