We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable features are visibility and remote access.""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.""We can do auto patch updates using SOTI. SOTI has been well placed in terms of the number of endpoints it can handle.""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 remote control we have helps us a lot.""The most valuable features are remote control and geo-fencing.""The SOTI MobiControl Assist tool is very good for remote controlling devices for troubleshooting. SOTI MobiControl is very helpful.""The installation is very straightforward."

"The feature with the highest rating for me is its employee management. I can also praise how versatile it is in terms of operating systems. It has good support for multiple operating systems and can easily manage them all. Not just that, but it can also support any kind of tool that can be run on all these operating systems.""The most valuable feature of the solution is that it enables us to remotely manage the devices, which is its purpose, and to push applications to the mobile devices from the portal.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the tracking of the devices.""The location and remote management services are the most valuable.""From a remote management perspective, I like the management and the inventory.""The most valuable feature depends on the use case of the clients. However, one feature I like is the Kiosk Mode. In the Kiosk Mode in most cases, the clients only can make available one application developed by the solution and permit the employee or the final client to use only this one application for interaction. This provides a security control layer limiting only one application functionally.""The most valuable feature is the interface with SCAP, which is the Security Content Automation Protocol.""It's a tool that can be managed in various departments."

Cons
"There is room for improvement when it comes to the ability to customize devices and choosing what information goes onto them.""In the next release, they should make it easier to migrate.""Adding more features for iOS devices would be an improvement.""Its user interface needs to be improved.""The solution could use better reporting.""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.""SOTI MobiControl could improve by being more user-friendly."

"Its performance is quite good on Apple phones or even mid-range phones. If you install an AirWatch on a phone that is not too powerful, you will have performance issues. That's only because the phone is not too powerful, and there is not enough memory, etc. They could do a lighter version for a less powerful phone. It would also be useful for very small companies that don't want to spend money on expensive phones. Having said that, I don't think that is their target market. If their target market is enterprise, all enterprises perhaps have an agreement with Google or Apple, and they would get a phone that has already been tested, and they know that AirWatch will work on that phone.""There should be better compatibility with Linux devices.""Technical support needs to be more responsive to our requests.""There are some bugs that our team needs to work around. It required some API integration required because visitor integration was not there. For example, we are currently working on a tunnel issue, and VMware doesn't have this solution.""The SaaS environment is not very responsive at times, so the performance can be improved in that regard.""I would like to see improvements made to both the support, and the pricing.""Cost of licensing is quite high.""They need a more flexible pricing model."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
