Spectralink Versity Smartphone Receives Android Enterprise Recommended Certification
DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spectralink, a leader in enterprise mobile solutions, today announced the Spectralink Versity enterprise smartphone is Android Enterprise Recommended for both rugged and knowledge worker mobile devices. Spectralink Versity, recognized in this Google-led program, empowers organizations to improve communications, enhance operational efficiency, and boost productivity with an enterprise-grade device that is easy to deploy and manage.
Today’s mobile workers require smart, durable devices that provide high-quality communications and reliable, ready access to critical data and information amid diverse and often-demanding work environments. These range from vast retail distribution centers, to hospital emergency departments, to industrial manufacturing plants.
Research shows that the demand for enterprise-grade durability is on the rise. In a 2019 forecast, for example, research firm IDC reports the number of rugged mobile devices being shipped worldwide is increasing as enterprise organizations look to mobilize larger segments of their workforces. And Android is positioned to be the dominant mobile OS in the rugged mobile device space, according to IDC.
The Android Enterprise Recommended program makes it easier for organizations to select, deploy, and manage enterprise devices and services by ensuring devices measure up to the program’s strict standards. Google validated Spectralink’s Versity due to its tough enterprise feature set, meeting the rigorous requirements of its Android Enterprise Recommended testing program.
