AT&T mobilizes the cloud to service small businesses
AT&T has launched a cloud-based platform that was designed to help small businesses share content among co-workers’ mobile devices.
AT&T Mobile Workplace lets small business employees access, share, edit and create content via their mobile devices. Content can be stored, shared and viewed from the cloud while documents can be created, edited and annotated.
"The use of mobile devices continues to be a key tool for SMBs as they look to manage and expand their operations," said Lou Delery, AT&T’s senior vice president of small business marketing. "Our new Mobile Workplace solution puts the work experience at the fingertips of employees regardless of where they are and allows small businesses to become more productive."
AT&T said users could access the service from virtually any mobile device, and that there was “automatic sync” to keep content up to date for companies across the various devices.
AT&T Mobile Workplace is available as a web-based platform supported by a desktop agent or mobile application. Business content can be viewed online or offline, enabling continued work even while in transit. The service can be self-installed and is backed by 24/7 U.S.-based remote, technical support from AT&T as needed.
On the low end, the basic service package starts at $6 per month. Businesses can pick from three different service levels; Basic, Enhanced and Premium, all with advanced mobility features such as SMS notifications, desktop sync and more. Each subscription includes cloud storage ranging from 25 GB to 100 GB.
