Daugherty Announces Expansion of Mobile Computing Services

Daugherty Business Solutions announces the launch of Daugherty Mobile Solutions Group. This business unit will consolidate mobile resources into one team with common goals and a sharp focus on improved service, capabilities and efficiencies. Market opportunity and growth potential affected the company’s strategic decision to create the new business unit, which is expected to be the fastest growing segment of the organization over the next five years.

More than 15 years ago, Daugherty began working on Anheuser-Busch’s mobile selling and route accounting system, which is now used by over 17,000 mobile workers across 400 locations.

“Mobile computing has seen an incredible evolution since we first became involved,” said Ron Daugherty, President and CEO of Daugherty Business Solutions. “Our mobile computing operation represents today’s most complete and dedicated resource available for managing the issues within the mobile landscape. We have a proven track record that provides organizations with the best option for sourcing hardware and implementation services which will drive mobile initiative adoption.”

Daugherty is a strategic partner with best-in-class mobile device vendors such as Honeywell, Motorola, Fujitsu, and Panasonic, but their vendor agnostic approach is somewhat unique in the marketplace.

“Our state-of-the-art configuration center has the capabilities to acquire, stage and deploy up to 500 mobile devices per week and currently supports over 35,000 devices,” explains Bill Richards, General Manager of Daugherty’s Mobile Computing Solutions Group. “I don’t know of another company that can match our depth and breadth of mobile device experience.”

Clients who purchase Daugherty’s customized mobile computing software solutions, will have access to a variety of mobile device options and will be able to purchase services a la carte—from strategy and consulting to hardware acquisition, staging, deployment and support from customized, secure e-commerce sites.

“We have found this kind of purchasing flexibility to be critically important to the procurement departments we have worked with throughout the years,” Richards said.
