Let AVR Manage your Business Mobile Devices

Your mobile devices – smartphones, tablets, laptops – add so much to your business, in fact you probably can’t do without them! Yet managing them efficiently can be a real resource headache. Mobile devices do so much; calls to clients colleagues and customers, surfing web sites, reading confidential data, accessing apps, ordering goods, sales presentations, product demonstrations and more.
