Tightly control company-owned or BYO devices while still giving access to the organizations applications and data.

Case Studies

“We found that the flexibility of Intune made it simple to assign security polices and deploy different versions of our apps to different departments and user groups. We publish our apps, and any updates, to our company portal. Employees can download the apps to their smartphones when and where it’s convenient."

Gurdeep Kundi, Foxtons


The benefits of employees accessing company information while mobile is undeniable. So too is the risk of insecure remote access. ActiveSync Remote Device Wipe has been adequate for many organizations, but as data beyond email is accessed, Microsoft has methods to solve the problem in layers.

Microsoft provides MDM solutions in Office 365 and/or Intune. With Office 365, the essentials are included with any E3 or E5 plan. Intune steps up the granularity of control and enables devices to be managed without actually enrolling them.

With Office 365 MDM, administrators can completely wipe a device (back to factory resets) OR, selectively wipe data and apps that have been published by the organization. With Intune, the latter may be done without even enrolling the device.

Below are the main differences between MDM for Office 365 and Microsoft Intune: 

1. Cost

For MDM for Office 365, the cost is included in Office 365 commercial subscriptions (Business, Enterprise, EDU and Government), while Microsoft Intune is a paid subscription

(single $6 per user per month or with the Enterprise Mobility Suite $7 to $12 per month). 

2. Device Management

MDM for Office 365 manages devices through the Office 365 admin center while Microsoft Intune manages devices through the Microsoft Intune Cloud console or the System Center Configuration Manager console. 

3. Supported devices

MDM for Office 365 supports IOS, Android, Windows Phone while Microsoft Intune supports IOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows. 

4. Capabilities

MDM for Office 365 is limited to the following: Conditional access, Device management, Selective wipe. Microsoft Intune includes all of the MDM for Office 365 capabilities, plus the following: Advanced mobile device management, Mobile application management, PC management.

Communications Market Acceleration



Why we won the award…

What technologies we provide users is an important decision, but perhaps the most important question of all is “will they use it?” Enabling’s “Lights, Camera, Adoption!” Organizational Change Management program provides customers with the tools required to successfully drive user acceptance and high adoption of new technologies. Enabling ensures that everyone in the organization is excited to use the new technology with fun and exciting pre-planned deployment plans. Operational Change Management made all the difference with one of Enabling’s local clients. Enabling just finished up working with this new client to deploy Lync Enterprise Voice at over 70 locations with more than 7,000 users. They were able to use the preplanned roll out plans from Enabling Technologies to insure a successful adoption.

Unified Communications Solutions. Instant Messaging / Presence / Conferencing / Voice



Why we won the award…

Our client, one of the nation’s leading architecture and engineering firms, wanted to improve customer relationship management. They required their project managers to take notes of customer phone calls in Dynamics’ CRM. However, their PMs only used CRM to log calls, and rarely kept it open and available. Getting to CRM’s call notes page took eight mouse clicks for each phone call, taking time and effort. Many times, the PMs were unwilling or unable to spend the extra time to comply with procedures. Enabling created ETC CRM Sync, which uses Lync APIs to automatically pop a screen to the customer’s CRM page, where the PM can immediate start taking notes. The integration significantly reduced the time and effort it normally takes to log the call notes in CRM. Not only did Enabling’s solution save their project managers time, but the company has much more accurate reporting and a complete call history for all their clients in CRM.

Unified Communications Solutions. Instant Messaging / Presence / Conferencing / Voice



Why we won the award…

Our client, a global provider of strategic outsourcing services, looked to Enabling for assistance rolling out Unified Communications to their organization. Depending on the time of year and the status of outsourcing contracts, user counts ranged between 7,000-14,000. They needed to replace their older Avaya PBXs and Voicemail systems. Enabling designed and implemented Lync, including Enterprise Voice, and Exchange Unified Messaging. In addition, Enabling used Lync’s APIs to connect to the client’s attendance/absentee tracking system. When an employee called in sick, Lync’s IVR took the call, prompted the caller to enter an employee ID and reason for absence, then inserted the information into the attendance application. Lync would then place an outcall to other potential substitutes and prompted them to ask if they’d be able to cover the shift. This saved FTEs from having to manually handle the process, and enabled quicker coverage for absenteeism. Lync not only proved to be a reliable voice system, but Enabling turned it into an extensible business enabler.
