If you are viewing this article on a tablet or smartphone, you may have Vox Mobile to thank.
The world is rapidly converting to digital technology, and most people access the digital world through mobile devices. That’s where Vox Mobile enters–accelerating the path to mobility innovation. Founded in 2006, Vox Mobile’s vision is to provide complete enterprise mobility management as a Service.
Vox Mobile serves a variety of clients, in many industries through its Enterprise Mobility Management service. From strategy planning, device procurement and provisioning, software support, BYOD (bring your own device) policies, server administration, help desk and everything between, the solutions ensure mobile application success and a superior user experience.
The result? Here are a few examples of recent successes:
- Vox Mobile-GEMA (the Global Enterprise Mobility Alliance), moved up from a Niche Player to a Challenger in Gartner’s October 2016 Magic Quadrant for Managed Mobility Services (MMS), Worldwide. In this report, Vox Mobile-GEMA is specifically recognized for its completeness of vision and ability to execute.
- With a Net Promoter score of +61, customers confirm Vox Mobile leads the market in application success and user experience.
In addition, Vox Mobile has been recognized as an Inc 1000 fastest growing company, a Weatherhead 100 winner and one of the Northcoast 99 greatest workplaces.
For current and prospective employees that is good news. Headquartered in Independence Ohio, Vox Mobile has a state-of-the-art facility. Its HQ is in the same office building as ours. As existing building tenants, we enjoy the upgrades made to the facilities when Vox Mobile moved in as the anchor tenant. To thank us for our ‘tolerance of the dust and noise’ during construction, Vox Mobile treated tenants to an afternoon of food, drink and entertainment. Welcome, neighbor!
Beyond the facilities, Vox Mobile has a dynamic culture that encourages hard work, inventive thinking, creative ideas, challenging the status-quo and lots of fun! In fact, Vox Mobile was recently named a Smart Culture award honoree. Jason Sulecki, Client Experience Manager says “I think Vox has a great corporate culture; they provide opportunities for advancement in addition to taking great care of their employees by planning fun and interactive events for all to enjoy.”
Vox Mobile also invests in its people. A quick perusal of its career site provides insight into life at Vox Mobile, featuring professional development opportunities, impactful work and recognition for accomplishments. This focus on its people combined with rapid growth creates opportunity for advancement. In 2016 alone, 25% of employees received a promotion!
Vox Mobile is led by Kris Snyder, CEO and Ernst & Young’s Technology Entrepreneur of the Year winner. Kris and his leadership team foster a climate of open communication, collaboration and creativity to ensure success on behalf of their clients.
Besides founding and leading Vox Mobile, Kris helped found GEMA, a global joint venture headquartered in Switzerland which acts as a delivery network for mobile managed services in 87 countries. And in 2013, he helped launch Mobile Thought Leaders (MTL), which today has more than 3,000 members in 10 countries, and a dedicated purpose of cultivating opportunities for its members to collaborate and share emerging best practices and technology advancements in mobility.
Kris is quick to acknowledge how important his team and employees are to Vox Mobile. “We are only successful due to the commitment and delivery that our employees provide. Our investment into our employees’ future is built through training and that is evident from our growth and promotion opportunities from within the company. “
Being in Northeast Ohio is also important to the history and future of Vox Mobile. Cleveland’s own Lebron James said, “In Northeast Ohio, nothing is given. Everything is earned. You work for what you have.” While paraphrased, the sentiment for Vox Mobile is very similar. “Success…It’s not one win, it’s not one event, it’s not a single destination. Just like Cleveland, no one expects Vox Mobile to win, especially when our competitors are giants like IBM, Vodafone, Tangoe, etc. How can we possibly compete with technology companies when we don’t live in Austin, Boston or Silicon Valley? The answer is quite simple, really. It’s the sheer grit in our Midwestern spirit that sustains our hunger for success. And it’s our collective desire to overcome the odds and provide a solution and service above all others, thereby bringing our clients vision of mobility to life.”
Let that be a rally cry for all of us who work and live in Greater Cleveland! Thank you, Kris and Vox Mobile for leading us into the digital future, and for providing a Workplace Paradise in NEO!
