30 Most Valuable Companies to Watch 2020
Developing a powerful strategy for enterprise mobile services can be very complicated. There are many threats that hinder an organization’s ability to leverage new mobile technology and to mitigate risks. To overcome the complications of deploying a relevant mobile strategy for an organization, partnering with an expert is very important. We introduce you to Stratix Corporation.
Stratix opened its doors in 1983, long before anyone envisioned a world driven by mobility. The company’s roots are founded in mobile as supply chain consultants with a vision to help businesses capitalize on technology to streamline their operations and increase productivity. As mobile technology advanced, it became the largest reseller of purpose-built mobile devices. The frequent release of innovative mobile technology and tools fueled its growth. The company continually adapted its business model to ensure we could always meet and exceed the mobility needs of its clients. Along the way it created key partnerships, expanded its capabilities, and added high-value enterprise managed mobility services.
Today, Stratix is the largest U.S. pure-play managed mobile service provider, a trusted, long-term advisor for leading Fortune 500 brands – many of whom have been with us since the beginning. For over 35 years, we’ve built that trust by delivering consistency – staying ahead of the market, evolving its services and pushing the limits to exceed expectations.
