An IT asset recovery solution is essential for every organization with a mobile workforce, equipping their employees with corporate-owned IT assets.
Every organization has different mobile device program needs and may hear a variety of technical terms used to describe an IT asset recovery solution.
Complicated industry jargon can stand in the way of gaining buy-in from fellow leaders and implementing a solution necessary to the security of an organization’s mobile workforce.
To succeed in IT asset recovery, you’ll need to know more about the terms often used when discussing IT asset recovery:
