Mobile Automations namesake product distributes software to laptops and handheld devices including Palm and Pocket PCs, while also collecting inventory information. Version 3.7 supplies trouble-shooting via remote control.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Like other products in this category, Mobile Automation is pricey. However, the tools ability to aid help desk staff in finding most distribution or inventory problems will help cost.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Costs of tracking and maintaining devices will decrease the longer Mobile Automation is in use.

Detailed inventory and reports; nimble remote control; basic ability to track Palm and Pocket PCs.

No agents for handhelds means little data is collected; high price.
