“We believe Gartner inclusion of Sakon as a Visionary provider in its Magic Quadrant for Global MMS validates our platform strategy,” said Amine Doukkali, Chief Operating Officer of Sakon. “Every enterprise today is wrestling with a workplace impacted by Covid19, growing volumes of disparate data, and the increasingly rapid rate of technological change. Our solution was designed to accommodate such unpredictable forces and purpose-built to orchestrate the entire enterprise mobility lifecycle.

In that spirit, we continue to increase our workflows and integrations to automate employee onboarding and policy management, asset and inventory management, and financial management and optimization of the mobile estate.
