Enterprise Mobility

The Situation Today

While airlines have focused on delivering mobile enabled services to their customers, they have largely neglected to focus on enterprise-led mobility initiatives, which can drive cost savings, operational efficiencies, employee enablement, and deliver a transparent experience to customers, employees and partners.

The value that can be delivered by mobility to airlines companies is:

  • From a functional standpoint—opportunities in baggage management, flight operations, in-flight services, and more
  • From an enterprise perspective—standardization across technical platforms, security standards, and more
  • From a holistic point of view—critical areas where mobility can drive value

How HCL Can Help

HCL’s Enterprise Mobility Platform (EMP) is a business process driven platform for airlines that can help mobile enable all areas while ensuring standardization across the enterprise.

Through a consultative approach, HCL can develop and execute an enterprise-wide mobility strategy, which focuses on the needs of the business units across the enterprise, including customer experience, operational efficiency, employee engagement and partner connectivity.

HCL’s EMP adopts an integrated approach to balance, both the focus on the customer and the internal business units, while at the same time ensuring that the solutions, which have a low total cost of ownership, are stable and secure. In addition, it leverages the power of mobility to improve efficiency; increase employee productivity and engagement, while reducing cost, and increasing revenue.

HCL’s Enterprise Mobility Platform provides:

  • Increased visibility into existing processes
  • Real-time information on resources, fleets, delivery of shipments, etc.,
  • Exception and workflow alerts for taking effective and immediate business decisions/directions

What Customers Say

"HCL has built a solid reputation of providing industry-leading IT application and infrastructure services. Given their commitment to the transportation and logistics industry, willingness to invest in our success, and unwavering commitment to excellence, HCL was the right choice"
- Senior Vice President and CIO, a leading 3PL company

“I know we asked the HCL team to do this extra work which was not part of any official project or SOW and you just got it done for us.. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this kind of gesture.. you could have pushed back and said ‘we are too busy with other things’ or got into a cost discussion (which would not have been unreasonable as it is extra work) but you did not, and also made several revisions at my request,  to ensure the new menu views are perfect..  so hat’s off to you for accommodating this, in the midst of trying to keep to all the other deadlines.. Its all hugely appreciated and simply once more, reconfirms why HCL is such a great team to work with.. HCL just continues to surpass customer expectations.. the work they are doing right now is phenomenal”
