History[edit]

Amtel was founded in 2003 by Pankaj Gupta and Richa Gupta with the aim of addressing challenges organizations face in managing mobile devices and telecommunications expenses. The company developed and marketed an integrated software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution for telecom and mobile life cycle management.[7]

The company’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution for iOS (iPhone, iPad), Android (Smartphones, Tablets), Blackberry & Windows devices was launched in 2010. With this program, Amtel combined mobile device security management with mobile apps management into a telecom information management system (TIMS) platform.

In 2014, the company launched a secure mobile communicator targeted to enterprise field services.

The three components of the system - [mobile device management], mobile telecom expense management, and [secure communicator] - could be set up separately or managed together from a single Web based console.[1][3][4][7]
