This trend, called BYOD can pay off for your business, adding as many as 460 productivity hours a year for each mobile employee. But, first you have to address BYOD security and management challenges. Ignoring BYOD is not a viable option.
Create new opportunities with BYOD
With the right plan and policies, you can create a positive user experience, boost both employee and IT productivity and protect your intellectual capital:
BYOD has the potential for big cost savings because organizations that let employees bring their own devices to work don't waste money on corporate phones. Plus, when an employee can work from and use a device of his own choosing, it's more enjoyable than being forced to use a corporate-issued device. That means happier and more productive users. Another another advantag is that it supports a mobile and cloud-focused IT strategy. From their personal mobile devices, employees can access their work in the cloud, further improving productivity.
