Implement a BYOD Program Your Employees Can Understand

February 4, 2014 by Reid McDowell

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend is the biggest technology issue facing today’s workplaces. Today’s employees are simply more comfortable working on their own mobile devices. And, the trend isn’t going away. Employers can either embrace it or get left behind as their employees jump ship for companies that have BYOD programs in place.

November 7, 2013 by Hannah Scott

Gartner reported that by 2016, it will cost enterprises $300 to internally manage each BYOD line per employee. They also noted that it costs $100 per employee to manage BYOD lines.

Not only do companies need to consider any stipends they will offer, but they also need to think about security, MDMs, and support. Many companies end up switching back to corporate managed lines to save on hidden costs. BYOD isn’t the villain in this scenario. BYOD, when managed correctly, is actually a perfect fit for companies looking to save on device purchase cost, and…
