“BYOD is making significant remarks in the business world across the globe with about 75% of employees in higher growth markets such as India, Brazil and UAE and 44% in the developed markets using their own devices at work.” – CXOUnplugged.
BYOD has created various opportunities in the market and is making workplaces flexible than ever. Here is how BYOD will help you take your business to the next level.
- Enhanced productivity
When you allow all employees to use their own devices at the workplace, the comfort of working on a similar device increases the employees work efficiency. By making use of familiar technology and user interface the employees will not have to engage their time in understanding a new device.
- Reduced infrastructure cost
Many times for a company, major amount of capital goes into building IT infrastructure and maintaining it which can come from the cost by implementing BYOD. When a company implements BYOD, it automatically reduces its cost of procuring devices for each employee and instead can provide better connectivity services in the organization.
- Improved employee loyalty
When a company allows its employees to bring their own devices at work, ultimately gives them a sense of trust by the company on them. By giving the freedom to use a foreign device at work and giving them the access to company’s confidential data on their device, you generate loyalty among the employees, which makes them give the better result at their work.
- Ease of transit management of employees
The best part of having a Bring Your Own Device Policy is that you do not have to keep a check on the physical devices when any employee joins or leaves the company. Any sort of configuration to the company’s network can be done via the cloud. In case the employee is leaving the company, his device/devices can be simply removed from the company’s cloud network. No hassles with LAN wires required.
“A recent survey by the handset manufacturer Blackberry stated that 41% of Indian organizations have a BYOD policy.” – GadgetsNow
With such a huge percentage of Indian organizations implementing BYOD, the next question that needs to be answered is how to implement BYOD in a business. When implementing BYOD a company should also have a stringent policy to make sure the functioning is smooth. There should be no loopholes which can put the company’s confidentiality in danger.
