As the demand for tablets on enterprise wireless networks continues to accelerate, businesses are being faced with increasing pressure to allow BYOD (bring your own device) on their secure wireless network. Many companies have already embraced BYOD on their enterprise wireless network. If you haven’t already implemented a BYOD program, you need to check out these7 benefits you could be missing out on.
#1. Increased worker satisfaction
Rather than being stuck with IT issued devices, employees are a lot happier using the mobile devices they already prefer and love.
#2. Up-to-date devices
Technology is constantly changing, so it can be almost impossible and costly to keep up with the latest mobile device trends. Since BYOD devices are usually more updated and cutting-edge than the IT issued devices, the company gets to reap the benefits of the most modern features, capabilities, and upgrades
#3. Saves money $$
With a BYOD program on an enterprise wireless network, businesses can transfer operating costs to the user. Companies can save a lot of money with the worker paying for the majority or all of the costs for the mobile devices, services, and other associated expenses.
#4. Enhances productivity
By allowing workers the opportunity to use a device they are used to and more comfortable with, they can respond to requests faster, and are more comfortable working in their desired environment, thus leading to a significant increase in employee productivity.
#5. Less stress on IT
With BYOD, employees are more responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the devices they personally own, so it lessens the strain on the IT staff and they can actually spend more time focusing on more important issues than just help desk tickets.
#6. Attracts the best applicants
Offering a BYOD on your enterprise wireless network can help to attract top performing applicants, who seek to work flexibly and often work on-the-go.
#7. Increases engagement in the workplace and after hours
Employees are more likely to work outside of the office and their responsiveness is increased when employees have the means to communicate outside of the office. This means they are more available outside of the office to answer emails and complete other tasks.
