What is a BYOD solution?
A BYOD or a “bring your own device” solution is where an individual is able to bring in a device from home and connect it to the network of the workplace.
This has become popular in recent years along with the increase in the possession and use of personal devices such as smartphones and tablets.
The Effects On Your Employees
By incorporating BYOD into your workplace, it can improve the ways in which your employees work and their productivity and motivation levels. Enabling them to work from their own devices, allows them to be more flexible when it comes to where in the office they work. An example of this is that one individual may become more productive working from his tablet in an empty meeting room than he was sat at his desktop computer in his open plan office.
By enabling employees to work from anywhere using their personal devices would mean that productivity is increased, as colleagues can collaborate on projects from multiple locations at the same time.
By having work being completed on individual’s own devices and through the cloud, it would mean that less is spent on operating services that need to be regularly updated and this may decrease the pressure on the IT department within the company.
It may increase the attraction of new employees into the workforce because of the allowance of the use of personal devices for work gives the impression of a modern and forward thinking company.
If you are interested in setting up a BYOD solution, then here at EAC Network Solutions, we offer a number of services that can be tailored to your individual needs which fall under four elements: Network infrastructure, control and visibility, security and productivity.
