Today we’re back with another post on how to do BYOD the right way. Last time we weighed up the pros and cons of bring your own device. So now you know what to expect from BYOD, let’s talk about setup.
There’s more to BYOD than the devices your staff bring to work. A successful bring your own policy can enhance your whole business. With a number of tech solutions available to empower your team’s BYOD results.
So let’s take a look at some of the options available to and the rewards you can expect from each.
The pure BYOD policy
This is what you probably expect when you think BYOD. Your employees come in with their own devices and you save on the tech bill. Which is great. And if that’s all you need then you don’t have to worry about any additional setup.
The only trouble is your pure BYOD policy isn’t very flexible. It’s not all that powerful either. You’re limited to the devices your staff bring to work and the office hours to use them. This is fine for simple tasks. But it doesn’t take full advantage of the BYOD benefits.
The hybrid BYOD policy
The hybrid BYOD policy combines employee devices with company systems. Systems to enhance your BYOD network and create a more flexible policy. This can include a video conference system for contact between devices in any location. Or data conferencing for collaboration anytime, anywhere.
A hybrid policy lets your team connect in an instant, using their own devices. Which means your BYOD setup isn’t restricted by the office hours or walls. Your staff can bring and take their own device as they please. Always connected; always ready to get results.
The advanced BYOD policy
An advanced setup gives you complete control over your BYOD network – by combining a flexible policy with powerful in-house systems. From custom apps and software to remote staff, an advanced BYOD policy brings all the benefits of bring your own to your business.
With cloud-hosted software your BYOD network goes global. You can connect with remote staff, train multiple teams and collaborate in real time – from anywhere in the world. You can use video recording and streaming to create a visual database, for staff to access whenever they need. Giving staff access to training videos, tutorials and any other resources from their own device.
A step beyond BYOD
An advanced BYOD setup isn’t just for employees. In-house solutions like video and data conferencing connects your team to a more powerful network. But they also connect your business to wider opportunities. As well as staff you can reach new clients, partners and investors – either on their devices or in-house systems.
The same advantages are there. How you choose to use them is another story. Instead of training, you can pitch ideas or share presentations. Or create a digital meeting room for collaboration with execs on your next big move. With an advanced BYOD setup you have the most flexible system in place to bring more benefits to your business.
