What does BYOD mean for your business?

Thursday, June 07, 2012

As mobile devices become more powerful and common, a new trend is developing among SMBs, known as bring-your-own-device (BYOD). Employees are increasingly using their own phones, tablets and laptops to perform business tasks, according to a study carried out by Spiceworks. In fact, 75 percent of SMBs currently help manage employees' personal devices, because these devices have become an integral component of the employee's day-to-day business responsibilities.

One such benefit is the reduced strain on communal office equipment. Desk phones can be phased out or minimized, projectors and display monitors can serve more people. And - through the use of an online fax service - the dependence on the office fax machine can be lowered, or even eliminated in many cases.

By having employees install a free fax service app on their phone or tablet, they can remotely send and receive faxes - either through the fax itself or via email. The result? No more logjam at the communal fax machine!
