The way we communicate and work is changing as technology changes and grows. BYOD otherwise known as Bring Your Own Device is an increasingly popular trend that reflects these changes.
What is BYOD?
BYOD goes hand in hand with Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT), Bring Your Own PC (BYOPC) and Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) practices. BYOD offers workforces the opportunity of using their own devices, or devices they feel most comfortable with, for work.
Productivity Benefits of BYOD
Offering employees the chance to use their device of choice can lead to uplifts in productivity while lowering costs. Using a cloud-based VoIP system for example, will offer the advantage of working from any location, whether at home or in another office and from any device.
Introduce Cost Savings With BYOD
If employees prefer to take calls on their laptops, smartphone or on a deskphone in the office, with a VoIP phone system, these are all viable options. If employees choose to use their own devices, this can reduce hardware costs and maintenance costs, while enhancing employee satisfaction and morale.
BYOD Enhances Flexibility
BYOD also brings with it the chance to work with greater flexibility. Download the Yay.com app to make and take calls direct to your smartphone. With BYOD you can take your favourite device and business phone line with you wherever you go. If you’re travelling, on the way to your next meeting, or sitting at your desk, you can ensure that you never miss any important call. For moments when an innovative idea hits you, you can easily communicate with your team, making your business truly mobile.
With the 9-5 working day evolving to more adaptable hours as workforces change and become more global, the option to offer employees the chance to use different devices and schedule work according to their lifestyles can help your organisation appear more appealing. By embracing flexible working and BYOD you can focus on acquiring the best talent for your business no matter where they are based.
