One of the latest and most popular trends that's connected with updating ones business communication network so that it can now support VoIP technology includes Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). This trend means that both staff and employee's are allowed to bring their own mobile devices to work in order to use it for work related reasons. Although the high majority of business owners are currently embracing the ability for their workers to bring their own mobile devices with them to work, there are some businesses that still don't allow employees to bring their own personal devices to work.
The businesses that are embracing and thus utilizing BYOD are reporting that their employees like the fact that their ability to bring their own device to work, which is increasing their overall employee satisfaction, which in turn increases their overall productivity.
Even though thousands of business owners are embracing BYOD, it's important for those who want to resell cloud VoIP services to put an emphasis on addressing any BYOD issues that are currently in place in order to understand it in it’s entirety.
Issue #1: Confidentiality. Many businesses, especially those operating in fields like finances and health care, are concerned that when an employee uses their own device there's a higher potential to unwittingly share confidential information about the business. In this case, it's important to let these businesses know that there are firewalls and verification procedures that can be put into place to help protect the business's confidential information.
Issue #2: Management. Some business owners report that they're concerned that their employees will mismanage their time when working on their own personal mobile device. Because of this, they're looking for a way to keep an eye on their employees, and the way that they're using their device for working purposes. Some employees are reporting that they don't like the fact that they don't have as much freedom when away from the office because they're always connected to their personal mobile device.
