BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is a recent business trend in which employees are responsible for bringing their own smartphones and tablets to work, instead of the company supplying such tools. If you have heard of BOYD before, you have undoubtedly also heard about its many “benefits,” including cutting costs. However, according to Aberdeen Group, BYOD could cost your company an extra $170 per device per year when compared to an internal rollout. Yikes! But this isn’t meant to scare you away from mobile. On the contrary, if your business ever expects to grow and thrive, you need to embrace mobile.
“The growth of the mobile workforce has led to the need for workers to communicate regardless of their location or device,” said COMMfusion analyst Blair Pleasant.
