Solving the BYOD challenge

Solving the BYOD challenge

Access Anywhere. Anytime.

The ‘Bring Your Own Device’ approach is building momentum and gaining popularity from employers and employees alike. Companies and facility mangers from the resource sector have been adapting BYOD capabilities for their workforce for many reasons.

It makes sense though, doesn’t it? The way we consume information, entertainment and stay connected is now dominated by the mobile device and we’ve all got them. So, then the question is why do we need separate devices for work?

Benefits of BYOD

Employees are familiar with their own devices and the BYOD strategy has merits to increasing productivity and efficiencies for both the company and the employee. It’s claimed to heighten morale and for individuals, who don’t want the hassle of changing to new unfamiliar devices to do their job, it’s seen as a perk.

So, what’s the risk?

Don’t lose the personal touch

Whilst there are numerous benefits to BYOD companies and facility managers can lose the personal touch and the importance of engaging and involving workers with company information and notices. This no longer needs to be the case.

Our latest innovation allows you to communicate tailored site information to your or your client’s workforce with the Swift app. Our app provides you with a company branded virtual compendium.
