How BYOD is Helping to Promote Unified Communications Growth

Enter BYOD and, as a result, the growth of Mobile Unified Communications. BYOD in simple terms means “Bring Your Own Device”. What it really means is that many companies and enterprise-level organizations are now implementing policies that give employees the freedom to bring their own laptop, tablet, smartphone or other device with them and use it for both personal and professional tasks. While this has created some challenges for both businesses and employees (security of data being the most frequently cited), the overwhelming response has been positive. Employees have campaigned for the new policies so they can enjoy greater freedom and flexibility with the use of a single device.

BYOD proponents have reported on the benefits of being able to do their work wherever they go. But wherever their location, collaboration and communication between team members and various departments remains crucial for business success. Mobile Unified Communications like those offered by Inflow Communications are just the answer IT departments have been looking for.

Top applications used by mobile device and BYOD participants:

  1. Email
  2. Web browsing
  3. Contacts
  4. Calendars
  5. Instant messaging

By implementing BYOD policies that are supported with Mobile Unified Communications integration, all of these top applications are combined into a seamless user experience that offers full support for mobile workers via business phone, email, instant messaging, video conferencing and more. Unified Communications systems offer the tools mobile workers need to enhance productivity and improve communications.

No big surprise, then, that BYOD is helping to spur growth and speed adoption for Enterprise Unified Communications.
