Bring Your Own DeviceSee how the BYOD trend could benefit your business
The BYOD trend, which stands for Bring Your Own Device, has continued to grow as more employees prefer using a single device to manage both work and personal information. The desire to use personal communications devices at work has increased as the market for smart phones and tablets have expanded. So why not stay ahead of this trend by using VOIPE’s softphone app, allowing staff to work from their own tablets or smartphones.
The tablet market, alone, is projected to outpace desktop computers, selling 60% more than PCs through 2015. 22% of enterprises are adopting these devices into their businesses, whereas 34% of SMBs are purchasing tablets for employees. Why are these becoming the device of choice? Simply put, cloud applications are making it easier for employees to access all of their data directly from their smart phones or tablets. This is true of web-based business phone systems, as well.
