SMART – BYOD Manages Employee Liable Wireless Devices

August 16, 2012


Austin, TX: For enterprise clients seeking to control the growing trend of “bring your own device” (BYOD), mindWireless is introducing SMART-BYOD. Integrating four key telecommunications management services, all with centralized reporting, SMART-BYOD was drawn from the Company’s proven wireless lifecycle best practices.

“mindWireless has provided wireless management best practice services for over 12 years, so adapting and integrating these four key processes to handle BYOD was a natural progression for us,” said Kevin Whitehurst, co-founder and managing director of mindWireless. “SMART-BYOD is already in place with several of our larger clients, allowing them to offer a wider set of telecom options to their employees as they maintain enterprise security and financial control.”

The four core processes of SMART-BYOD include:

  1. Inventory Management: Enrollment technology and processes create an inventory which integrates carrier data and HR feeds to confirm active employees and set approval routings for cost allocation, without the need for expense reports
  2. Financial Management: Streamline process and remove tax considerations by paying employees a stipend assigned by group/class/function, and integrating expense reporting data with the existing telecom management program
  3. Help Desk Management: Support BYOD end users through help desk and troubleshooting
  4. Security Management: Ensure data security by integrating mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM), and enterprise mobility management (EMM) applications within BYOD services

Industry analyst firm Aberdeen says BYOD usage is expected to rise by 48 percent in the coming year, and continue on that track. At that rate, an estimated 4 full time IT workers and $339,000 annually will be required to support 1,000 users in 2013.

mindWireless will introduce the benefits of SMART-BYOD in a webcast on Tuesday, August 28, 2012, at 11:30 am CST/ 12:30 pm EST. Register online.
