Cloud Computing ConceptBring Your Own Device (BYOD) is all the rage for enterprise-call businesses, but did you know that SMEs can put their staff’s devices to work for their business too?

1. Hosted Desktop Access
People love to use their own devices, often preferring them over company issued hardware. Why not leverage that understanding and provide access to a company-controlled and maintained hosted desktop solution?

Using their own laptop or tablet, employees can connect to a remote desktop session which is configured to your specification. In this way the employee gets to use their own device of choice whilst your company benefits from securing data and access rights centrally.

2. Hosted VoIP
Smartphones have reached critical mass in the UK, now making up the majority of mobile phones in the UK. As a result many of your staff may already own and use a smartphone. This too can be put to use within your company.

By using a suitable VoIP app installed on their smartphone, employees can gain access to your company’s hosted VoIP solution, and make and receive company calls from anywhere using their own phone. If your staff are willing, you could even do away with dedicated VoIP handsets on desks altogether and use their smartphones on a full time basis.
