Key benefits

Be ready for smart devices and BYOD

The business landscape has changed dramatically in the last two years and smart devices are leading the charge. The flexibility offered by these devices has the potential to make employees more productive and businesses more profitable.

That’s why forward-thinking businesses around the world are looking at how they can take advantage of the smart devices themselves, be it corporate-owned or personal provided through deploying Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies. The benefits of understanding these developments better include:

Anticipate and manage risks
It’s good for businesses that their employees are adopting the latest technology, but they need to be aware of the dangers. If employees use their own devices at work, the company’s IT team has little control over them and this presents a new range of potential risks to an organisation; including security and how to protect corporate data.

Plan how you’ll manage BYOD
BT’s Advise Devices Quick Start service can help you plan the implementation of BYOD across all areas of your organisation. Our expert consultants will assess your organisation’s readiness to introduce and manage smart devices and we'll talk you through all the steps to maximise the opportunities and minimise potential risks to your business.

Be prepared
We'll help you rapidly identify the steps needed to embrace the power of the devices, identify problems, outline recommendations and help you choose the right technology for your business over the long term.
