Embrace BYOD and BYOM in your company

New generations of millennials are entering the workplace and their expectations are driven by their digital lifestyle (online gaming, Google docs, social media…), especially when it comes to choosing technology solutions. Ease-of-use and accessibility are their main requirements for technology, and they are not only the ones using the tools, they also manage them. BYOD and BYOM have since long been common practice in businesses.

With remote and flexible working on the rise, it is also paramount that devices and tech used by your employees are fully secure, easy accessible and fully compatible with your existing IT infrastructure. Still the use of personal devices, apps and tools often clash with the requirements of a business. Deciding and implementing technology solutions in an enterprise is the responsibility of an IT department. The challenge for an IT-manager is to find those tools that fit within the budget, but that also give employees that same intuitive experience and that speed up business outcomes. Preferably one–fits-all solutions that don’t disrupt the employee experience.

What does this mean for your collaborative tools?

Setting up a meeting or conf call today is not as straightforward as it might seem. It’s trouble, it’s calling IT and fighting with tech that is not as intuitive as it should be. The meeting room collaboration tools are often too complex and room-centric. Unlike, person-centric tools that are more closely integrated into the employee’s digital workflow than any of set-ups in enterprises today.The success of your future meeting room strategy and the choice of your collaborative tools depends a great deal on putting the user at the center of the workflow. Only then will you be able to make effective use of your meeting room real estate, free your enterprise from clutter and useless interventions in meeting rooms and actually gain time.
