Mobile Devices in The Workplace An Employer's DilemmaNot withstanding the lingering security and productivity worries born of BYOD, employers are showing a greater willingness to accept employee-owned devices in place of company-provided smartphones.

A recent study conducted by Fiberlink reveals that employers are actually more inclined to let employee-owned mobile phones access cloud-doc backup and a host of other online media storage and streaming platforms.

“Most of our customers are taking a hybrid approach. There is really no fully BYOD or fully corporate-owned shop. It’s somewhere in between for 95 percent of the people,” explains Neil Florio, vice president of marketing at Fiberlink, in a recent interview with FierceMobileIT.

Fiberlink published the following infographic to highlight the realities and corresponding dillemas born of mobile devices in the workplace.

    It is amazing how all of these mainline huge corporations are still not in front of the mobile marketing transition!
    They are not only leaving themselves behind their competitors but they are also leaving a lot of potential sales out there in limbo by not making the move to put mobile marketing as a priority in their advertising and communication with their customers.
    All of their mobile marketing should include optimizing their:
    1. website
    2. email
    3. advertising & communication with customers
    Those that don’t make this a priority right now will find that their business just may become a casualty to the economy in the next few months!
