If you run a business with 25+ employees and your computers are over 4 years old, you are loosing productivity! and you know it when you hear things like this every day:
I had to reboot my system again
Your first thoughts circle around laziness, but deeply inside you know you are the one at fault; you need good computers for your employees and a 5+ year old pc is just not going to work; so, what can you do to improve your employees work environment without braking the bank?
As you know, replacing the entire computer fleet appears to be the only choice, specially when the market now offers high quality business workstations from the low $400's (like ieple's business computers) but if this option is still over budget, that question asked by your employee "Can I bring my own computer" may not be a bad idea at all.
Introducing iEple's BYOD equipment:
BYOD, according to Wikipedia, refers to the policy of permitting employees to bring personally owned mobile devices (laptops, tablets, and smart phones) to their workplace, and to use those devices to access privileged company information and applications.
But what about security of my data? you may ask.
Part of the success of this program, besides the immediate relief of minimizing costs, is the implementation of security; creating isolated, yet accessible virtual work spaces for employees to access their work tools and files through any device but keeping them from being able to copy company data back and forward to their own gadgets. Just like the image below but way less uncomfortable!
How do I get Started?
BYOD will work for any company that has or is willing to implement:
Hardware/Software alternatives and average costs:
In simple terms, A central computer will have a fully functional operating system that more than one user can access concurrently; all the processing power is provided by the central server so the employee devices become just an instrument to get into the system.
Once inside the system, all work is done within, No data leaks, no data exchange between the device and the office system. Even if the employee computer was infected, the enclosed work environment cannot suffer the effects of the threats.
What to do with the old computers?
You can order a recycling services provider to pick them up or they can be converted into thin-stations, a small safe piece of software gets installed on them so they can be used to access the powerful remote desktop server.
Which things won't work on BYOD
As you can see, BYOD is a great solution for your small and medium business; iEple can assist with your successful implementation, not only providing savings but actually increasing your profitability by regaining productivity and keeping your employees happier.
