New "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) Service Bridges Gap Between Employee Privacy and Employer Mobile Device Management
BYOD Service Helps Organizations Manage Employee-Owned Smart Phones and Tablets and Ensures Compliance and Equitable Reimbursement for Business Use, While Retaining Privacy for Employees
WATERFORD, Wis., June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Runzheimer International®, the global leader in Total Employee Mobility® solutions, announces the availability of Mobile Device Services (MDS) for Personal Devices, a "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) service that lets employees use their personal smart phones and tablets at work while ensuring device compliance, fair and accurate reimbursement, and preservation of privacy.
Runzheimer MDS for Personal Devices is a fresh approach to BYOD programs that allows employees to use their personal device for work without the need for intrusive device control. It helps organizations to establish and enforce standards for mobile devices and provides accurate reimbursement for business usage during work times pre-determined by the employer. The service gives employees the freedom to choose a mobile device that meets their personal needs and a reimbursement that fairly reflects their business costs in exchange for a commitment to comply with their organization's policy.
"Runzheimer MDS features a win-win for organizations and employees. Employees agree to remain compliant with company standards in exchange for an accurate and fair reimbursement of their business expenses. They are assured that their privacy is respected because Runzheimer is acting as the intermediary," said Matt DeWolf, Director of New Product Development. "In addition, it lets the employer implement a mobile device strategy across BYOD devices, which is nearly impossible with traditional stipend programs, and this allows companies to use their BYOD fleet as a competitive advantage."
