What will work best for your company? BYOD? Corporate-Liable? A hybrid option? According to Global Market Insights, the BYOD market will reach $366.95 billion by 2022. These insights come mid-pandemic, and it’s no wonder. Our company estimates that 30-40% of workers will continue to work remotely after the pandemic ends. As they do, more and more employees will be relying on their mobile devices for work. That certainly ties in with the 87% of companies depending on employees to have access to business apps on their phones for them to do their job.

Companies may opt for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Corporate-Liable/Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) program, or a hybrid of both. But which is best for your company? Let’s start by considering the pros and cons.

What are the Pros and Cons of BYOD and COPE?

As you can see, there are many pros and cons associated with a BYOD or Corporate-liable/COPE program. Your company may decide to have a hybrid of both for a variety of reasons. Corporate-liable devices offer better control and security to protect sensitive information relating to the business, customer and/or employee personal information.  Some companies prefer the hybrid approach, offering their employees the flexibility of choice. Whichever option, or options, your company decides to go with, you need a managed mobility services (MMS) provider. There are several options to choose from in the market, but our offering is unique in many ways. Our platform is one.
