Good Technology has announced new Enterprise Split Billing solutions to alleviate the need for blind BYOD stipend or reimbursement programmes. Good Enterprise Suite with Data Service and Good Mobile Analytics and Reporting help companies remove friction from bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and corporate-owned-personally-enabled (COPE) rollouts. These solutions enable organisations to accelerate enterprise mobility by reducing liability, controlling expenses and diminishing complexity.
For companies with BYOD programs, there is little visibility today to separate data requirements for business versus personal applications on an employee phone. Stipend programs, put in place to reimburse estimated business cost for personal device use, add considerable administrative burden, and introduce potential tax and compliance issues. For COPE programs, visibility into data usage is also of interest since today most organisations simply pick up the tab without knowing what amount is actually being used for business or personal purposes. The two new solutions from Good Technology will eliminate both uncertainties and simplify mobile BYOD and COPE rollouts with potentially significant corporate cost savings.
“One of the frequent concerns we hear is how to manage data costs while encouraging employees to use their personal devices at work,” said Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO of Good Technology. “Our new Enterprise Split Billing solution addresses that concern by reducing the need for reimbursement programs and providing a one-stop solution for BYOD or COPE. Companies can streamline their mobility rollouts and mitigate potential legal and HR complications, while employees don’t have to worry about personal data usage or incursions on privacy. It’s a win-win scenario.”
