BYOD: An Answer to Productivity


Is your job becoming more mobile? Are you having to move from one place to another for meetings, or do you find yourself often taking home work and seeing better results from it? Taking your work with you has never been as popular as it is now. In fact, some people can launch complete careers while being location independent.

Because it is only now growing in popularity as technology progresses, the convenience of being mobile can become quite inconvenient too.¬†If your work is on the go, you’d know the problem of having a company device alongside your personal devices. Carrying 2 or more devices is not just heavy, it can get confusing. Leaving your presentation in your office computer when you’re running off to an important meeting is also a problem that is common. There are many other problems that come with the separation of work and personal devices, because the truth is, work comprises of a majority of our lives. It is impossible to separate them completely. But the bottom line is that when you need answers and information, you can’t wait around until tomorrow.
