Around a quarter of a million internet users in the United States only use their mobile devices to get online. The rate of mobile internet searches has quadrupled in the past year. A recent survey showed that around 75 percent of IT managers are in favor of a BYOD or bring your own device system. The increase in the use of mobile devices has also led to the development of mobile device management software.
Mobile device management software, or MDM software is used to manage, monitor and secure smartphones and other mobile devices. The use of smartphones for business makes it convenient to access documents and data from anywhere, as long as there is internet access. The flexibility and convenience of a BYOD company has been proven to lead to an increase in productivity.
