BYOD trend helps workers with productivity

Bring your own device or "BYOD" has become a common trend in the service sector as it quickly helps electricians and heating, ventilation and air conditioning personnel receive work orders. Rather than drive into headquarters every morning for work orders, these employees can gain access to company software on their own devices.

According to an article in Forbes, BYOD technology has been around for quite some time and is here to stay. In a corporate space, employees can also bring their own computers, smartphones or tablets for work-related tasks. These gadgets are not provided by the employer, and instead workers spend their own resources for cross-functional tools.

In fact, BYOD has taken off internationally. In Brazil, 75 percent of all workers bring personal devices to work and 44 percent of staff do the same in Russia.

Imagine this: A graphic designer at a company has her own workstation with a PC computer. However, she is accustomed to completing her work on a Mac and wants the flexibility to bring her own device into the office.

While employees have their own workstations with computers, ergonomic chairs and filing cabinets, they may want to integrate some of their own technology for a more efficient day. In these setups, workers' own devices can access company information, software and various internal applications. Staff members enjoy flexibility as they can access work documents on the go, while employers benefit from constant connectivity and increased productivity.
