Under the influence of the pandemic, more and more companies are now adopting remote working and hybrid working modes. What can business owners do to keep their companies on track and even improve their performance under this working pattern? Implementing a BYOD policy inside the enterprise is a good solution. Under the BYOD policy, business owners encourage employees to use their personal laptops, tablets, phones or other devices to work in order to better switch between multiple scenarios.
What is BYOD?
BYOD, or Bring Your Own Device, is a policy adopted by organizations to enable employees to use the devices they know best, or that work best for them. This will help to improve their productivity and efficiency. Employers believe that BYOD and collaboration trends are colliding to pave the way for professional video conferencing solutions that allow employees to collaborate with colleagues on their own devices - anytime, anywhere.
What are the benefits of BYOD?
1. Provide flexibility and mobility for work. Employees can bring their own devices between different workplaces to maintain the work continuity.
2. Reduce the company's operating expenses. By allowing employees to use their personal devices at work, the company can save the cost by not purchasing devices for each employee.
3. Improve the work efficiency. Employees are definitely more familiar with their own devices and office equipment than with the ones configured by the company. That will bring comfort for employees and make them more devoted when working. Thus, their work efficiency is accelerated at the same time.
BYOD and Video conferencing
In remote working and hybrid working mode, people frequently use video conferencing to eliminate the impact of physical distance on instant communication. So how do you choose the applicable video conferencing device under BYOD policy?
In the BYOD mode, personal devices (commonly laptops) are the key for employees to maintain work continuity between different places. Video conferencing devices that use USB connection are well suited for this scenario. Come to a place suitable for video conferencing, turn on your own laptop, quickly connect the device via an easy plug & play USB connection and start the remote communication right away.
Also, all-in-one devices are better suited to the BYOD mode because they are highly integrated and simple to deploy. Imagine how bad an experience it would be when employees enter the conference room with their own laptops and need to connect the camera, microphone, and amplifier to the computer separately, before they can start the video conference after separate debugging.
Based on this, we can conclude that a USB all-in-one video conferencing device would be an excellent choice for deploying video conferencing systems under BYOD policies.
Nexvoo offers video conferencing devices for different meeting spaces that are compatible with BYOD mode, such as N109 and N149 for small meeting rooms, N110 for medium-sized meeting rooms, and N120U for large meeting rooms. They are all-in-one video conferencing devices, all connected via USB, and are plug-and-play. When you need to do video conferencing, just connect the device to the USB port of your laptop, launch the conference software and start the conference easily.
Build the right BYOD meeting room
Implementing BYOD has more benefits despite the challenges it can present. By having a clear BYOD policy and choosing the right devices, companies can reap the benefits of BYOD. A BYOD work model can help employees become more devoted and productive in their work.
