Many companies have successfully incorporated BYOD policies into their business plans, and the number is rising. A recent survey showed that the percentage of BYOD-friendly enterprises rose from 72 to 76 percent between 2011 and 2012, while the percentage without a BYOD plan dropped from 9 to 5 percent.
New SMART Enterprise plans are specifically designed for fully enabled BYOD policies. Unlike other SIM-only plans, which often feature 12-month lockout periods and yet no significant cost savings over plans with subsidized devices, the SMART BYOD plans feature maximum freedom and flexibility.
SMART BYOD plans have no lock-in period and no pre-termination fees; users can terminate their contracts at any time they like. They also offer one of the most affordable unlimited calls/SMS/data plans on the Philippine market. Even the most basic plans come with valuable inclusions. They range from a basic 200 PHP plan with unlimited calling within a calling circle and unlimited SMS to other SMART numbers, up to a 1000 PHP plan with unlimited calls and texts to SMART, SUN, and Talk n’ Text subscribers along with unlimited data. Other plans include a 300 PHP plan with unlimited calls and SMS to SMART, and a 500 PHP plan with unlimited calls and SMS to SMART and Sun. On all plans, you can also enjoy rates of P5/minute calls to off-network numbers, and a lower P0.50/SMS rate to off-network numbers.
These kinds of plans, designed as they are for easy BYOD implementation, are perfect for workforces with high attrition rates. Take the case of a BPO employer. BPO employees are famous for high turnover. Distributing cellphones to your workforce and provisioning, maintaining, and supervising said devices and their plans is time-consuming on its own; to have to contend with large numbers of employees leaving (and having to reclaim and wipe their devices) as well as large numbers of new employees entering the workforce (and having to set them up with new devices) complicates the matter exponentially.
SMART’s BYOD plans present a simple solution to such a conundrum. Instead of provisioning a new device for every new employee, the BPO simply issues them a BYOD-plan SIM card, which they can use in their own devices. No matter when the employee leaves, the plan can be deactivated with minimal fuss and no extra charge.
SMART Enterprise’s contribution to the rising BYOD trend is a welcome addition to the options available to the modern enterprise IT department, and a way for both employees and employers to enjoy a simpler, more personalized workplace experience.
