Now that BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) has become more common thanks to comprehensive enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions, employers are now having to deal with how they go about reimbursing employees for the work-related services they are using. A new webinar being hosted by BlackBerry takes a closer look at how BlackBerry's new WorkLife Solutions can help in those instances.
Since mobile service bills don't break out how data is used, a lot of employers are taking the easy path and giving employees a flat monthly fee that they estimate covers the work-related portion of their monthly bill. Other employers elect to pay the entire bill to avoid potential liability issues entirely.
The trouble is, by paying the whole bill or allocating the same reimbursement to every employee who uses their phone for work, employers are probably paying too much. BlackBerry's new WorkLife solutions were created to add precision to calculation of an employee's work-related mobile device costs.
- BlackBerry WorkLife – Advanced Analytics is a cloud service that gives enterprises visibility into the cellular data usage of work applications at a user, application and carrier level without infringing on users' personal privacy or content
- BlackBerry WorkLife – Reimbursement goes a step further by facilitating the reimbursement process for work-related data usage costs for approved business apps built with the Good Dynamics SDKv2.0 or higher on iOS and Android devices.
The hour-long webinar will take place on July 07, 2016 at 11:00 AM EDT and those interested can register now to attend. If you're unable to make it but have registered, the live webcast will be recorded and made available after the event.
