Believe it or not, there are organizations that still require employees to carry a separate cell phone for business activity.
While carrying an extra phone around can be a hassle, there’s a company that’s come to the rescue.
Mobile smartphone company Hypori has launched its virtual smartphone, vPhone, this week. Through this new phone system, employees can combine their work and personal phones into one device rather than having multiple units to keep track of.
By incorporating the vPhone directly into Apple or Android smartphones, people gain access to a wider array of security options. All work apps and data for the vPhone are stored in the cloud to ensure that if a device is ever lost or stolen, the data is secure.
Hypori CEO David Hood commented on the need for this type of corporate smartphone in today’s tech-savvy society. He said, “Today’s business users love their personal phones, and anyone who’s had to carry a second phone for work knows how annoying it is. At the same time, companies know they need to maximize productivity, but balance that with respect for users’ privacy and security of corporate data. The vPhone presents the best of both worlds.”
Through the elimination of the second phone for business, this may lead to the transformation of organizational efficiencies.
