2 lines are better than 1 when it comes to BYOD, says Movius
As the BYOD movement has gained momentum, a debate has developed around cost allocations, compliance and how employers should compensate workers for voice and data consumed on personal mobile devices for work-related purposes.
To address these issues, more and more vendors are jumping on board the split-billing ship – possibly due to the California court ruling from 2014 that required California companies to reimburse employees for voice charges incurred on personal devices for work purposes.
One split-billing solution comes in the form of two separate identities – complete with two phone numbers – on a single, personally owned device. With this solution, an IT administrator could distinguish between the work-related and personal costs associated with an employee’s personal mobile device, and budget out the funds accordingly.
