Limiting 'phone addiction' in the workplace

Tuesday, 4 September 2018

Tuesday, 4 September 2018

Both Google and Apple have announced new ways to monitor and control phone usage in their latest software releases for Android and iOS, but this relies on the individual users putting these in place. Whether you employ a 'Bring your Own Device' (BYOD) policy, or provide your staff with a company mobile, there is very little in the way of being able to control what these devices are doing, and what they are being used for. This can have an impact on the time cost, when staff members are using their phones during work hours, but also a financial implication should they start to go over their data usage.

The good news is our MDM 'Mobile Device Management' solution allows you to monitor and control your company phones - even to the point of controlling what apps they can and can't download.

In Monday's keynote address at Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference the company announced new features built into its soon-to-be-released iOS 12 operating system to tackle our growing addiction to phones and tablets. These include an enhanced "do not disturb" mode that hides your alerts during sleeping hours and “Screen Time”, which provides a report of your phone usage and allows for time limits to be set on the use of certain applications. Google has introduced similar measures for its Android phone operating system.
