The crowd’s going wild! It’s the beginning of March and the beginning of every basketball fan’s favorite¬†month! March Madness is here and sweeping the country with nail-biting games, hope, and the thrill of the sport.

The madness of March isn’t just limited to the courts, though. Many of us can’t go to the games, so we find our information through other mediums. There has been a shift from television to mobile searching and it’s never been more apparent.

According to Business 2 Community, 88% of people use their mobile device to access March Madness information while 69% use their mobile phones while watching the game. 26% of people use their mobile device as their primary source to watch the big game, while 48% use their mobile device to check scores.

Considering the scale of March Madness, those are impressive numbers.

It just goes to show how vital mobility is in our every day life. Stretching from our personal lives into our professional ones, mobile devices are creating a new accessibility in the office that’s never been seen before.

Your office can make the most of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) by sticking to these core concepts.

Clear the Court

When you begin making your BYOD plan, have clear and specific best practices. Ensure that you know what is applicable, realistic, and permitted to avoid future challenges and confusion. Mobile devices can be as helpful, as they can be distracting. Avoid further complications with a full-proof plan.

Don’t forget an exit strategy as well. Your employees may not always be around. You must be prepared in the event of a professional change so their device can be saved while the applications and programs are erased. Help your employees throughout the exit process with a clear and concise strategy.

Be a Team Player

Make sure your employees know their service plan, boundaries, and restrictions. Their device is not a personal device, it’s a professional one. Answer questions and limit confusion about grey areas such as the level of support they will receive, applications allowed and installed, Help Desk and ticketing problems, and any other questions that may arise.

Your employees should know what applications and security measures they should implement to protect their data and information. Clearly state that wiping the phone will erase information, in the unfortunate case of a stolen or missing device. This includes your employees personal information on the devices. Discuss the pros and cons of various ideas and the implications of personal information on the device and how to back up their information.
