Corporate-owned personally enabled devices, or “COPE”, is a reemerging trend as enterprises continue to adapt to new ways of working. Where BYOD creates IT management and support complications, as well as security risk, the advantages of COPE programs include lower costs and lower risks.

Most IT professionals know the implementation of an expense management program can sometimes be difficult, especially with the number of people, processes, and software requirements involved. For most, they also dread the notion of starting from scratch when the current vendor doesn’t live up to their promises. However, it’s possible to have a successful migration. The key is to pick a provider that has historical knowledge, can identify the necessary steps, and get you to deployment with less headaches.
