Rolling Out a New COPE Program for Your Employees

By Billy Howes on Sep 3, 2021

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. The key factor is that the approach also empowers employees to use these company owned devices for personal activities including social sites, e-mail, and calls, inevitably passing savings along to the employee, as well.

The Advantages of COPE: How Your Enterprise Can Save in a Corporate-Owned Program

By Billy Howes on Jul 16, 2021

With all the industry buzz around BYO programs for businesses, it can be hard to know which to choose. With more employees working remotely than ever before, BYO is not going away any time soon, and seems to be growing more in popularity by the day. One device program that is gaining more adopters is what is called COPE, or Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled. As a hybrid between BYOD and Corporate owned device programs, COPE allows employees to use company owned devices for personal activities including social sites, e-mail, and calls while mitigating risks and lowering costs for the employer.  This is a win-win for everyone, especially the company because of the hard and soft savings benefits of the program. The company lowers the cost of IT, licensing, security, maintenance, and even the cost of the plans and phones themselves.

The Deployments, Strategies and Benefits of "Bring Your Own"

By Billy Howes on Jul 1, 2021

BYOD is being used more and more for businesses in both terminology and practice.

But what exactly is BYOD, and what does it mean for companies? BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device, and it allows employees to do work on their own devices to access a company’s network and data rather than rely on the company to provide the hardware. Upwork estimates that 1 in 4 Americans will be working remotely thru 2021 which further supports the popularity of BYOD. Millennials are also driving the trend, thinking their personal devices are more effective and easier to use than devices provided by their employers.

Many people preferred to use their company-provided smartphone rather than their home phone to keep in touch with everyone.
