As technology is ever changing, we know it’s often hard to keep up with it at times. Well this is certainly the case in many SME’s. Employees are becoming more interested in accessing corporate data on their own mobile devices. I’m sure many of you reading this have access to work emails on your smartphones whilst on the move. Well ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) is a scheme that encourages employees to access their emails and view txt files on their mobile devices. The aim is to increase productivity and reduce costs.
