Bring Even More of Your Own Devices With ShoreTel Mobility

We’ve come a long way since the DynaTAC 8000X cell phone brick ushered in a new era of communication, removing the sci-fi stigma behind the commercial availability of mobile devices.

Until recently, RIM ruled enterprise mobility – BlackBerry smartphones were used primarily to support the road warrior remote workers. But the emergence of new platforms and the prevailing prominence of app adoption has spurred the demand for BYOD acceptance. Who wants to carry around multiple devices when a single one can manage both personal and professional needs?

In an article discussing which platform will be the next king of enterprise mobility, CIO magazine postulates, “The big reason employees want Android devices, iPhones and particularly iPads is because they know they can do their jobs better with them. Smart CIOs will cut through the confusion and see the iPad for what it is: an opportunity to break out of the technical trappings that have isolated IT from the business side for decades.”

CIOs and IT departments are understandably still wary – they are caught between the security issues potentially presented with personal devices and the desire to save money and empower a more productive workforce.

And that is where ShoreTel Mobility comes into play. ShoreTel Mobility is the savior for CIOs. They can allow employees to bring their own device – integrate those into the enterprise and give their employees the full benefits of UC.

With support of the new smartphone operating systems we announced back in October, I’m pleased to announce the following devices are now fully compatible with ShoreTel Mobility.
