Employees experienced the freedom with these devices to collaborate and be more productive with than ever, using new products and solutions such as the ShoreTel Dock, and ShoreTel Mobility, with an Apple iPad, iPhone, or Android device.

Enterprises are recognizing this shift to the extent that by 2016, 38 percent of companies expect to stop providing devices to workers, according to a Gartner survey.

Along with this shift, the personalization of work took hold as employees easily moved between home and the office.
