BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) takes immense interest in making work easy for users, and seeks to provide them with services and solutions unmatched by other providers. It often happens that an employee has to use his or her official smart devices for personal purposes and they are supposed to reimburse the cost incurred in making call and also for the data charges incurred. This is as per the recent ruling in California.
Problem arises, when the data allocations from the company are used by the employees for personal usage and hence the cost of reimbursements goes up substantially.
Movirtu technology to provide solutions
BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) has provided a solution to this problem, which will help keep separate personal voice, data and messaging charges on personal devices from business ones. Movirtu, a SIM developer, is the latest acquisition of the company. A single device can support multiple numbers activated on it with the help of the technology developed by Movirtu. This will make it possible to have two separate BlackBerry accounts for business and personal usage. This technology is bound to benefit the small businesses substantially by conserving the valuable data allocations.
Also, it will also help save the valuable time and resources of the company that go in keeping a check on how the company-owned device is being used.
BlackBerry help save time, cost
A single device can be used for operating under two different accounts if a company successfully creates virtual identities on smart devices. In a post, on the Inside BlackBerry, Movirtu CEO Carsten Brinkschulte explains “Enterprise customers will now be able to provision a single device for corporate and personal use; allow discrete enterprise policies to be applied to only the work side of the device, while allowing full usability of the personal portion of the device; split bills for voice, data and messaging; and provide the ability to switch between profiles easily.”
The misuse of the company’s data allocation for personal usage has given birth to the BYOD – ‘Bring Your Own Device’ movement, where the employees are required to use their own technology. The above technology is an easier way to keep the personal and company usage separate in comparison with BYOD.
