BYOD is a critical new trend for businesses to consider, as mobility sweeps professional expectations as both a benefit and way to optimize productivity. As companies look to support BYOD and a broad selection of potential uses for personal devices, the need to optimize business process management will also arise. To this end, more firms should consider the value of mobile BPM software to enable BYOD.

The main advantage of support mobility trends with BPM solutions is the advanced management and control over internal application development. Mobility efforts hinge on employees having the proper applications to do their jobs on a variety of mobile platforms, and BPM software helps expedite the development and support of those apps. Furthermore, it will enable increased customization of the user experience, allowing workers to use their chosen devices rather than being limited to those supported by less versatile apps.

According to TabTimes, one of the biggest obstacles to BYOD adoption is a lack of clear communication between IT and other employees regarding the policies and strategies in place for BYOD support. By improving the foundation of mobile workflow, firms will be able to eliminate this problem and deliver the support needed to truly harness the benefits of mobile device integration in the workplace.
