Good Technology believes it has found a way to control data charges resulting from bring your own device (BYOD) deployment costs.
The Sunnyvale, California-based enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider on Thursday introduced its own BYOD solution with a corporate data plan to address the complexities of end users leveraging their own personal data plan to access business apps on their mobile devices. The solution is based on the company's Good secure mobile collaboration app, which was released in June.
While businesses have tried addressing these complexities before, primarily by providing stipends or having users expense back data usage, they've often hit additional administrative restraints, the company said.
"Data charges are critical in controlling enterprise BYOD deployment costs and, with this announcement, we are ushering in a new era with reduced corporate data stipends," Good Technology CEO Christy Wyatt said in a prepared statement.
Good Technology also announced the introduction of split billing across the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform, enabling organizations to aggregate billing for all Good apps. Now employers or partners can take the hit for employees accessing corporate apps instead of personal monthly plans.
"By integrating a corporate data plan and split billing into our new Good collaboration app and Good Dynamics platform, we are enabling the next wave of innovation for customers who are scaling their mobility efforts," she said.
