Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is one of the exciting aspects of the IT Accessories Project. We’re exploring the option for staff to access their LBB email, calendars, and contacts from their own personal phones or tablets.
The overall aim of the Accessories Project is to give you more choice around the devices you utilise to do your job in the most effective and flexible way.
There is currently a pilot in place to see how this might work – the practical advantages and limitations, the realities around Data Protection & Security, how much staff like it and want to use it, and the costs involved.
There are currently 20 people piloting the functionality on Android devices, and 20 on Apple devices. They are giving us valuable feedback on the installation & configuration of the functionality, as well as how easy it is to use, and how helpful it is. They’re also helping flush out issues and highlight risks, as this is the very beginning of much further testing required before there is a solution to roll out to wider users.
