Business mobile travel is becoming more prominent; “…the Enterprise Mobility Exchange predicts that by 2015, 1.3 billion workers or 37 percent of the global workforce will be considered mobile,” (Porter-Rockwell, 2014). Due to the change in how and where they work, corporate travelers are increasingly more reliant on mobile devices for use in accessing the most current business and travel information. This shift is causing a change for businesses, who must find a balance between facilitating conveniences for their travelers and maintaining executive financial control.
Mobile Policy Example 1:
If a company owned device must travel with you internationally, you are required to notify your manager for approval at least two weeks prior to departure. Notification should include:
Dates of travel (start and end)
Each international destination
This will ensure the most cost effective plans/features can be added to the mobile number. The Company will approve costs for additional international plans/features and usage based on the end user’s position and length of travel.
