Android is Ready for Work
“Hold on, let me check my work mobile phone, my personal phone, and my dual SIM card card for all the information that might affect my day.”
Android Business Enterprise Support is a real game changer for Android fans. Now you can bring your own device to the party, manage your work day, and schedule happy hour, all while safely keeping your personal bank account from prying eyes in InfoSec. Android for Work separates business apps from personal apps so you can use your favorite Android device for both work and play. You can finally use your favorite smartphone or tablet as a business tool as well.
Android is finally filling the void left by Blackberry for business enterprise support. The number one reason to maintain two cell phones is now gone with the release of Android 6.0. Android for Work gives businesses the opportunity to give employees a dedicated Work Profile with security, management, and application support built-in. Business Intelligence tools, including data visualizations and dashboards, can be accessed anytime, anywhere.
Some highlights of Android Business Enterprise Support capabilities include:
- The ability to control Data and Privacy
- Separate apps for work and play
- Work apps in the Google Play store
- Badges to identify business versus personal apps
Some of the best known workplace applications for Android now include Microsoft Office for Tablets, Microsoft Remote Desktop, Microsoft OneNote, Google Docs, Google Drive, Quickbooks, and Skype. The Microsoft Android apps, which include Word, PowerPoint and Excel, are a lot like the full desktop versions however they’re optimized for touch devices, with large, easy-to-tap buttons.
And of course this means we can all have the use of a front pocket again for car keys, instead of two phones.
