MobileIron is an excellent management tool for my staffs' mobile devices, and has been extremely useful for us at Needham Bank in terms of fully adopting and benefiting from BYOD. I especially appreciate that it integrates with Accellion—this is one less headache for me in terms of IT management.

My employees are usually on the go, managing many moving parts and types of paperwork throughout the day. So it's important that they can securely access corporate content on any mobile device. kiteworks is a lifesaver for our team. Its mobile-friendly and intuitive interface allows my employees to put important items at the forefront of their workflow.

With Nest, I'm my own Mother Nature, having full control over the temperature at my home. I work long hours so having a comfortable house when I get home is important to me. The app provides me with a way to manage my room temperature from my iPhone no matter where I am. The Nest Thermostat even learns my schedule so that it will program itself to remember my behaviors and preferences—talk about convenience.

Needham Bank App
As the first vice president of information technology, there’s no way I could live without my Needham Bank app to manage my personal finances. Mobile banking is the essence of convenience these days. I manage my finances and mortgages all from my iPhone, whether I’m in the line at the store or sitting at my desk.

One of my favorite apps, CamScanner, allows me to use my iPhone as a scanner for intelligent document management. The editing tools, such as the ability to add notes and make annotations as well as smart enhancing, are great because they make my content easily readable. It’s intuitive to use and since I always have my iPhone on me, I'm never at a loss with CamScanner.
