Visage, a SaaS enterprise mobility management company, has released Visage MXP to automate the task of managing employee mobility expenses. As part of Visage’s integration with Concur, a travel and expense management provider, enterprises can now access and leverage detailed data to centrally manage their employee paid mobility program – also known as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).
The shift from corporate paid mobility programs (where the company selects and pays for the devices and plans) to employee paid (where employees get reimbursed for all or part of their mobility expense) has been well documented. According to research from Cisco, 89% of IT departments enable BYOD in some form.
“Mobility has been accepted as the new reality. Businesses need a way to manage the influx of personal devices and control the costs associated with moving from a less than 15% of the workforce being mobile to over 75% of the workforce using a combination of corporate and personal-owned devices,” said Maribel Lopez, principal analyst at Lopez Research. “Those firms that can embrace BYOD and support the solutions to manage it effectively will drive competitive advantage by accelerating business processes.”
With Visage MXP, organizations can reimburse employee mobility expenses while getting complete visibility into all company mobility spend – regardless of whether it is employee paid or company paid. The integrated solution is available today for companies that have both the Concur Expense and Visage MobilityCentral SaaS platforms. The two providers are co-marketing the solution.
