What Cell Phone Spyware Can Do For Your Business
Here are two big things cell phone spy software can do for your business:
Lots of companies are installing spyware, software designed to track activity, on a cell phone or mobile device, onto their employees’ company-supplied cell phones, and there are many reasons they may be doing this. But what exactly can this kind of software do for a business?
Monitoring employee cell phone activity is considered a way to do two key things increase security, and improve productivity. These are the outcomes most businesses point to as driving the adoption of cell phone spy software like Autoforward.
It improves productivity
For many companies, this is the big one. There is a perception, right or wrong that employees who are more connected are also more likely to be distracted. We’ve all seen employees who make it an art form to waste their time on things that don’t benefit their employer. This can mean anything from gossiping by the watercooler, to running a basketball pool in March, to playing video poker at their desk instead of working on that report.
The unfortunate, though maybe not inaccurate, perception with smartphones is that their ability to access the internet from an unsecured location (when compared to using the company’s data network) and the proliferation of distracting apps, make them a perfect forum for employees to waste time with little thought that the company is monitoring them.
Installing a phone spy app on these employees’ mobile devices does two things. It tells them that the company cares and that the company is watching, acting as a deterrent to inappropriate use of company mobile devices… and… it acts as a means to track when employees misuse their company-supplied mobile devices, so corrective action can be taken.
It increases security
Your employees carry a wealth of information on your company with them every time they leave the office. And unlike the past, when all that information was stored in their own memories or on papers they took with them, an employee carrying a smartphone has a connection into your most sensitive information with them.
They take it with them everywhere they go and use it all the time for things as mundane as checking the time, finding and address, or calculating a tip. And with phones being used every few minutes, how easy must it be to misplace a smartphone? They can fall out of pockets and purses, and they can be left in restaurants or taxi cabs. And with an up-to-date smartphone or tablet retailing for several hundred dollars each, these devices are also attractive targets for theft.
A cell phone spy software package like Autoforward can both help find a lost cell phone using its GPS tracking capability and can shut down the protected phone from a remote control panel app. That way, anyone who happens to find your phone or even steals it, can be prevented from gaining access to your sensitive information
Another security aspect with mobile devices is that they can be crushed, dropped or otherwise damaged fairly easily, rendering the information stored on them inaccessible. By logging every file sent to or from a company smartphone, a cell phone spyware package creates an online backup of important files. If a device gets destroyed, all these important files can simply be retrieved and restored. Now any business can go to Autoforward today and download, install and monitor today.
