Good Technology offers new enterprise split billing solutions to ease pain of BYOD


Anyone who noticed the California court case over employee reimbursement for BYOD devices will be no doubt aware of the risks of blind BYOD stipend and the struggles associated with telecoms expense management.

Enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider Good Technology has today announced new capabilities around enterprise split billing. Through its Mobile Analytics and Reporting service, the separation between business and personal usage is clearly marked ensuring no HR or tax issues, while Good’s Enterprise Suite with Data Service allows employers to select approved business applications, for which the data usage is automatically paid for by Good as opposed to being billed to the employee.

This is not the first time Good has pushed out a split billing solution; in January the company unveiled Good Work with Data, which enables enterprise IT to separate business and personal cellular data usage on the same device. Good aims to incorporate all policy types, be it BYOD or COPE, device platforms, apps, operators and data plans.

“One of the frequent concerns we hear is how to manage data costs while encouraging employees to use their personal devices at work,” said Good CEO Christy Wyatt in a statement. “Our new Enterprise Split Billing solution addresses that concern by reducing the need for reimbursement programs and providing a one-stop solution for BYOD or COPE,” she added.

The California court case in Cochran v Schwan’s Home Service Inc. saw a pivotal ruling whereby employers should reimburse its employees for a reasonable amount of mobile expense. At the time, EMM provider MobileIron said it showed how BYOD had “grown up.” However, it did not take into account the likes of SMS and data usage.

“Companies can streamline their mobility rollouts and mitigate potential legal and HR complications, while employees don’t have to worry about personal data usage or incursions on privacy,” added Wyatt. “It’s a win-win scenario.”
