Text subscribers along with unlimited data, these plans allow users to enjoy rates of P5/minute calls to off-network numbers, and a lower P0.50/SMS rate to off-network numbers,? the company said. ?Other plans include a P300 plan with unlimited calls and SMS to SMART, and a P500 plan with unlimited calls and SMS to Smart and Sun,? the company said. The plans are ?perfect for workforces with high attrition rates,? Smart said, citing business process outsourcing (BPO) companies. ?Distributing cellphones to a [BPO] workforce and provisioning, maintaining, and supervising said devices and their plans is time-consuming on its own; to have to contend with large numbers of employees leaving (and having to reclaim and wipe their devices) as well as large numbers of new employees entering the workforce (and having to set them up with new devices) complicates the matter exponentially,? the PLDT-owned carrier said. Instead of provisioning a new device for every new employee, the BPO simply issues them a BYOD-plan SIM card, which they can use in their own devices. No matter when the employee leaves, the plan can be deactivated with minimal fuss and no extra charge. In recent years, workplaces have witnessed the rise of the BYOD trend. A company?s in-house BYOD policy governs how employees may use their personal devices in accessing corporate data and systems. It encourages company employees to work on the device they choose ? like accessing corporate email on their iPhone 5s or using a Google Nexus 7 to do the payroll on their online portal. The benefits to companies include increased productivity and employee satisfaction, since employees now use the devices they are most comfortable with. Also, they avoid the necessity or hassle of carrying multiple devices. ]]>
