The rise of the bring your own device (BYOD) movement—which allows employees to bring personally owned devices to work and use those devices for business pursuits—is certainly among us. However, a crucial element of the success of the BYOD trend rests in a company being able to ensure that their confidential data and network will remain fully secure at all times. That’s where unified communications comes in, as it allows users to leverage the gadget of their choice while still adhering to corporate regulations.

With BYOD being adopted at a rapid pace by firms, Momentum has been focusing on further developing its virtual voice solution and introducing more products that support mobility, including Momentum Messenger. The unified messaging platform is a cloud-based communications solution, ideal for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) turning to BYOD in particular.

Powered via the cloud, Momentum Messenger can extend the capabilities currently being used on tablets and smartphones alike including fax, visual voicemail, instant messaging and audio/visual conferencing, In fact, employees can access the above solutions from anywhere and at anytime, while companies can rest assured they will remain protected since Momentum is responsible for the complete monitoring and backup of the system. It is a win-win scenario for everyone involved.

Director of Product Development at Momentum, Brandon Hagood explains: “BYOD and UC solutions bring freedom and flexibility to the way people work. Adopting an activity-based solution that allows employees to receive calls and messages from anywhere, and on a multitude of platforms, results in quicker response times and ultimately helps improve customer satisfaction.
