Managing "Smart" Technology

When your business starts looking into smartphones and other mobile devices to help keep up with the pace, you may start to have some concerns about how to manage them. The good news is that there are a few programs available to help you do just that. Whether you worry about how your employees use their mobile devices, or you worry about them being lost or stolen, you can find the right application to help you have more peace of mind. The producers of the In View series hosted by Larry King (561-279-3550) will show business professionals across the country some of the programs that can help them manage smartphone usage. In View Larry King producer teams identify noteworthy stories relating to companies throughout the economy across the United States and Canada.

Usage can be a major concern with all of the games and other distractions available for smartphones and tablets, but with the right monitoring system you can see which applications your employees have downloaded and even uninstall the ones that you don’t want them to have. You can also monitor which apps are good for your business purposes and share them between all your employees at once instead of mandating that they find and install them when they find the time. In fact, with a good monitoring system you can have your employees design new applications and share them company-wide without having to put them on an app market first. The In View series (855-446-8439) will look at how companies keep employees on task and keep them from misusing their mobile computing devices.

Security can be another major concern when it comes to using mobile devices as some will have sensitive information saved on them and all of them will represent money spent by your company. With a monitoring system, you can lock certain information or even erase it if you need to. You can track your mobile devices if they are lost or stolen and help the authorities better recover your items. You can even do all of this from your own mobile device or from your computer.

A lot of times, the business world is all about staying with or ahead of the competition and the latest technological advances and innovations can help you do just that. With all of the different options for smartphones, tablets, and computers that are available to help boost your business, finding the right monitoring application can help you have fewer worries and increased productivity.


  1. Technology changes so fast these days that it hard to know what works best. I’d like to see the In View series look into the different kinds of business technology out there and objectively review it.

  2. My business has used company-issued smartphones to control and monitor data usage by my employees. It’d be interesting to see the In View series do something about the best smartphone apps for small businesses.

  3. I’d like to find a way to make my employees get all apps approved by management. That would be very helpful. Then, they would not be able to download games that waste time. Hopefully the In View series will present something like that.

  4. I think this is an important issue. Companies can block or limit internet access on their networked computers to keep employees on task, but controlling their smartphone use poses new challenges. The In View series could help business owners by informing us about programs for controlling smartphone usage.
