Corporations must take steps to enforce their policies both to mitigate their risk and protect their employees from the human tendency to misuse these devices while driving
Dallas, TX (Vocus) November 18, 2010
MobileLutions announced today the availability of MobiLoc(TM) on Android devices. MobiLoc(TM) is a technology addressing the growing need of corporations to minimize risk in their mobile workforce by controlling employees’ ability to use smartphones while driving — including in cars, trucks, trains, and buses.
Since MobiLoc(TM) is a software-based solution; the Android release is available on all devices and carriers. This release is the continuation of development by MobileLutions to protect companies from misuse of smartphone technologies by their employees. With Mobiloc(TM) the implementation requires no hardware, just login to the portal, establish your policies and deploy.
With the increasing use of smartphones, (up 96% in the last year, with Android accounting for 25.5% of all worldwide smartphones, according to Gartner), corporate liability is continuing to grow at an alarming rate. “Corporations must take steps to enforce their policies both to mitigate their risk and protect their employees from the human tendency to misuse these devices while driving”, says Co-Founder, Doug Ortega. A strong defense for employers to protect against liability is to adopt and implement written policies that ban the use of mobile devices for work-related purposes while driving — and to ensure that these policies are adequately communicated to employees. MobiLoc(TM) provides a powerful way to ensure that mobile employees actually comply with corporate policies.
MobileLutions Co-Founder, Larry Eppard says: “the Android devices provide the flexibility and openness allowing technologists to effectively monitor and block applications that are inappropriate while driving.” With MobiLoc(TM) applications can be added to the configuration dynamically and users are not limited to specific programs for texting, emailing, and other applications.
