What is BYOM?

Bring your own device (BYOD) is a new workplace meeting trend that is almost self-explanatory: employees bring their own devices for workplace use. Studies show that 69% of employees already use their own devices at work.

Bring your own meeting takes BYOD to the next level, allowing meeting hosts and participants to use existing conference room devices (for example, the monitor or projector, the camera, the microphone, etc.) with their personal devices and connecting in-room participants with remote participants in hybrid workplaces.

While traditional video conference solutions are highly effective for remote meeting participants, new challenges arise within a hybrid space blending remote and in-person meeting participants which makes it challenging when the host and presenter is not equipped with the right tools.

BYOM eliminates those hurtles, creating the ideal environment for a frictionless in-person and hybrid meeting experience.

Benefits of BYOM

• Device familiarity — Familiarity with personal devices enables means fewer technology snafus and more productivity

• Flexibility in conference room set up and Cloud Video Conference platform — Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Cisco WebEx

• Ideal for hybrid work — Remote meeting participants can view content shared on room display
