      Android Work Profiles Enable Productivity

      At one point, many companies provided each employee with a smartphone to benefit their ability to do work remotely. As technology advances, however, convenience and usability does as well. The burden of carrying two separate phones is not appealing to most users.

      In 2011, Pew Research Center surveyed U.S. adults to estimate how many adults owned a smartphone. Their research concluded that 35% of Americans owned one. Fast forward eight years later, and it is now estimated that 81% of U.S. adults own a smartphone of some kind.

      Another survey concluded that 70% of employees keep their phones “within eye contact” at work. So why do only 59% of businesses allow their employees to use their smartphones for work purposes? There’s both pushback from the employee who doesn’t want to give up their liberties on their own device, and pushback from business owners who don’t want to risk data theft.

      Separating Personal Data from Work Data

      Some businesses simply do not understand--or have not deployed--the resources to enable work profiles. Android’s work profiles allow users to securely separate their own personal data from work data. These profiles not only store data in separate storage areas, but do not allow applications to simultaneously run which might compromise data security. Data is truly separated, and cannot be intertwined.

      While using work profiles is secure, some employees are hesitant to create a profile. Employee pushback is the main reason employees do not participate in BYOD programs. Most employees are not bothered if Mark Zuckerberg has access to the entirety of their contacts, browsing history, camera and microphone, and even photos; but, if their own personal boss has the same authorizations, some employees will not partake in any sort of BYOD.

      Setting up Work Profiles

      While skepticism is unavoidable in some employees, setting up work profiles still greatly benefits your business. Setting employees up with their own device can improve productivity, and security. Most work profiles are set up through Google Mobile Management for Android. There are few requirements in order to set up work profiles. Your device must use Android 5.1 or newer software, and users must have whitelisted apps in the managed Play store. Once these requirements are met, users are able to navigate to:

      Click on the Settings app go to Management > Devices > Search and select devices and then open a work profile installation wizard from Managed Google Play. Once there click on Create managed Google account/work profile. Click Create to confirm.

      If you have any questions on how to set up work profiles, or how it will benefit your business, reach out to our IT professionals at Techworks Consulting by calling 631-285-1527.

      The Other Features of VoIP Fuel Business Communications

      Find Me/Follow Me Call Routing

      Most telephone platforms have a call forwarding service, but the find me/follow me call routing feature allows for additional customization to this service. You are able to set what phones you want to ring, in what order, at what time. This routing service ensures that you get all the important calls wherever you are, keeping you mobile, and not tethered to a specific phone when you’re expecting a call.

      Voicemail to Email Transcription

      VoIP has features that make tough situations better. One useful service is to have your voicemail transcribed to text and sent to your email address. This allows you to read your voicemail messages when you are unable to talk on the phone, ensuring you get the messages promptly. 

      Auto Attendant

      With a built-in auto attendant, VoIP provides thorough and fast call mapping, ensuring your callers can access the right caller without knowing the extension.

      Conference Calling

      Most phone systems offer some semblance of conference calling, but with VoIP, it features managed invitation, interaction, and muting controls to have more control over your audio conferencing solutions. 

      Do Not Disturb

      Need to buckle down and get some work done? The do not disturb setting will put everything to your voicemail without ringing any of the phones on your queue.

      If you would like to hear about more features, and information on how VoIP can benefit your business, talk to our experts at Techworks Consulting by calling 631-285-1527 today.

      How to Make Chromecast Your Employee of the Month

      Setting Up a Chromecast

      To set up your Chromecast, you’ll naturally need the device itself, along with a few other things:

      • A television with an HDMI input port
      • An open USB port or power outlet
      • A device with either the Chrome browser or Google Home application installed
      • Wi-Fi access

      Once you have all of the items on this list, you can set up your Chromecast. Plug it into a power source and the television’s HDMI port, and install an application. At this point, the Chromecast will lead you through the rest of the process.

      Using Chromecast to Mirror Your Phone 

      Let’s assume that your Chromecast will be set up in a conference room. If you have something pulled up on your Android device to share with the room, you can cast it to the display (assuming that Android OS 4.4.2 is installed, but since the OS is currently on version 9, this is a pretty safe bet).

      To do so, you have to connect your Android device to the Wi-Fi that the Chromecast is connected to. Once that’s been done, open up your Android’s navigation drawer and press the “Cast Screen” button. Your Chromecast should be an option for you to cast your screen to. Once you’re finished, you can stop casting by repeating the process, just selecting Disconnect instead.

      Broadcast Google Slides

      Casting a slideshow only makes sense. After all, the point is to share information with a group. Chromecast and Google Slides allow you to cast your presentation. To do so, make sure that - again - both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi signal. Once you access your slideshow and click the “Present” button, a drop-down menu will appear - including “Chromecast.” Once you select this, your presentation will be visible on the Chromecast-connected displays.

      Casting Chrome Pages

      Casting a page from the Chrome browser is very easy to accomplish, as there is a simple integration that provides this ability. The Chrome browser features a button in the toolbar that allows you to cast the page to a device that you select. There is another means of doing so, via the menu - conveniently located near the casting button. Under that menu, select the Cast… option, and your active page will be cast onto your device - a process sometimes called “casting a tab.”

      Activating Guest Mode

      There will likely be visitors to your office for meetings and such, visitors who may need to use your Chromecast device to present their own information. If you want to avoid giving out your Wi-Fi password to anyone looking to use their Chromecast, try using Guest Mode.

      Using the Google Home app on your smartphone, you can control an outside Chromecast by clicking on the three-dot menu at the top-right of the application, activate Guest Mode, and then anyone can use the Chromecast in the room like normal. 

      Performing a Factory Reset 

      Like any other piece of tech, a situation might come about where you need to reset your device. Here is how you do it:

      The first way you can do this is, of course, manually, by pressing and holding the Chromecast button until the LED turns orange and then to white. Once it’s white, let it go, and your Chromecast will reboot. Another method is to go into your Google Home app and select the Chromecast from the menu, select More and select Factory Reset Chromecast.

      Chromecast is just one of many devices that is marketed to individuals, but can be used for your business. For more great tips about consumer tech and much, much more, call us today at 631-285-1527.
