5 Ways Varnion BYOD Solutions Will Help IT Performance

 

The consumerization of BYOD has been shifted the IT culture so that the users are the ones getting the latest information, cutting edge technologies first, and they want to bring those devices to work. Nowadays traveller also consume this trend, which is not something new in the hospitality industry. A hotel guest can bring 2-3 or more devices.  IT management team that wasn’t handling the connected devices, has to change the mindset to aware that traffic usage from all the devices may create problems.

 

BYOD History

BYOD was mentioned for the first time in 2005 by Ubicomp. In 2009 BYOD entered the courtesy of Intel. Moreover, in 2011 IT service providers started to share their perceptions of this emergent trend.

Especially when we entered the post PC era, Steve Jobs once said, “We don’t think the PC is dying at all. We don’t think that the PC is moving from the center at all. We think it’s evolving just like it has since it was invented in 1975-76.” As the result, new generation and smarter PC is invented and produce post PC era products, such as smart phone, tablet, and notebook.

 

BYOD & WiFi FACTS

90% of BYOD activites are comprised of email, calendar, shopping, banking & social – Forbes.

38% of those say no WiFi is a deal breaker will book elsewhere – Hotel Chatter.

94% of people cite WiFi as the most important amenity – Hotel Chatter.

 

BYOD in Hospitality Industry

Imagine when a big meeting with 2000 participants that being held at the hotel where you work in? When all the participant brought their gadgets to maximize the meeting absorbance, here were averagely two gadgets for each person. (I.e. mobile phone, tablet, laptop). For rough calculation there were around 4000 devices that being used. Of course they will accessing the networking that you have. What could be worse than?

What would happen if the office network is not separated with guest network? It will increase complain from the guest hotel in long term impact, will decreases customer satisfaction and ruin the hotel reputation.

The new technology brought some new option like TV cable, CCTV, printer even absency system, all are connecting by office network. The latest, BYOD term is being a new trend that dynamically changing.

 

Network is like a house, if you don’t know what devices are passing through your network, it’s such a shameful. 

 

BYOD Problem

1. The devices that connect to the network are uncontrollable.

2. Data usage is exploded without control.

3. High risk of security breach or data stolen.

4. Virus and malware and Trojan threatening even more.

5. Device loss: Data theft, there with BYOD, when a device lost or stolen, corporate emails & business data is lost too.

 

MDM or Mobile Device Management is needed to control the mobile devices and bandwidth, network segmentation, and device management.

 

Varnion BYOD solution fixes the device management from those threats above:

 

1. Simplify Network Access & Segmentation Management

Control the mobile devices that can access the  network. You can even restricting network access to managed mobile devices from office inventory network, not only that you can also manage how far and much network can access.

Easily setting the network segmentation. I.e. hardware like printer can be chose whether has to connect to the internet or not. Laptop and computer get into the right network, for office or public.

 

2. Analyze Network Activity

See how many BYOD clients have been connected, measure the bandwidth they’ve used, and even see their percentage of total traffic.

 

3. Device Tracker.

In case, there are mobile devices that lost or stolen, you can trace of the location of the lost or stolen devices.

 

4. Perform Remote Lock & Wipe.

For instance, the Marketing Manager is in a meeting out of town, but suddenly there is a problem with the laptop, the IT administrator can fix this problem by accessing the laptop from the office.

Not only that, the IT administrator can also be able to remote wiped the lost devices or locked to save the data. It will saves all company’s confidential data.

 

5. Secure Apps and Data.

Integrated network access control prevents unmanaged devices from spreading viruses on the network. Moreover, these are some mandatory application and software for inventory devices. To make it easier in long term, avoiding double work at the same time, our BYOD system programs an auto install and update.

 

Over all, IT administrator has many problems to be fixed on site and other work that need a quick solution. With a limited time and place, don’t you think you need a system that provides secure, reliable, headache-free BYOD network –100% integrated, without adding cost complexity?

Facebook Login: Build Your Mobile Marketing through Social Media

The growth of mobile users are crazily fast. As the consequence of this phenomenon, the demand of internet connection availability also getting higher. Not only availability that matters, the speed and the stability from the connection also become a bold point. Wi-Fi connection is no more a prideful and exclusive facility, but a mandatory for every hospitality business. No wonder we can find it almost everywhere we go, even in a shuttle bus. It defines the credibility offers for consumers.

The more people online the more responsive and critical they are. Shown by a large reviews number on websites about service or quality of a place. TripAdvisor for instance, has rating for the internet connection on every hotel, restaurant, café reviews. It is absolutely a big risk and could affect the business growth.

Even just about the complementary facility such as internet in the hotel, restaurant, café or even aircraft, could be a big matter. Once bad review goes viral then more people avoid to go there or use their service. Especially people these days keep the gadget lingers even on holiday. No matter what they do, they barely put the phone down, no exception where they are. Admitted that even Wi-Fi in restaurant has a big impact of the customer numbers.

Using a good internet service provider is the only option to solve this issue. In this competition of course you have to choose the best partner (ISP), reasonable bandwidth, good service, and other plus points. Undeniable good quality ISP will cost pretty high, make sure to check is it worth the value.

Our latest invention, Facebook Login doesn’t cost you more or free. It simply cut the marketing budget with greater impact. How it works then?

With Facebook Login everyone that about using Wi-Fi has to login with their Facebook account, there will be posted that this person connected to Wi-Fi at this place. Their friends will see it, also attracts the attention from them. Imagine if there are many people one by one, share the location where they use the Wi-Fi, it will make other curious. It has the same effect like word of mouth.

Morning Varnion

 

 

HEADLINE MORNING VARNION

 

Did you know about Morning Varnion?

What makes you excited to come to the office? For most people who have been stuck in routine, having high motivation to work is not easy. Work life is totally different from college life. No more rules that we can disobey for fun, nor lectures to miss. No more game, just work. However, work life could be an interesting adventure if we can see it from different side. To compete with progressive innovation, we are required to be creative and always learning. One said, there is no limitation for people who wants to learn.

Amazingly shocking, self improvement seminars are cost very high. Just because the speakers are popular. Do we have to spent hundreds of dollars just to be able to learn this? Do only several people that deserve to get free seminars from the company? The answer is only one in Varnion, which is a NO. Always willing to learn is one of Varnion’s Corporate Culture. That is why Varnion has annual event: Morning Varnion.

 

Morning Varnion Pak Alex

 

What is more beneficial than a relax time with colleagues, pampered with tasty food and refreshing beverage, along with a future investment for freaking free. Yes, you are absolutely allowed to be jealous! As a growing creative technology company, Varnion is acredited as a WOW! Dedicating the greatest service to the clients, also share enormous love and care inside as a team and family, no exception.

What kind of event is Morning Varnion? We can call it a gathering, longer coffee time, a study group meeting, a sharing knowledge, discussions room, anything! You name it. The topic is always change every month, and the speakers also varies from internal. Uniquely, even the topic seems “heavy” and serious, the speakers are deliver it in easy way.

Not so many companies are agreed to shed some penny regularly for this kind of event, it may seem a waste of money and time, or even not important. On the contrary, there are also companies that believe an informal education like self-improvement for the employees is such a long term investment to give a greater result along with the improvement from the workers. So does happen to the employees, there are people who think this event won’t change a thing, while an open minded employees would think the other way around.

Currently we are living in the information age where mind, information and high technology are imperatives, it’s requires us to updated. It would be a good point to other companies to adopt this type of activity with some adaptation based on the needs of the company itself. It’s effective to create deeper effect on core values.

Thus, Varnioso have the rights to be grateful and proud. The only thing we need is only an open mind, so we could take ourselves to a new stage of life.

“Honestly, if Varnioso realize, Morning Varnion is a forum to sharing knowledge where we can receive more information and discuss about it in fun way. Very beneficial for ourselves, especially when we apply the knowledge into actions.” Mr. Leonardus Handy Gunawan as Vice President of Operational and Sales adds.

Yes indeed, the memories flashing by when all Varnioso gathered with dresscode, had an interactive discussion also strengthen the teamwork. It went more than crazy. (KT) Continue reading…

Agent of Change

How many times you whine about your job in a day? The boss is too blunt. The colleagues are judgemental. The works are piled up. Then tiring days go on and on and on. But is it really about that?

We often seek for a perfect job that we are dreaming of every single time since we were in school. The easy job that pays a lot with good looking colleagues, amazing clients, and very flexible time. If only those kind of jobs were exist, unfortunately they are not. Your current job can be a perfect job for you if only you want to  make it as one with your own effort. As simple as it said, love what you do.

Yes, it does require a change. And trust us, we do exactly know to make a change is a hard thing to do. Isn’t that what makes it worth it? In Varnion it self, Varnioso are demanded and supported to keep dynamic life and keep changing to be better, as in VCC number five “Becoming Agent of Change”. Everybody has their own point for a change and definition for Agent of change. Curious with what Varnioso thinks? Here’s the report.  😀 (KT)
