Reduce Mobile Device Expense

With the increased use of mobile devices to streamline and improve productivity and accessibility, I recommend agencies pool minutes wherever possible to implement a “friend & family plan” so to speak. This will reduce and/or eliminate costs associated by using FREE network-to-network minutes, eliminating the risk of overage fees and the need for large plan packages because available minutes will be shared.

Permit the use of IPADs to mobile workers.

Creat a secured version of the IPAD (or similar device) for employees that are mobile on their jobs. Facilities crews, Food Service workers, Doctors, Nurses, Landscapers, Architects, and Psychologists are just a few jobs that could utilize this technology.

Shared use/shared cost cell phones

Currently many employees use a government owned cell phone in the performance of their jobs. As these devices are for work use only these same employees also have personal cell phone. Nobody really needs to, or want to, carry around two devices at all times. What I propose is to combine these devices under a share-cost billing structure. The government pays for a portion of the bill and the employee pays the rest.... more »
