New Mobile Devices for CYOD Policies Could Lower Costs and Increase Productivity

Wednesday, January 21, 2015.

Leading IT solution provider Fujitsu has responded to a growing trend of enterprises offering their workforce the opportunity to ‘choose their own device’ (CYOD), by extending its popular LIFEBOOK notebook and STYLISTIC tablet range.

The new mobile devices in this product range will feature the latest 5th generation Intel Core vPro processor family, in an attempt to make CYOD policies more flexible and suitable to a variety of business users.

Improvements which users will benefit from will include longer battery life and a higher performance in functionality and user experience, making workloads easier to manage and attend to from outside the office setting, plus a Trusted Platform Module specifically for enterprise concerns.

Selected new LIFEBOOK models will also be compatible with a standardised, universal docking station. The LIFEBOOK Family Port Replicator can now be used with eight different computing devices, including notebooks, Ultrabooks and two-in-one devices.

A standardised port replicator will allow enterprise employees to use the Fujitsu devices for convenient and fully-equipped desktop computing when in the office, and seamlessly transition into a mobile working environment at the flick of a switch.

This dual-functionality will provide businesses with a lowered total cost of ownership, as less expenditure will be required for computing hardware. In addition to this, the freedom and flexibility the devices offer employees will significantly raise productivity levels, giving a better chance of achieving ROI.

Marc Janssens, Executive Vice President of Platform Products and Retail at Fujitsu America, Inc. said, "Organisations today need to give their workforce more choice when it comes to business notebooks. At Fujitsu, we offer a wide range of notebooks and tablets to meet these diverse and varied user requirements. For example, this latest LIFEBOOK update gave us the chance to standardise docking stations, solving a small, but everyday frustration for our users. This is one of many examples of how Fujitsu truly listens to user feedback and designs its products with their experience in mind."
