Mobile Hotspots vs Personal Device Data Plan?

  • 1.  Mobile Hotspots vs Personal Device Data Plan?

    Posted Nov 02, 2018 12:18
    Hi everyone,

    Our org is researching how other organizations handle data needs for multiple people out in the field at the same time. One proposal was the purchase several prepaid devices and share them across the office - like a shared iPad with a data plan. The other proposal was to reimburse for employees for a percentage of their personal data plan usage or create a dollar cap for reimbursement every month?

    What have you seen and is there a system that is easier to manage?
