AOTMP, an information services company, has recognized the success of the Employee Owned Smartphone project of Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company (Nationwide) by naming the company the winner of the Mobility Management Project of the Year award. Winners in the category were assessed by an industry expert panel of judges who based their decisions on the overall impact the awardees made within their telecom environment.

According to Tim Colwell, senior vice president of Global Performance at AOTMP, this project is "a unique combination of well-developed corporate policies, internally developed applications and vendor integration, to accurately and efficiently manage a program that supports personal technology choices for a large mobile workforce."

Nationwide contracted Cass Information Systems, Inc (News - Alert)., provider of transportation, utility, and waste and telecom expense management services, to design a solution which would make it easy for the company’s associates to use their personal smartphones both professionally and personally over the Nationwide corporate network.

The number of Nationwide associates within the Corporate Owned BlackBerry (News - Alert) program in 2011were 6,000 and more out of which more than 2,500 have migrated to the Employee Owned Smartphone program which is based on the BYOD or "Bring Your Own Device" programs.

Nationwide also wanted a process which would allow it to reimburse its associates with ease. Through the Employee Owned Smartphone program, Cass makes pre-approved monthly electronic payments to the service provider directly for an employee's personal account usage. The electronic payment process compliments the voice and data service of the user if the services are employed for corporate use. Furthermore, associates have the freedom to pick and choose not only the smartphone of their choice but also a service provider of their choice.
