Overcoming roadblocks to managing your mobile devices (X-change)

Location:Roularta Conference Center, Zellik



Mobile devices tempt us with efficiency, flexibility and improved user experience. But when managing them within companies, we face many questions:

  • Can company data really be protected?
  • What are the tax and social security implications and options?
  • Is the BYOD story easy or complex?
  • And much more!


We are bringing you the real-life experiences of CSD and Imelda Hospital, along with subject-matter experts, to offer valuable insights for managing your park of mobile devices.


Please note that to guarantee an interactive discussion, we are keeping the number of attendees limited, so be sure to book your spot in time.

14:00 Introduction: Participants’ expectations around the table

Ann Guinée, Project Manager, Beltug (English)


14:15 Case: Centrale de Services à Domicile (CSD) Liège - How mobility management improves housing & health services quality for families and the elderly

Since 2012, CSD has followed a process improvement policy that includes providing staff with smartphones or tablets. This policy supports CSD’s goal to go 'paperless' and replace all documentation with a digital process - from time management to medical records and nursing files. Social dialogue and careful attention to staff expectations have been key to the project’s success.

Nicolas Piette, Directeur Opérationnel, Centrale de Services à Domicile Liège (French)

15:00 Full control, and secure data

As the mobile marketplace changes, and new technologies, devices and features are introduced, it’s a real challenge to stay ahead with future-proof solutions. How can companies maintain full control over who is using company mobile devices, how they are using them and the security of company data on the device? Concrete examples will give you insights on removing complexity from mobility management, so you can achieve the goal of getting devices into the hands of your staff faster, with fewer errors and less effort.

16:00 Don’t forget the tax and social security impact!

The tax and social security guidelines for mobile devices (laptops, smartphones and tablets) remain rather complex and unclear. Devices are rarely used for business purpose alone, which may have tax and social security consequences. As devices become incorporated in flexible benefit plans, plan design decisions may, again, impact taxes and social security.

For some time, Beltug has been requesting clarification and a regulatory/tax framework that will stimulate the adoption of mobile technology. While changes to legislation have been announced, nothing concrete is available yet. Find out the latest news on the tax and social security guidelines.

16:45 Case: Imelda Hospital - Bridging the gap between IT & end-user in mobility and BYOD

Mobility and B/CYOD are growing business needs. IT and Security departments typically address them with additional tools, processes - and complexity. To fulfill the demand for efficiency, the future workspace must embrace it all, for all types of devices: security, compliance, ease of management, ease of use, etc.  Learn about the real-life journey of Hospital Imelda Bonheiden into BYOD and mobile working.
