CORPORATE LIABLE, BYOD, CYOD, CLEO, COPE DEFINED While this paper focuses on BYOD, it is worth pointing out that many employers are taking a different approach. With Corporate Liable devices, the employer is responsible, or liable, for the bills. Even with the rising popularity of BYOD, instead of abandoning corporate liable programs, many employers are strengthening them. For example, adding a call-tagging feature enables employees to identify personal and corporate calls. This information can be used for employee payroll deductions and reimbursement. Call tagging is also critical for Value Add Taxes (VAT). In countries that have VAT taxes, firms need to show that personal use is either not permitted or that private calls are separated from business calls for recapture of VAT taxes. Another approach uses dual SIM devices to differentiate corporate and personal use. 3 THE RISE OF BYOD Increasingly, consumer technology sets the agenda for the workplace. Consumerization of enterprise IT promises to lower costs, increase agility and produce other benefits. In addition, employees are demanding more control of the technology that they use at work through Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Choose Your Own Device (CYOD), Corporate Liable Employee Owned (CLEO), and Corporate Owned Personally-Enabled (COPE) programs.
