The need for wireless policy has never been greater. AOTMP research indicates that wireless expenses represent 35% of total telecom spend, and this percentage will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. Furthermore, with recent increases in the number of Smart Devices containing sensitive company-related information and the number of applications being deployed onto these devices, companies must ensure effective policies are in place in order to deter inappropriate behavior and to avoid potentially damaging consequences. In short, all of these events are driving enterprises to think more broadly about their wireless policies.

More enterprises have a documented wireless policy today. In fact, AOTMP research indicates that 81% of all enterprises have established a formal wireless policy. AOTMP research indicates that enterprises have been able to reduce their wireless expenses, on average, by 21% by establishing a wireless policy along with continuous compliance monitoring and enforcement efforts. Specific policy attributes driving cost reductions in wireless expense include:

- Outlining who is eligible for a wireless device
- Having documented approval processes
- Establishing a standard device refresh cycle
- Ensuring protocols are in place to avoid roaming and exuberant international travel costs
