“Businesses often distribute phones to their employees, especially those who are out in the field,” said Craig Thompson, media coordinator of Retina-X Studios. “Our PhoneSheriff for Business gives those businesses the opportunity to take advantage of everything the software has to offer, and will now save them money as they do it.”

PhoneSheriff for Business offers the following range of features:

• Comprehensive control options giving employers the power to filter and block calls placed on employer-owned phone lines, and to monitor all activity with the phone. Employers may also block specific mobile applications, websites, and SMS activity.

• Employers may place time restrictions on mobile devices designating when calls are and are not allowed, or times when the phone is rendered unusable.

• Monitoring of all content accessed by mobile phones.

• The provisions of immediate GPS location and device-lock capabilities plus alert-message notification of an altered SIM card.

“Any business that wants to ensure their employees are doing the right thing with company-issued phones will benefit from this mobile spy program,” adds Thompson. “It gives people an opportunity to keep an eye on what employees are doing, even when they are working outside of the office.”

PhoneSheriff for Business is available for Android and Blackberry smartphones and iPhone. Employees are unaware that they are being monitored and the software logs all information so that users are unable to delete usage histories.
