Workhaus Takes Action To Mitigate Cell Phone Tax Risk, Recognising mobilityView As The Only Option Forward​

Workhaus To Immediately Provide mobilityView Cell Phone Tax Compliant Solution To Members As A Perk

Toronto, 4th February 2019 – Workhaus – the provider of bright and inspiring co-working workspaces that fuel productivity and inspire creativity to businesses of all sizes, has announced that it will provide the mobilityView – the leading provider of mobile data platforms for mobile smart devices (smartphones and tablets), MCM (Mobile Cost Management) Platform to all its members as a value added service.

Workhaus has been impressed by the MCM Platform’s ability to track every call, SMS message and byte of data from wireless cellular networks and Wi-Fi hotspots / networks and to separate the business usage, for any mobile smart device (smartphone, tablet, phablet, etc.), into tax compliant expense reports for an employer or a business customer. As Workhaus provides co-working space to a diverse network of people and companies of all sizes, it is looking to the future to provide a value added service to its members, in light of CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) recently revised and simplified the language it uses to explain cell phone tax law guidance (click here to read more).

Workhaus diverse membership include:

  • Businesses of all shapes and sizes
  • Full / part-time employees
  • Non-permanent contract workers
  • Gig workers (a term borrowed from the music industry to describe contract workers that have the luxury of picking and choosing contracts they work on to suit their lifestyle, due to a high demand for their skills and experience)
  • Self-employed

“Workhaus will be providing mobilityView solutions to our members as part of our value adding approach. Given changes to the tax code and the need to separate business from personal, mobilityView’s solutions are going to be an integral offer to our members, who range from the contractor / gig economy workforce all the way through to some of the world's largest multi-national corporates. Workhaus prides itself on providing services and business tools like mobilityView to enable and enhance the modern workforce, extending the membership experience beyond just the space itself. mobilityView will help our members take a data driven approach, driving digital transformation to reduce costs, increase flexibility within their organizations, and be tax compliant,” said Ryan Speers, Partner and COO, Workhaus.

“We are thrilled to be working with the fastest growing co-working space in Canada. We are pleased to extend our ecosystem to include Workhaus which is a Canadian gem,” said Thom Damstra, CEO of mobilityView. “We put, at customers’ fingertips, more information about usage of their wireless devices than even their Telecom Operators can provide them. We are also the first solution that can determine business from personal use across all usage types (voice, SMS/MMS and data) and regardless of whether it is Wi-Fi or a wireless cellular network. In fact, we work on every Telecom Operator’s network in the world – we are completely Operator agnostic,” says mobilityView CEO, Thom Damstra.

The MCM Platform by mobilityView is a cloud service that enables individuals to properly account for the business and personal usage and cost of a mobile smart device. The tool is great for any individual to automate their mobile smart device expense claim process for economic reimbursement and accounts for voice, SMS, data and roaming scenarios. The solution is also highly applicable for businesses of any size, seeking to only pay for business usage of mobile assets. It provides a complete view of all mobile costs, previously not thought possible. All wireless deployment strategies are (COPE, CYOD, COLD, BYOD, BYOO etc.) supported and resolves taxable-benefit-use associated with personal use, requiring no wireless operator integration (Over-The-Top solution).

The MCM Platform is a business solution that offers big wins for customers:

  • Reduce mobile costs by as much as 70%
  • Provide greater usage detail and analysis than ever before – ever second, every SMS, and every byte of data
  • No more bill shocks – real time data and analytics with next generation alerting
  • Reduce the costs of managing mobile device fleets, both capital and manpower
  • Future proof a company, and their employees, against tax compliancy

Employers can sleep at night knowing that their costs are contained and employees can experience mobile democracy – they are freed up to do whatever they want on their mobile device: Play video games, watch movies; engage in social media with utter privacy. “The MCM Platform provides clear unequivocal and immediate return on investment for businesses of any size”, said Thom Damstra, CEO of mobilityView. “The flexibility of the platform opens up the tantalizing possibilities to simultaneously reduce cost, provide new flexi benefits, and increase the usage of mobility within any organization. Until now these three simultaneous benefits have been impossible to deliver.”
