Mobility Connects the Services Workforce to Drive Growth and Profitability
|Download the Changepoint Mobility Fact Sheet
For services organizations mobility enables business success with anytime, anywhere access to enterprise applications. The mobile workforce that is empowered with simple solutions to capture and report on business critical data stays ahead of the competition. It is estimated that by 2015, the world's mobile worker population will reach 1.3 billion, representing 37.2% of the total workforce.1
More and more services, product management and IT professionals rely on mobile solutions to remain connected to their enterprise applications - where they want and when they want. Through the use of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets users have on-demand access to the data, tasks and approval-rights they require. Mobile consultants who track expenses typically want immediate interaction to enter expense information when expenses are incurred. This means that finance departments are no longer waiting days or weeks for project financial data speeding up the order to cash cycle.
