Business Information Mobility Now A Necessity

In this modern world of technology, mobility is backbone of technological advances. Smartphones are becoming just as powerful as desktop computers were and some batteries are even starting to live up to the Energizer slogan; "keeps going and going". While businesses strive towards mobility and efficiency, one major aspect is left behind - paper documents.

People are mobile - as are their phones and laptops - and aren't always within the walls of their office. Mobile technology has given us anytime, anywhere access to our contacts, emails and messages. Unfortunately, paper documents cannot be in two places at once and are either carried with you or left at the office, with the former leaving colleagues at a disadvantage. Copying documents isn't always the best solution either as you then have to keep track of all copies and ensure people are not left with out-of-date information.

In a survey conducted by KRC Research, 92% of respondants said that information mobility is necessary, not just nice to have. In addition to this, almost 80% claimed that a lack of information mobility would likely harm productivity, business processes and innovation.
