Simply put, mobile working describes a method of working that doesn’t see employees tied to a desk to do their jobs. More specifically, it sees employees using devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops to work from anywhere. In the past few years, this trend has taken on many names and grown in popularity – most recently, remote working has been the most widely used term to describe it, mostly due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Mobile working’s popularity is not likely to slow down any time soon. According to a report by Technavio, the global enterprise mobility market size is poised to grow by $862 million by 2024.

Effective mobility doesn’t just offer your employees a more flexible working environment. That is certainly a great perk, and it will
definitely help you retain and acquire new talents, but ultimately, mobile working has the power to benefit your whole business. 

Better collaboration

Effective mobile service and mobile working strategy can help your business close the gap between mobile and office-based workers, reducing delays in decision making and improving processes.

Higher customer satisfaction and loyalty

When your customers can’t reach you because your mobile service is poor, they will turn to your competitors. 32% of customers would stop doing business with a brand after just one bad (or non-existent) experience.

Increased employee productivity and efficiency

Mobile devices boost worker productivity by 34%, saving employees two hours per day on average.

Lower business continuity risks

You can’t control unexpected events such as snow, floods, roadworks or even a global pandemic, but with the right mobile working strategy, you can ensure that your business can rely on its mobile service in case your fixed-line infrastructure is down.

Transitioning to a successful mobile working environment can help your business to unleash its full potential and deliver tangible business benefits.
