What is the right mobile strategy for me?

Businesses across all industries have embraced mobile operational workflows and together devote almost $2 trillion annually to maintaining these mission-critical processes, according to research from the International Data Corporation. There is good reason for this massive spend. Enterprise mobile technology boosts worker productivity, improves the customer experience and streamlines numerous internal functionalities, from information technology troubleshooting to marketing and sales. However, implementing workable mobile processes that facilitate such improvements and generate real return is no easy task, as many organizations learn when embarking on wireless procurement and adoption.

That said, businesses are not doomed to overpay or put into place ill-fitting telecom products. IT sourcing teams can acquire the necessary mobile services without breaking the bank by simply familiarizing themselves with common in-the-wild deployments and taking advantage of available telecom expense management solutions.

Unpacking enterprise mobility

Enterprise mobility encompasses numerous implementations, many of which are designed to streamline operations through data-driven automation. For instance, field services businesses of all sizes have embraced on-the-go tools that allow dispatch teams to automate the work order creation process and distribute the finished documents to technicians who can reference, change and close out these items without putting pen to paper. Health care organizations have implemented mobile-driven automated workflows as well, leveraging mobile medical devices to conduct initial scans and distribute results from anywhere, along with patient monitors with wireless capabilities that push real-time data to doctors’ devices.

The advantages that these and other mobile-driven automated processes offer are obvious, which is why an estimated 57 percent of organizations worldwide are pursuing such initiatives, per McKinsey and Company. Companies on the outside looking in on this technological growth can join the automation bandwagon by reviewing their operations and moving forward with proven deployment models capable of garnering performance gains. Of course, understanding the mobile landscape and assessing business needs constitutes just half of the sourcing equation.
