We all know that mobile is used on a wide scale nowadays – in a consumer capacity certainly with 91% of consumers now using mobile devices – but also in business with CDW reporting 89% of 752 business employees using mobile devices for work. So how do companies use the continuing growth of mobile technology to their advantage? Enter Mobile Enterprise Resource Planning Software.
Enterprise Resource Planning software provides a one-stop business management solution with processes, workflows, document management, business intelligence and resource management. Ideal for increasing productivity on a day to day basis; the introduction of mobile access to the equation ensures that productivity can be achieved anywhere any time. For example:
- Manufacturing companies can furnish warehouses with a tablet to add updates, track processes or highlight issues
- Shop floors can use tablets to add in inventory levels, check for parts or understand when production will be complete on products
- Sales people out in the field can enter customer information, check product documents etc.
This real-time data entry relates to real-time insight within the back office; according to the “Empowering the mobile worker” report by Aberdeen Group, leaders are 49% more likely to integrate data in real-time between the back office and the field team via a mobile device.
