From answering emails on a smartphone and employees working remotely to creating a collaborative workspace with digital services and amenities, mobility needs in the workforce continue to rise substantially and are crucial to your success.
The result of a Gallup poll found that businesses that hire remote employees have grown from 39% in 2012 to 47% in 2016.1 The use of smartphones and telecommunication channels are also continuing to increase and provide a competitive edge.
These mobile connections are allowing employees and customers communicate in unprecedented speeds, and this is proving to pay off. According to Forbes, “SMBs that adopt mobile technologies are seeing double the revenue growth and are creating up to eight times as many jobs as their less mobile-ready peers.”2
Don’t let your business miss out on growth opportunities because of a lack in your team’s mobility and network support of these technologies.
While it’s one thing to provide mobility within your company, it’s also important to ensure your network can keep up with the demands. Older networks are being challenged while more devices are hitting the workforce. By 2020, it’s expected that each person will have four or more connected devices.3 And network functionality doesn’t stop at devices. The type of content being viewed also effects network functionality. For example, video accounts for 35% of all smartphone traffic and over 50% of tablet traffic.4
