When it comes to small and medium businesses, mobility’s here to stay.
If you’re not handing out laptops, tablets or smart phones, workers will bring them on their own. Most don’t have a lot of choice in the matter.
Here’s why: 82% of employees have to access enterprise applications and data while away from desktops, according to the folks at Forrester Consulting. On average, Forrester says, mobile users are 51 minutes more productive each day.
