The US is the most highly concentrated market for mobile workers – with 72.2 percent of the workforce being mobile in 2008.•The perception of “mobile as purely a consumer media” is akin to arguing that professionals don’t use computers for their work, purchasing and communications activities either•It’s just a matter of explaining the business case, the expansive suite of communication tools that mobile offers, and the B2B strategies and best practices that they need to follow•B2B customers have already gone mobile.

  7. 7. MAWD Version 2.0Why B2B Apps? (Part 2 - Selling Points)Time: 13.45 - 14.15Thinking about the next steps?Notes/Thoughts•Create an App that helps make something: Better, Faster and Easier•It has to be a pleasure to use•Think inside the box, help extend the brand value proposition•Mobile Content: Leverage existing content, shorter texts, video to convey long articles, audio to summarize, SMS alerts.
