It’s easy to imagine an employee standing in line at an airport and using their smartphone to make productive use of their time. The employee quickly replies to a coworker, reviews a document or approves a contract.
That’s why mobile devices are gaining wide acceptance and fast traction in business. According to a recent report from Gartner, these tools provide new and improved ways for employees to collaborate, and employees without mobile will be excluded.
The report provides useful recommendations to help businesses implement a mobile strategy, like:
• Make it easy to switch between different tools and devices
• Assume that new applications will be used primarily on mobile
• Allow for the usage of collaboration tools in unexpected contexts
Gartner also provides a use-case showing how InterPortPolice, a global law enforcement association, uses tibbr for mobile collaboration. tibbr is an enterprise social network that unifies disparate devices through a centralized collaboration platform. InterPortPolice uses it primarily through mobile devices because their officers rarely spend time behind a desk.
It’s typical use-cases like this that hint at the true potential of tibbr Mobile. As Gartner put it, “Workers on factory, restaurant, hospital or retail store floors who previously had little contact with each other, or the rest of the organization, will get access to information and colleagues through their own mobile devices for the first time. Physical workplaces will be designed around mobile capabilities.”
