There’s a lot of factors that are driving the mobile working trend. Access to more reliable high-speed connectivity. An increased number of smart devices being used. As well as how the demographics in the workplace and employees’ expectations around work-life balance is changing.
However, too many businesses are failing to help their mobile workers to be as successful as they could be. Being effective and productive away from the office is about more than having a smartphone and a laptop. It’s about having access to the right tools, the right information and the right contacts all in one place. This is where business VoIP and business mobile come into play.
