If you take a look around you when you're in public, you'll quickly notice that mobile phone use is mainstream.
So, it may come as no surprise that many companies are implementing mobility strategies in keeping with the times.
The question is, are you?
These days, you can't afford to overlook mobility as a business strategy -- not if you're serious about effectively meeting your customers' needs.
But there's another reason why you shouldn't ignore mobility. It is proven to result in better business processes and more business productivity.
Still, getting your employees on board with the mobility trend at work can understandably be a challenge.
Here's a rundown on how you can use mobility challenges and opportunities to improve operations and productivity at your company.
The Mobility Situation
You may find it challenging to encourage workers at your company to take advantage of mobility at work. After all, many have become accustomed to their own ways of completing tasks.
As a result, it might take additional work to motivate them to transition to being mobile.
On the other hand, other employees might already be future-forward when it comes to mobility. As you work with them, you could actually learn from some of their personal strategies.
Mobility Encouragement Strategies
One way you can encourage your employees to be more mobile is to promote apps at your company, rather than leaving the discovery of helpful apps to chance.
If your workers are dealing with a problem in the workplace, simply point them to an app that could help them.
In fact, you can create your own custom solution that looks like and functions as an app that has been professionally developed.
Also, you can let your employees know that the benefit of learning mobile solutions is worth the amount of effort required to become comfortable with these solutions.
Because mobility may pave the way for them to work at home and even attend a conference without having to visit the office.
Additional Mobility Strategies
You could also promote the idea of "BYOD," or "bring your own device." With this idea, you could encourage your workers to use their smartphones and tablets at work on a regular basis.
Make sure that the apps you promote in the workplace have multichannel capabilities. In this way, you can keep employees from facing technical challenges with their tablets versus smartphones, for example.
