Mobile Apps: An Essential Business Tool

There’s huge value in the data you hold in your business system but it’s no use to you in the office if you spend most of your time out of the office. And the same goes for your delivery team, sales reps, warehouse staff and management team who are often on the move.

In this digital world, decisions need to be made quickly, information needs to be at hand and you need to offer what your competitors can’t.

With smartphone applications, you can give your staff the ability to easily create, access and share business information through hand-held mobile devices. As well as giving them real-time access to data anywhere, anytime, you’re enabling them to do their jobs as quickly and efficiently as possible and without any significant investment on infrastructure or setup. Plus, adoption rates are high as many are already familiar with using mobile
apps.

By 2020, mobile apps are forecast to generate around US$189 billion in revenues via app stores and in-app advertising. Some of the most popular operating system-native stores are Apple’s App Store, Google Play, as well as Windows Phone Store and BlackBerry App World. As of March 2017, there were 2.8 million available apps at Google Play Store and 2.2 million apps available in the Apple’s App Store, the two leading app stores in the world.
From your warehouse floor to the sales reps on the road, integrated mobile ERP applications are rapidly reinventing the employees experience. And the associated benefits for your business are vast; increased productivity, improved customer service, reduced admin costs and increased revenue potential. Not to mention eliminating all those calls back to the office.

The challenge for you is to understand how best to harness these apps to achieve your medium and long-term commercial goals. And to work out who has the most to benefit from being more mobile.

So, don’t be afraid to embrace the digital revolution and don’t let it pass you by. As a race, we are incredibly adaptable, so rather than feel overwhelmed by it all, take some time to learn about the benefits of enterprise mobility; for you, your employees and your business.
