Smartphone applications enhance workplace management and save businesses time and money. With 77% of North Americans using smartphones, and 1 in 5 adults accessing the internet exclusively on smartphones, now is the time for your organization to be at the forefront of this emerging digital trend.

There are a number of clear benefits when it comes to implementing mobile technologies in the workplace. Companies that are more profitable than their competitors are more likely to use mobile apps and to introduce measures such as comprehensive training to facilitate app adoption, according to the 2015 Accenture Mobility Research report.
