Struggling with digital transformation and mobility? Here's a guide

17 Oct 2017

Digital transformation has dramatically changed the way we do business, with mobile technology fast becoming almost mandatory in every industry worldwide.

This can’t be achieved with desk-bound employees or ‘fixed’ computer setups, which consequently is fuelling the urgency to mobilise workforces, workflows and operations systems.

Xplore Technologies' ANZ Director, Brett Gross says this is causing problems around the world as the consequences of hastiness can be costly.

Unfortunately, a lot of organisations have made bad decisions on mobile technologies that are later deemed to be “wasteful spending."

"That is because some companies find it challenging to properly evaluate today’s many mobile technology options, and execute a successful field service mobility project," Gross adds.

Xplore has provided a step-by-step roadmap to mobility that details how to evaluate and buy mobile devices the right way for your business with insider tips to help boost your credibility with colleagues, customers, and C-level executives alike.
