Benefits of Enterprise Mobility in 2021 & Beyond

As countries throughout Europe now face a third wave of COVID-19, the importance of digitisation is getting more and more reinforced. Digitisation largely means making businesses more mobile, allowing individuals to work from home even after the pandemic is over.

The above graph shows how the concept of system mobilisation has been gaining traction over the years. Prior to 2019, the CAGR of enterprise mobility and business systems from 2017-19 stood at 9% as the industry grew by roughly €167.8 million ($200 million). However, after 2020 the same rose to 17% as the revenue grew within the year by roughly €500 million ($600 million).

A similar trend can be seen on a global scale as well. For organisations, it is no longer just about keeping their head above water. Industries are making huge strides towards enterprise mobility and those who don’t embark on this venture risk becoming irrelevant; or at least risk facing severe losses.

Business Mobility Software – The Benefits

While traditionalists may remain wary of enterprise mobility, they cannot deny the variety of benefits it boasts such as efficiency, high return on investment, unprecedented growth, and more. It’s the price of admission that people are usually afraid of, such as infrastructural change, development of mobile applications, and management of staff during the initial phase to name a few.

There are ways to avoid all of that as well; which we’ll discuss at the end of this article.

Mobilisation Offers Increased Efficiency & Productivity

Business mobility means increased efficiency, lower costs, and better productivity; not just during lockdowns but also when compared to normal business days. This is possible as IoT innovation is coupled with mobilisation software.

In order to facilitate employees, at-home systems can connect to numerous low-cost and -complexity devices over a much larger area (Massive IoT). This allows better data flow, increased support, and minimal energy consumption, effectively leading to improved efficiency.

Massive IoT connections since 2019 have roughly tripled on a global scale, introducing newer opportunities such as smart metering, fleet management, process automation, and more. And this improvement applies to everyone; from partners and managers to employees.

Quicker decisions, readily available and up to date information, employee versatility (in terms of the technology they use), and many other factors combine to eliminate the learning curve that is inevitable when switching from one device to another as enterprises go mobile.

Reduced Need for Supervision

There are several reports suggesting that remote work is draining since the line between where you work and live gets blurred. However, there have been several studies suggesting that remote work does in fact lead to increased productivity.

Employees take on more responsibility and work 1.4 more days per month, which means less supervision is required. A major factor leading to this is the fact that employees get to use personal devices for work – not to mention the elimination of daily commute and tiredness associated with it!

Real Time Analysis

Business Intelligence (BI) is a crucial element when it comes to facilitating management decisions. It’s one thing to actually keep an eye on the goings on of the workplace, it’s entirely another to have a detailed real time analytical report at hand when making decisions.

These analytics become even more useful when working remotely or from home, allowing employees and managers to make informed decisions without depending on in-office presence.

Real-Time Collaboration

The biggest challenges faced by any organisation when setting up remote work is that of security and collaboration; especially for large companies. IBM suggests that an average data breach can cost a company £2.7 million.

However, while mobility solutions include collaborative measures for better communication, not every organisation is able to embed those measures efficiently.

To tackle that issue, organisations usually have two options; train individuals or implement a system that offers real-time collaboration in a ‘humanistic’ manner. By making collaboration easy, organisations can make their mobilisation venture much more successful, eliminating distractions from the equation.

Reduced Paperwork

Digitising documents and going paperless is a crucial element in competing in today’s market, increasing efficiency, managing workflow, and facilitating implementation of other technologies. Going paperless and enterprise mobility go hand in hand; helping companies take advantage of data centralisation.

It’s also a greener solution, so along with doing themselves a favour, organisations also get to enjoy benefitting Earth!

Reduction in Operational Costs

Because enterprise mobility allows for automation of processes, operational costs are likely to fall. These savings can be re-allocated to other departments and employees can prioritise more important tasks.

Organisations also get to benefit from decreased IT management burden; especially when offering Company Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) devices. COPE offers numerous benefits of its own (for cost and productivity alike) regardless of whether employees are working on-site or remotely, with cost-efficiency being one of the main benefits.

Mobility Solutions

In order to stay afloat and relevant, businesses need to start focusing on enterprise mobility now more than ever. The storm that the world is currently in doesn’t seem to be ready to leave yet; and even when it does, it is sure to leave behind remnants that will change the future of business.

Remote work is an element that is here to stay and organisations need to prepare for that; or risk being considered outdated. Apart from that, the potential for return on investment for mobile solutions is a rather lucrative one; saving time and money for all who partake in it.

To address the concerns presented with the venture, 2Go Universal Mobile Access Software offers swift and easy mobilisation, along with a secure mobile solution that can integrate with your ERP, CRM, and other platforms without you having to update your systems.

2Go Universal Mobile Access Software is based on the cloud, meaning that everything stays secured and available 24/7 for all. As a hybrid software, 2Go can be integrated with Android and Apple devices without having to develop a native application from scratch for employees using different OS.
