There are countless advantages to putting your organisation’s enterprise software and legacy systems in the palm of the hand of your personnel. It makes your team more effective, they will work more efficiently and your whole operation will run more smoothly. Everyone will be able to access the latest data, and update your systems in real time, keeping your company right up to date, so you can respond to every issue and take advantage of every opportunity, as they happen.
The cost of mobile apps
In an ideal world, you would create solutions for legacy software mobile use across all of your systems, designing individual apps for each one. However, this is not practically possible, due to both the time and the investment needed.
Various studies by the likes of Gartner and Kinvey, show that the average mobile app development project takes around 18 weeks, or over four months, to complete, with costs often in excess of $250,000 (£180,000).
Secure mobile use of multiple apps
To make matters worse, most organisations have a huge number of legacy and enterprise systems, each of which would need its own collection of mobile apps developed to replicate the functionality of the underlying application. Large scale operations could need as many as 2,000 individual apps, at a cost of half a billion dollars. This is clearly beyond most companies, and as a result, they simply struggle on with their legacy applications as they are, hoping to delay the inevitable decision to replace or rebuild.
But how can you avoid spending substantial sums on developing mobile apps whilst enabling your staff to work wherever and whenever they need – securely?
You could wait for your system vendor to release mobile apps
Waiting for major software vendors such as Oracle, SAP or Microsoft to get around to releasing a “point-specific” mobile app extension to your underlying applications may seem like a sensible strategy.
Until that is, you realise that, often the release of the app you’ve been waiting for can come at a considerable increase in costs, as vendors insist that you’re operating their latest and greatest versions of their systems! If you’ve added in third party add-ins or bespoke adaptations to the underlying systems this can involve yet more expense and delay.
Restricted access restricts performance
If you don’t invest in providing easy access to enterprise systems, staff will struggle to be as effective as they can be. Business processes will become slow and inefficient and your organisation will inevitably experience a time lag in data that hinders their responsiveness.
This leads to missed opportunities and can make problems much bigger and more costly than they would be if they were dealt with promptly. Fortunately, there is an alternative.
2Go connects your team to your systems
By delivering rapid mobile access to enterprise applications, 2Go keeps your team in touch without the expense of creating dedicated mobile apps. Your entire organisation can access, interact with and update your enterprise systems on the move, using the original software, via their smartphones, tablets and laptops. There is no need to create new mobile apps because 2Go works with all your legacy systems exactly as they are now, empowering your team with access from anywhere.
Secure mobile access to enterprise applications
Despite its flexibility and portability, 2Go remains fully secure at all times, so you can provide full data access without concerns that confidentiality will be compromised. Connections are securely encrypted to Federal Information Processing Standard 140.2 (otherwise known as FIPS140.2) which is the same level of security as mobile banking apps use. What’s more, no data is ever stored on the mobile devices used, so it remains protected by your existing protections and protocols.
A cost effective, immediate remote access solution
Why spend vast sums of money and wait months for development, when you can have secure mobile access to multiple enterprise applications in a matter of days with 2Go? Connect your team to the heart of your organisation right now, wherever they are, and create an efficient, effective, responsive operation for a fraction of the cost.
