There are distinct challenges at play when you’re a Mobile Executive. You are probably a business owner or senior leader in an organisation who is required to make strategic and operational level decisions while you are out and about, on the-fly while having all the information available to make that decision. How visible is your information in real-time to allow you to make these decisions?
Technology is always evolving, and, as a result, so are our lives and businesses. Today, everyone uses a computer to plan their day, answer email, or research a potential new client. However, mobile technology is changing our working lives in completely new ways.
” 43% of employees say the ability to work remotely is a must-have. “
At first, mobile phones gave us the freedom to make a call from the street or answer email on the train. Now, our customers expect us to respond to email and answer calls whether we’re in the office or not. Some even expect us to be able to make critical decisions wherever we are. Even our employees expect to be mobile. According to a 2017 survey conducted by Staples, only 32% of employees spend the entire day in the office, and 43% say the ability to work remotely is a must-have.
If mobile is moving from a luxury to a necessity, what can we do to remain competitive? At Red Arrow Consulting, we recommend utilising a Financial Project Management System such as WorkflowMax.
