Mobile Technologies have transformed the way we live and do business. To be a market leader, organizations can no longer defer their initiatives towards mobilizing the enterprise. Enterprise mobile apps have become essential tools for any company seeking operational efficiency, productivity, and boost to its bottom line.
Gartner Research predicts that the number of Mobile CRM Apps will grow by 500 percent by 2014.
Gartner reports there are 200 apps now in app stores. By 2014, there will be 1,200. Mobile apps will come in a variety of flavors, attacking specific aspects of the CRM experience.
What Does this Emerging Trend in Mobile Applications Mean for Businesses?
Emerging mobile applications, systems, and devices are transforming the Application Development (AD) space rapidly, and are one of the top three CIO priorities at the enterprise level. Gartner research found that CIOs expect more than 20 percent of their employees to use tablets instead of laptops by 2013, hastening the process of change as AD tools and applications evolve to address the requirements of these new devices.
Mobile technologies have transformed the way we live, play and do business. Businesses have moved from BlackBerrys and laptops, and forward-thinking enterprises have started using mobile technology across their organizations around the globe, to give employees, and customers access to appropriate data when and where they need it. (Harvard Business Review and SAP have published a series of reports on how mobile can transform your business.)
Seeing this significant shifts, many small and medium businesses want to extend their customer service to the mobile platform market. To be a market leader, aggressive businesses can no longer defer their initiatives towards mobilizing the enterprise. Enterprise mobile apps have become essential tools for any company seeking operational efficiency, productivity, and boost to its bottom line.
