4 Steps To Choosing The Best Mobile Technology For Your Environment

In today’s world every worker regardless of their job is now expected to be connected to their colleagues, customers, partners and prospects digitally. To stay competitive, it is almost a necessity to have “mobilised” operations. Mobility solutions vary from mobile computers and tablets to wearable devices and mounted computers. With the right mobile devices, you should get features that will benefit your entire operations.

1.Identify & Remove Your Roadblocks

Mobile technologies can help you to remove roadblocks that are stopping you from achieving better productivity and operational agility that will allow you to adapt easily to any future changes in your industry.

Some roadblocks that might be holding you back:

  • Manual, paper-based processes that slow workflows and cause human errors
  • Old mobile devices that increase complications & limit growth
  • Underperforming solutions
  • Archaic systems vulnerable to cyber attacks
  • Workers being hindered by inadequate form factors & lack of true mobility

Each of these roadblocks are easily replaceable by mobile technology that will empower you to take operations to the next level of productivity/

2.Figure out what is a ‘must have’ and a ‘must consider’

When thinking about replacing the roadblocks in your operations, you should be making a list of features in a mobile device and categorising them into ‘must haves’ and ‘must considers’. This allows you to have a clear breakdown of your non-negotiables and those that may be considered less important and removable if not within your budget.

3.Shop around and take test drives

When looking for the right mobile devices, be sure to explore your options and do your research. Using credible sources such as case studies, whitepapers and product breakdowns can really help you to make a decision on what kind of device to go for. When setting up meetings with potential partners, be sure to ask plenty of questions such as questioning the ruggedness of the devices, the product lifespan, lead times, warranties, if there are any trial periods, who is the point of contact for software or hardware issues etc.

4.Choose the right partner

When choosing a mobile solution for your business, you want to ensure that you have a partner that is working with your best interest in mind. To do this, you must ensure that they can offer a team that will be able to work with you to deploy a successful mobility solution with little complication, continuously guiding you to make the most out of your solution.
