Hi Business Professionals,
Are you confused about how mobility can make your company profitable?
If you presently have major concerns about how mobility can help your business become profitable or have tried to add mobility to your company only to have it fall short of what you need then you own it to your business to take this mobility questionnaire to see how to how to plan your mobile network.
I am asking questions about mobility because for many businesses mobility has become a problem because there are so many devices and applications on the market that many companies are confused about what is best for them and how it will help make their business better.
Why I’m I asking these questions?
I am asking these questions to show business that by asking themselves the hard questions about their business and how mobility can help that work. It will also show them that mobility must be something that is planned for in order for it to be successful. I am sure that after you answer these questions you will see that only through planning can mobility be successful.
These questions will help you form a mobile business plan that we can use to help your enterprise to become mobile and productive.
1. Describe your business
2. What do you want to accomplish in your business by going mobile?
3. Do you have mobile devices now?
4. How many mobile devices do you have in your company?
5. Who owns the devices? You or the company?
6. Are you or your staff trained on how to correctly use the device?
7. Do any of the devices have company data not on your main system?
8. Do any of the devices have password protection installed?
9. Do you have any IT management in place to check if theses devices are being linked to your system on a daily schedule?
10. If the devices are lost or stolen do you have a plan to retrieve that data?
11. Do you have a budget set up for mobility?
12. What is the time frame for you to become mobile?
13. When are you planning to implement your mobile plan?
Now that I have answered these questions can you tell me more about mobility?
In today’s economy there has been no more confusing technology then business mobility. What does the term mobility really mean? What is mobile is it a cell phone, a PDA, or a WI-FI enabled laptop? Or is it a little bit of all of them. Maybe mobility is in the network the ease of being connected to your important information no matter what device you are using. If that is how you’re thinking of mobility then you are halfway there. Yes, I said halfway there, the other and most important half is what many businesses fail to understand.
That is mobility is your culture, applications, and how your business relates to your employees and customers. In short mobility is you. Here’s why no mobile solution can be effective for you if it’s not tailored for the way you do business. Many companies that have tried and failed at mobility have blamed their failure on not having the right device or network. Then they compound their failure by buying more devices and trying the latest greatest network offering without taking a look at the real barrier to why their mobile project keeps failing that is how they do business. Instead of creating a mobile assessment of how their business works and which parts of their business can become mobile and what parts should be left as they are. Instead they depend on the marketplace to tell them how to run their business in the mobile environment.
While the mobile market has some great products and services they are only tools to help you build your mobile network but, they are not your network simply because they don’t know how your business works. So they really can’t make you mobile only you can do that. So the question you should be asking me is “How can you make my business mobile, and where do we start”? The fact that you are asking that question means you are thinking that mobility is more than just devices.
