Smartphones, besides being fun, are integrating into the business technology mesh.
The key concept here is that smartphones primarily give you an advantage when you’re mobile. By definition. The second key concept is that we’ve all been trained by experience to be cautious about doing things differently. Let’s let go of that for just a brief moment.
With a smartphone, and this list is not exhaustive, you can read email, send email, see your calendar, create documents/notes/spreadsheets/presentations, update facebook, linkedin, make presentations, print out contracts, track employees in the field, tweet, text, create estimates and quotes, remote to your desktop in the office, grab a file from the company server, look up pricing, schedule, buy, sell, and finally yes, make a slightly warmed croissant with nutella filling.
What we’d like to do is to get you thinking about adopting a new technology that is moving you and/or your business into the future. So our challenge is twofold: If you don’t have a smartphone, get one. If you do have a smartphone, choose a primary function you need access to when mobile. That’s not so hard so choose also a second ability which “would be nice”. Look for apps that do it and TRY THEM OUT. If you need help, we’re there for you. It’s what we do.
I’m gonna go try out that warmed croissant with nutella app…
