Companies will look to convergence technology to have their solutions to hand on one platform, according to Romex managing director Jason Laight, with compliance key for mobile workforces
“2012 will see further growth in the smartphone market, particularly as companies with a mobile workforce are trying to converge multiple services.
“Keen to reduce costs and have all their solutions on one device, applications that reduce hardware are becoming increasingly popular.
“All industries are looking at convergence technology in order to have their solutions on one platform. With work legislation becoming tighter, particularly with regard to health and safety, firms are not only looking for software solutions to reduce cost and increase productivity, they need to know they are compliant in order to protect themselves and their mobile workforce.”
