Late last year the team at Palladium had a go at trying to predict technology trends for 2012. Rupert predicted that “in 2012 business software companies will embrace the mobile tablets and smartphones that have been sneaking their way into the office”. This infograpgh from Vertic is very much in line with Rupert’s prediction. It explores how businesses are adapting to mobile devices in the workplace and offers future trends that will be seen in the enterprise tablet industry.
In today’s rapid paced business environment, ease of access to accounting software and CRM information anywhere and anytime outside the office is not only vital, but it is also expected. Companies that are able to react the quickest and embrace new productivity enhancing tools will gain the edge in their competitive market. Having become accustom to using smartphones and tablets in our personal lives, it’s no wonder that these devices are increasingly finding their way into businesses. No longer are personal and business pursuits handled separately – we want to have access to both worlds from one device. Here at Palladium half of us are taking our personal iPads into sales and support meetings to more easily convert our notes into GoldMine CRM or put customer data into to IRIS Exchequer.
