The Transformational Power of Deploying the Right Mobile Solution Sarah Roman / Thursday, June 14, 2018 Organizations that implement robust mobility solutions can transform mobile teams and gain a strategic and competitive advantage. This transformation hinges on both the end user adoption of the mobility solution and the promise of productivity that the solution offers. Let’s explore how selecting the right mobility solution can successfully reshape your business teams by comparing two mobile solutions: Microsoft’s SharePoint mobile app and the Infragistics’ SharePlus app. The Transformational Power of Mobile Collaboration According to a study from Strategy Analytics, by 2022 about 42.5% of the global workforce will be mobile. Modern businesses strive to enable these modern workers by moving to paperless and mobile solutions to sustain the speed at which organizations need to conduct work. That’s why 81% of CEOs see mobile technologies as being strategically important for customer engagement and service delivery and are searching for a silver bullet mobile solution. The Importance of Deploying the Right Mobile Solution To empower mobile teams, the solution needs to deliver on the promises of instant information access and the ability to capture and share information on the go. Making the right content readily at the fingertips of mobile workers helps close deals on the spot, resolve customer issues in the moment and keeps work flowing in the field. Collecting and sharing data in the field eliminates redundant data entry and streamlines company workflows. Unfortunately, more than 78 percent of apps are abandoned after first use, with end user resistance being the main reason why many enterprise mobility initiatives stall. The sources of this resistance stem from a poor user experience combined with the application’s failure to deliver on the mobility promises. A Checklist for Choosing the Right Mobility Solution When looking to assess a solution, you must consider a few of the necessities when implementing a mobile application for your teams: Is the solution simple for users? Does it actively transform the business and integrate with existing systems? Does it offer powerful functionality and manageable configurations? A Comparison Between Microsoft's SharePoint Mobile App and Infragistics SharePlus Microsoft recognized the need to support the transformation of mobile teams and released its SharePoint 2016 mobile app; making it available for anyone who already has invested in SharePoint. But, a free solution isn't always the right solution. Customer reviews of the SharePoint mobile app indicate the product may not meet enterprise needs.
