The technologies creating the “MobileFirst Enterprise” will take center stage at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this month.
Major buzz is building for this year’s version of the mobile tech industry’s largest conference.
The new BlackBerry “Mercury” unveiling will be a much anticipated highlight.
Samsung is teasing the launch of a new tablet. New smartphones and devices from LG, Huawei, Nokia, Sony and others are slated for big reveals at the show.
And we’re excited to show off the latest version of our Software-Defined Communications solutions, the Kinetic Communications Platform. Be sure to stop by our Pod #7UP.66 to check it out.
While the new devices always generate a lot of excitement, we expect everyone attending MWC to come away with a new appreciation for how these technologies are helping to evolve enterprises to be truly mobile first.
When applied to telephony and other forms of unified communications, mobile first means to cut the cord and make the mobile device the primary end-point for employee communications.
There are many drivers behind this type of strategy:
- Cost savings – If the focus is on mobile devices, desk phones can be retired for many users, which results in capital and operational savings.
- Employee reach and response – If the call placed to the main corporate number seamlessly goes through to an employee’s mobile, then communications will be more responsive and efficient.
- BYOD – Bring Your Own Device programs are widespread. Enterprises that can incorporate personal devices seamlessly into their communications systems and processes will have an edge in employee satisfaction, efficiency and mobility.
Learn more about how our Kinetic Platform can mobilize enterprise communications and help your enterprise to evolve to be mobile first.
Later this month we will begin a series of blog posts exploring a range of aspects of the mobile first trend. Stay tuned and be sure to comment to share you own views on how mobile first is reshaping enterprise communications.
