About this webinar:
The mobile workforce, including those working in challenging or hazardous business environments, are frequently using consumer mobile devices (smartphones, tablets and laptops) with a bespoke app or two inside a – supposedly – rugged case, or the variety of devices preferred by military engineers. One is ‘under-specced’, the other is ‘over-specced’. Most enterprises ignore the ‘goldilocks’ centre.
This webinar will discuss how industries that are equipping fieldwork staff, and others working in challenging business situations, with mobile devices are counting the cost of using the wrong kit. Join us to discover how best to go about selecting devices for your organisation and learn from those that are getting it right.
