Although we have covered businesses on the move in the Lily Blog a couple of time since we launched in August last year, it is still the main challenge for any company that looks further than their local town or city for growth in our continually unstable economic climate. Whether it’s the other end of the county or a completely different timezone, a distributed workforce must stay connected to their office, if nothing else to pick-up their e-mails but in most cases, to maintain an optimum level of business efficiency to their clients and colleagues.
“IDC expects the global mobile worker population to increase to more than 1.19billion in 2013, representing nearly 35% of the worldwide workforce”

But as with most things (apart from speed, which Usain Bolt over the past couple of years has really torn up the rulebook about) there is a limit. In this case, there is a limit on the ability to which voice and data communications can maintain a high-touch approach and retain customer loyalty in a highly competitive business environment.
Now unless you have been living in a cave (and even then, it must have been a close run thing), l’m sure that it has been very clear to see the rapid growth in smartphone and tablet technology over the past year. If you doubt the sentiment behind my last paragraph, just stop in a Service Station at around 9.00am on a Monday Morning and it will become very apparant that the mobile business community now has a heavy reliance on the iRange (iPad, iPhone & iPod) and other leading vendors in this space.
With a global decline in overall PC sales being attributed to the surging popularity of tablets and smartphones (Gartner, 2011), businesses are very quickly looking for ways to integrate personal devices into the workplace and utilise the cutting-edge audio and visual technology to maximise the productivity of their staff and provide a better service to their customers.
Where the limits of voice and data may tip you over the edge, LifeSize HD Video Conferencing is there to throw you a line.
