Companies with mobile workforces have found that mobile workforce management solutions add critical support to business strategies, and the growth of cloud-based solutions act as an alternative to traditional on-premises deployment. So, combining these through cloud-based mobile workforce management may be highly effective for your business.
Any company must manage its field workforce in one form or another, as people represent a large portion of operating expenses. For example, there are schedules to track, people to assign to jobs or projects, and human resources to balance. Thus, implementation of workforce management systems is growing quickly.
In fact, according to Gartner (News - Alert), by 2014 almost 90 percent of corporations will implement workforce management systems with mobile device integration. Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) also suggests that 40 percent of organizations using mobile workforce management see it as vital to fulfilling business strategies.
