If “tech mobility” is a bit of a fuzzy concept when it comes to your business, allow us to explain. Mobility solutions make sharing your company’s information easy so that your employees can work from anywhere; this can mean anywhere within the office or anywhere off-site.
Tech mobility typically involves software solutions, the storage of information (usually in a cloud), as well as physical devices being used. It is among the latest tech trends, from business VoIP and e-commerce to cloud computing and Software as a Service (SaaS).
But perhaps one of the most important things to understand about tech mobility is how it impacts your employees and benefits your business at its core. How does this work, exactly?
Here are the reasons tech mobility matters for your business:
- Integrated Devices
- Increased Productivity
- More Thought About Security
- New Business Opportunities

The use of mobile devices like smartphones, laptops, tablets, and smart TVs make mobile access extremely important in day-to-day business operations. For IT teams who are constantly working to maintain, improve, and safeguard your business’ networks and operating systems, tech mobility provides the solution of integrating devices, regardless of the models or age.
An example of this is if different departments within your company use different devices or information systems. Mobility can improve their inter-department communication, collaboration, and present opportunities to better streamline data, tools, and strategies. Another example is casting a presentation from a team member’s laptop to a smart TV during a meeting.
With the growing number of hybrid office-and-remote work models, as well as more mobile devices being used in the workplace, mobility solutions have never been more important for your business. For example, the use of mobile apps by employees company-wide allows them to easily message their colleagues about projects, share files, and hop on quick video chats. They can do this from their office, conference rooms, or while away on work trips. In short? Mobility solutions result in increased productivity.
And there are more perks! First of all, increased productivity should increase your revenue. Secondly, mobility solutions are relatively inexpensive and reduces operational costs, especially if your employees can use their own devices for their work. Plus, 49% of employees who worked for companies with a “bring your own device” policy (BYOD) told Forbes they were actually more productive using their own device for work.
More Thought About Security
When investing in mobility tools, it is also important to encrypt any sensitive data and require employees to authenticate their identity. Thankfully there are several ways to secure your digital assets. If you don’t already have something in-place to protect sensitive company information, mobility tools will do the job while simultaneously elevating your data security overall.
A few enterprise mobility solutions and enterprise-grade security systems include Identity and Access Management (IAM), Mobile Application Management (MAM), and Mobile Device Management (MDM). They can also be designed for authorized personnel to access and to ensure more secure communication.
New Business Opportunities
Think about how integral video conference calls became during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how it is still being used in various industries’ business operations, including healthcare, real estate, and more. Video is one example of tech mobility, but there are others, as well.
Mobile chatbots that incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) allow potential and current customers to request information for frequently asked questions, but without sacrificing time or employee resources. Similar virtual assistants are predicted to be geared toward employees, as well, to help guide them, for example, toward data insights and actions that will help them identify entirely new customer markets and revenue streams.
