As organisations seek to improve operational efficiency and customer engagement, mobile access to ERP systems is becoming standard. Craig Charlton writes.
In this age of Bring Your Own Device, mobile devices are affordable, mainstream, reliable, secure, and scalable to run multiple applications.
With the ability to connect to the Internet and download a wide variety of applications, more and more end users are purchasing mobile devices for their consumer needs.
Furthermore, we are now able to prove return on investments from those organisations that have implemented mobile solutions and developed BYOD policies.
Mobile user access to ERP and other back office systems has become a core requirement as organisations seek operational efficiency and deepening customer engagement.
Without mobile access, system users are disadvantaged by needing to return to a desktop, often after a job is completed, to enter data relating to that job and get information about other jobs.
Frequently that information is not entered at all and become more of a hindrance to user adaption of your ERP investment.
The majority of ERP workers are growing up with the ability to instantly access information and interact with that information wherever and whenever. These same users are expecting the same thing with their ERP data and are making this a requirement.
