Enabling the mobile workforce to be productive is the ultimate goal of any mobile business initiative. While the idea that mobile devices like the iPad, Galaxy Tab and today’s leading smartphones can change how users work in the enterprise is well established, the real challenge is how to enable a mobile workforce to have device access to all the different content they need to do their job without having to circumvent security and content governance objective or require users to learn a mix of consumer oriented software tools and work in different user interfaces in order to be productive. Viewing, editing, annotating and sharing content must be available from the same application.

Most businesses realize a significant return on their investment within eighteen months of implementation of VoIP. According to a recent study by PC World, businesses realize an average net savings of 20 to 30 percent when they switch from their legacy phone system to VoIP. The initial investment can come with a hefty price tag, however.
Gaining the trust of online customers is vital for the success of any company that transfers sensitive data over the Web. When shopping online, consumers are concerned about identity theft and are therefore wary of providing untrusted sources with their personal information, especially their credit card details. Other types of online businesses require different but equally sensitive information. People are reluctant to provide their national insurance numbers, passwords, or other confidential personal information, or sometimes even just name, address, and phone number. Perhaps the information will be intercepted in transit, they fear, or perhaps the destination itself is manned by imposters with ill intent. The result is an abandoned transaction.
