The modern enterprise workforce poses new challenges for IT. Today’s employees work in more places, on more devices— personal or company-owned—and over more networks than ever, using a diverse array of datacenter applications, mobile apps, SaaS and cloud services. As they move among apps, networks and devices, IT needs to be able to control access and ensure data and application security without impeding productivity. That means enabling users to get to work quickly and easily in any scenario without having to deal with different ways of accessing each app. Traditional VPNs and point solutions add complexity for both users and IT, increase costs and fail to enable a holistic approach to business mobility. Over the years, many IT organizations have addressed these evolving requirements through point solutions and by case-by-case configuration of access methods. The resulting fragmented experience poses a key roadblock to productivity and increases user frustration. For IT, the lack of a

Citrix XenMobile and Citrix ShareFile meet the complex needs of your mobile workforce with a complete, integrated and secure enterprise mobility solution—with a consumer-like experience people love. Both products are included in XenMobile Enterprise.
Both inside and outside sales professionals are becoming more mobile, with industry research showing that half are already using tablet devices and an additional 26 percent plan to adopt them in the next 18 months. By integrating mobility in the sales workforce, businesses are able to increase overall productivity, effectiveness as well as meeting sales goals since they are able to access information and content anytime, anywhere, through any mobile device. Yet, there are still major obstacles to overcome when trying to implement a strategy to bring mobility to your sales force.
Download this white paper to gain insight from the research firm IDC which predicts that some 1.2 billion workers will be using mobile enterprise tools by 2011, representing roughly a third of the total global workforce (February 2010). Some of these people are almost exclusively mobile, whereas some will only occasionally use mobile enterprise tools. Whatever the case, there are very few who would argue against the fact that investing in mobility has the potential to raise productivity, accessibility and visibility.
The path forward is clear: the best practices organizations have already taken the first steps to establish a stronghold with the application of Mobile Workforce Management Solutions. They are already at the vanguard of technology adoption, implementation, and usage. However, as the global services economy continues to expand, all services organizations that expect to compete successfully in their respective market space will need to embrace the state-of-the-art technologies that will allow them to survive – and thrive – in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
Mobile Workforce Management solutions enable companies to deliver superior field service and customer satisfaction (see Part I, Setting The Stage For Best Practices Service Performance). However, a successful Mobile Workforce Management transformation is dependent upon many factors beyond simply deploying new technology. It requires a full understanding of the overall business objectives, a keen understanding of historical processes, a standard system of key performance metrics along with the organization’s current performance in those metrics, and effective communication to ensure organizational readiness and project execution.
Even if you have only 15 mobile workforce employees, you can reduce costs and improve the customer’s experience using optimization software. Today, it’s easy because you don’t even have to provide dedicated mobile devices to your field employees, just an app. But how do you avoid difficult transitions for workers, long implementation times, and solutions that don’t work as you really needed? This paper walks you through the 6 steps to successful decision making.
Businesses with between 15-250 mobile workforce employees are looking for optimization software. At the same time, they don’t want a complex enterprise solution with long integration times and complex IT requirements. Many vendors are offering cloud-based solutions. But what does that mean? Is it secure? In this Q&A, we answer the most common questions about cloud-based software solutions for field service management.
The cost of ineffective customer service visits isn't just in money: the greater cost is in customer satisfaction. When a mobile workforce employee doesn't arrive on time, is missing equipment, or doesn't resolve the issue on the first visit, it leads to customer dissatisfaction, lost business, and today, public complaints in the media and social networks. Every single service organization understands the crucial value of great customer service. Every single visit to a customer is critical. In this paper, we reveal the 3 steps to a great visit every time.
Deploying a mobile workforce solution used to be a major undertaking. Today, it’s easy. You don’t need any specialized devices; management software is cloud-based, and training is short and simple. In other words, obstacles of the past have disappeared, and now is the time to implement mobile workforce solutions for organizations with between 15 and 250 mobile workforce.
In this brief, you’ll see why it’s easier than ever to implement software solutions for mobile workforce.
