Make Your Mobile Phones Work Smarter with Mobilize Tuesday 25 October 2011 PDF Print In these turbulent economic times, cost is king, and all public and private sector organisations are looking for maximum value for money. Staff are an expensive resource, and in the current economic climate they’re expected to be highly flexible, multitask wherever possible and keep adding value. The same is true of workplace technology. In the current challenging climate, many companies and public sector organisations are looking closely at their work strategies and taking steps to not only survive the present crisis but also plan for the long term. At the heart of these plans are new technologies. Like the humble photocopier that now doubles as a colour printer, scanner and fax machine that can even email a document to you, office equipment needs to earn its keep. If it doesn’t allow employees to work smarter, its days will be numbered. Mobile phones are of course an essential business tool these days, not just for taking calls, but for email, web browsing, and taking photographs too. Smartphone manufacturers are in fierce competition to see who can create the most functionality. This month has seen the launch of the latest iPhone model, together with a new version of the Google Android operating system, with the first Nokia Windows Phone 7 handsets due to be unveiled any day now. New technologies featured include advanced voice recognition systems that allow the Apple virtual ‘personal assistant’, Siri, to respond intelligently to spoken questions, and send reminders, texts and emails. The latest Android mobile operating system, (Ice Cream Sandwich) now features voice recognition that allows you to dictate emails, and utilises advances in Near Field Communication (NFC) which allow users to share web pages, videos and maps instantly by simply tapping two phones together.
