Mobility and Flexibility:
The influx of smartphones and tablets as tools of the workplace has solved many of the communication issues that used to plague businesses just 20 years ago. Now, your staff carries the office, virtually all the important information, and direct contact with colleagues with them everywhere and can almost fully operate everywhere.
