The mobile workforce that is empowered with simple solutions to capture and report on business critical data stays ahead of the competition. It is estimated that by 2015, the world's mobile worker population will reach 1.3 billion, representing 37.2% of the total workforce.IDC estimates that by 2015, the world's mobile worker population will reach 1.3 billion, representing 37.2% of the total workforce.1
 
Does your PSA platform address the needs of your growing mobile workforce and is it keeping pace with their needs?
 
More and more services, product management and IT professionals rely on mobile solutions to remain connected to their enterprise applications – where they want and when they want. Through the use of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets users have on-demand access to the data, tasks, and approval rights for which they are responsible.
 
Mobile consultants who track expenses typically want immediate interaction to enter expense information when expenses are incurred. This means that finance departments are no longer waiting days or weeks for project financial data speeding up the order-to-cash cycle.

A Framework for Customer Lifecycle Management

Changepoint’s mobile solution provides similar functionality, ensuring that remote resources are able to collect, approve and report on the information and responsibilities for which they are accountable.

Flexible Connectivity

As more and more organizations are moving to a “BYOD to work” approach Changepoint relies on the power of web browser technology to enable connectivity and does not require the installation of a native application. Changepoint users seeking mobile access can use multiple devices, including personal hardware, to remain connected to the data, tools, and processes they require to carry out their duties.
