Here are 10 that we think can have higher workplace productivity if they implement workplace mobility strategies
“There’s an app for that.” Apple’s 2009 tagline is even more relevant today. Smartphone usage has risen since then, with over three quarters of Americans reporting that they own one of these hand-held miracles of innovation in a 2017 survey. Consumers are using smartphones to order food, access their financial records, find a ride home, and more. But what about businesses? As smartphones continue to do more, what industries can benefit most from ditching the monitor for a mobile device?
Cloud-based technology like Cloud Contact Center means that a company’s agents can service the clientele regardless of their geographic location without being constrained to a physical office or specialized hardware.
As a global app developer with a focus on workplace efficiency, we found that the most likely beneficiaries of the “BYOD” (bring your own device) trend are industries that get bombarded with paperwork and need more effective document management systems. They also have on-the-job responsibilities that require immediate attention.

More, more, more!
This seems to have been the slogan of companies and digital content creators in recent years.
In an era that’s becoming increasingly competitive and concerned about excess, the idea of “more and more,” as it relates to creating content, should be replaced with “more…but better.”
Why is it so important that companies learn how to create better content? According to SOURCE:
- 80% of users who can’t find a particular piece of product information will abandon their shopping cart
- 87% of shoppers will never return to an online store displaying poor content
- Another 87% of users do not trust brands that provide only a little information
Content consistently proves itself to be one of the most important factors for brands and companies positioning themselves in the online (and offline) market by boosting their visibility, popularity, and trustworthiness.

November is one of our favorite times of the year at Kdan. It’s a month-long celebration of entrepreneurship, that culminates with #globalentrepreneurshipweek from Monday the 18th to Friday the 22nd.
Our U.S. Team had a unique opportunity to partner with two organizations that are dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship, the Juniata Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (JCEL) and Startup Alleghenies, to host a mini-series of events this month that share experiences and start conversations about starting a business. It was useful to learn about some top LLC companies and the best LLC services that will help with starting a business as well.
One of the big ideas discussed in both events is that you don’t have to be self-employed to be considered “entrepreneurial.” Intrapreneurs, or entrepreneurial people within an organization, are valuable assets to any team. We want to share some highlights from the two sessions and how these concepts relate to your career path, whether it’s for your own company or the one you’re working for!
