In the past few years mobile technology has changed the way business is conducted.  From the use of PDAs and other handheld devices, such as the Blackberry, for email and calendar functions, the business world has adopted this technology quicker than usual.  Many companies now equip staff with smartphones, tablets and an arsenal of applications and software to interpret data and do business on the move.

Flexible working and increased productivity are the major benefits of mobile technology enabling you to work in real-time, make timely decisions and take immediate action.  Surveys have shown that a more flexible way of working using mobile technologies directly results in business cost savings.

With the general public now expecting to have access to information online and on a mobile device, it is imperative that Government embraces such technologies in order to meet the expectations of the public that they serve and to provide the levels of service that are now expected.
