Why Does Your Resource Management Have to Go Mobile?
Categories: Resource PlanningIt’s estimated that, by 2013, more than 11 million people will use their smartphones and tablets to manage their business assets remotely. Specifically, they’ll use some kind of special mobile resource management app. Here's why you should join them...
- Because people expect instant results
So, whether it’s a quick answer to a question or some kind of easy way to look up complicated data, your clients expect the same thing from you. You may not always have time to head back into the office and do the work by hand.
Instead, people are expecting you to be “dialed in” on your smartphone, whether you’re out to lunch or riding the train in to work. If you make your clients wait longer than they feel is appropriate, they may view you as “lacking” customer service. That means you need to have all of your resources streamlined into a handheld format.
- Because it improves your bottom line
If you have this ability to be connected 24/7, you might as well make the most out of it! (Gives a whole new meaning to the term “time is money”, huh?)
- Because it helps you keep track of your employees
- Because it leaves a “digital trail”
The only difference is that mobile resource management is a lot easier to update. Since everything is sent to everyone’s mobile devices, you never have to worry about anyone being out of the loop.
And since your Ganttic account can be synced directly with your Google Calendar, you can always be certain you'll receive important notifications directly to your mobile devices for so you don't miss an important task. Ganttic and Google calendar can be updated automatically so you keep important tasks in both places.
