It is Sunday night and Jaimie just visited some friends. On his way home his phone tells him that he has some new requests waiting for him. He checks his requests and sees that his manager approved a quotation. Good news, he can send the quotation to his prospect ‘Durian inc.’ first thing tomorrow.
It is an ongoing trend that private and business live cannot be seen as two separated parts in a day. Business and private life gets more and more integrated. One of the first things when I get out of bed is checking my phone: what’s in my inbox? Later, I check my workflow on my laptop. Also the number of emails that I send at night which are replied per instance increases almost by the week. So, something is changing.
Al the different kinds of communication make it much easier to communicate when you want, how you want and with whom you want. Today, most important communication methods are email, Mobile Phone, Social Media.
Mobile phones are already widely used today, but usage of it will continue to grow big time coming years. It is not new that mobile phones can do much more than only phone calls, but with the introduction of the iPhone the world of mobile phones changed. The mobile phone became easy to use and the number of functionalities on it seems to be endless and is still increasing every day.
Using the mobile phone as platform for a business application is powerful. Combining the functionalities available makes the options unlimited. With Mobile Synergy we start making use of this platform and its possibilities.
Mobile Synergy is build to support Jaimie doing his daily work. Jaimie is account manager, has a Nokia E72, and for him to most important information in Synergy is his workflow and everything related to his accounts. For Jaimie it is important that working on his mobile is simple and only relevant information is shown.
Today Jaimie is working with the Nokia E72, but we are convinced he will start using the iPhone or Android in the near future. Mobile Synergy works on all modern smart phones, touch and non-touch. Yes, also on the iPhone. As a guideline, modern phones are phones manufactures last 18 months.
