A “mobile moment” is when someone texts, opens an app, or uses their mobile. Each mobile moment allows a business to engage with its users and build their custom mobile strategy.
Identifying and working on mobile moments is the starting point for creating mobile apps and implementing an enterprise-wide mobile strategy. Mobile moments highlight touchpoints as opportunities to consider while making a workflow.
For instance, when building a workflow automation App for your field staff, the touchpoints will cover customer data capturing, inventory access, expense reporting, and data access to the CRM system. An ideal mobility solution considers all these touchpoints and converges data from multiple sources into a single app, enabling easy access for the end user. Features like multimedia and mobile sensors add further value to your mobility app.
Approaches to Enterprise Mobility Strategy
There are two strategies to build mobility for your business.
The first is identifying processes with multiple touchpoints by different users and converging as needed. The second is to act on those with delays or longer wait times for a user action and start building applications to address them. If your enterprise is already mobile, you can start by optimizing and refining the current processes for mobile deployment.
