Is Mobile Dependency Good for Business?

Mobile phones have disrupted life and business around the globe.

We’re always connected and always accessible. This new level of connectedness is stirring up lots of debate and conversations around whether or not it’s too much. People argue that this sense of always being connected is ruining the concept of work-life balance; others argue that it’s making organizations more effective. However way you look at it, one thing we can’t deny is that smartphones have changed business forever.

Yet, it’s not just smart phones that are changing business, its also tablets and laptops driving a shift in the way business is done. Business travelers are now able to be effective on their flights, in their hotel rooms and even in the back of a cab.
