Where: The Innovation Centre, Broad Quay, Bath, BA1 1UD

This event has now taken place

Come along and hear from experienced mobile experts who have seen how companies have implemented mobile technology in their business. From Voice and SMS to Native Apps through mobile web come and learn how to engage with your internal and external customers through mobile.

Communication, Data Management and Collaboration are at the core of the enterprise challenge – how can mobile apps deliver effective solutions? Voice and SMS has been used for a long time and with web based API’s for managing workforce or customers through voice and text messaging there has never been a better time to implement mobile services as part of your offering. What about native apps? Aren’t they too expensive and difficult to develop for a workforce that has all different types of phones, some owned by the company, some not? Shouldn’t we be building enterprise apps using web technologies? HTML5 means it will be much cheaper and the service will work on any phone?

With companies like SAP and Oracle taking big steps forward with mobile being added to their platform the next few years are going to be interesting in the mobile enterprise.
