Why don’t businesses value mobile computing like they value office based computing?

I was chatting with one of our valued partners today, and we got into a very interesting discussion regarding the adoption of field based mobile computing. It appears as if we have both stumbled upon the same problem. The apparent disconnect between automating office based paper processes, and field based paper processes. This discussion really made me think.

“Why don’t businesses value mobile computing like they value office based computing?”

For years companies have been using computers in the office to aid in the functions necessary to run the daily operations of the business.

For Example:

  • Bookkeeping / Accounting
  • AR / AP
  • Payroll
  • E-mail
  • Customer Activity Tracking
  • Sales Performance Tracking
  • Resource Scheduling
  • Creating, assigning, and closing Work Orders
  • Ordering Parts
  • Updating Spreadsheets
  • Etc.
