To many field workers lack access to vital information in the midst of their job. Not having access to vital information in the field impedes responsiveness to customer, supplier, employee or other organization needs. Insurance adjusters for instance can’t adjudicate claims in the field, brokers can’t provide "instant" price quotes based on credit scores, and financial planners can’t view a customer’s portfolio in real time. Service technician’s often lack access to earlier technical maintenance and other vital servicing information that may have been performed earlier etc. Remote reporting of retail inventory can also shorten replenishment. The ability to customize contracts in the field can shorten the sales cycle, and the ability to track logistics in real time enables manufacturers to shift production plans more quickly. Bridging the gap between the field and rest of your organization will shorten, responsiveness and shorten overall business cycles.
