Increasingly, more and more workers are relying primarily on their mobile devices to complete their jobs.
With the global mobile workforce expected to increase from 38.8% to 42.5% or 1.87 billion people by 2022, according to RCR Wireless, organizations are moving to the cloud; with engineering document management systems that ensure access to their data at any time, not just when employees are in the office.
Utilizing the functionality of a mobile application allows employees to overcome crunch-time scenarios in their work worlds. We've all experienced this scenario before: it's 4:00 pm and an employee is nowhere near the office, but they must add critical comments to a document before a 5:00 pm deadline to ensure that a contractor can access it in the morning. The deadline is non-negotiable and if not met, the project will be delayed.
Alternatively, an employee is at an off-site meeting all day without access to their computer. A co-worker calls for approval to changes within a document. The updated document must be shared with maintenance in order to complete three important work orders. Without access to the engineering document management functionality via their phone, they must wait until they can access their computer to approve the changes, creating a backlog of work for maintenance.
Both these scenarios are frustrating, but both can be avoided with a mobile document management system in place.
