These days, many of us no longer have to get to the office to do productive work, nor put on our best suit, or even leave the house. It makes no difference where we are, or in which time zone. What matters, however, is what we do and how we do it. The what is widely varied and depends on the profession or industry we are working in. The how, surprisingly crosses these differences. Regardless of the type of work activities we engage in, the smartphone, the tablet, and other mobile devices affect us in similar ways as they transform significant parts of our labour environment into a Mobile Workplace.

According to Gartner’s latest report (Nov, 2012), while there is no assumption that mobile devices will replace PCs in the majority of businesses, their analysis showed that by 2016, 66 percent of mobile workers will have a smartphone. In support of this, Carolina Milanesi, Gartner’s smart device analyst, was quoted as saying: “the ubiquity of smartphones and the increasing popularity of tablets are changing the way businesses look at their device strategies.”

Today, most companies not only provide their key employees with mobile devices, but have already adopted and integrated them into their business environment and processes to improve communication and collaboration with their staff, customers, and vendors. A recent Forbes article by Diego Saez-Gil counts six justifications for investing in mobile technology, including: fast transition of customers to mobile use, all day availability, consumers’ emotional attachment, a global tool that expands a business’s market, competitive advantage if implemented fast, and the rationale of early engagement that pays off.

The team at Secured Signing digital signature service envisage this shift and continually develop multiple mobile functions and comprehensive products that allow its worldwide business partners and users to efficiently (no apps to install) fill-in and sign electronic forms from any browser in a smartphone or other tablet device. The advanced electronic signature solution benefits its clients with many operational and financial advantages, including the ability to approve documents or close deals on-the-go in a compliant and secure environment.

And as Bill Gates once said: “We’re changing the world with technology.” We definitely do!

Till next time.

form signing trend

In Gartner’s Symposium at Sao Paulo, Brazil (29-31 October, 2012), Donald Feinberg, Vice President and distinguished analyst was quoted as saying that, “the future of computing is social, mobile, information and cloud, and companies are doing pieces of it correctly today. But the real advantages to the vendors’ side and the consumers’ side, or the corporate side will be when they start bringing these forces together.” (Roberta Prescott) 

This growing business trend sees a large number of companies and government agencies shifting into the electronic completion and digital signing of forms. The latter, which clearly reflects this new nexus of forces, as Feinberg described it, offers secure, efficient, automated, and prompt business methods that save associated costs and workforce resources, and is recognised by international administration’s regulators. 

Secured Signing’s interactive Form solution follows this trend and offers to its worldwide business partners and users tailored and branded forms, inclusion of secure, user-based, PKI digital signatures, conversion to web-based pages, accessibility from any browser in smartphone, other tablet device, Windows PC, or Mac - with no apps to install, and much more.

Yarra Ranges City Council, Evolve Scientific, Digital Mobile Vodafone’s NZ largest dealer, and many others no longer need to print, sign, scan, fax, mail, or deliver documents. Neither do their customers nor business associates who simply fill-in and sign online their designated electronic form.     

And, as Bill Gates once said: “The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don’t really even notice it - so it’s part of everyday life.”    

Till next time,
