The Changing World of Work
The statistics don’t lie. The nature of work is dramatically changing as mobility and the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend continues to gain traction.
A few telling numbers show a work world in the process of radical alteration.
- 13.4 million people now work from home.
- Mobile Internet use will overtake desktop use by 2014.
- Enterprise tablet adoption will grow by almost 50 percent per year.
What we can say from these stats is that the mobility trend will continue on its upward trajectory and businesses will make significant adjustments to keep pace.
ShoreTel is meeting this challenge with a series of recent initiatives. With the ShoreTel Dock, released in May, workers can turn their Apple and Android devices, running the ShoreTel Mobility app, into business desk phones and enterprise collaboration tools.
And in July, ShoreTel launched Mobility 7, software to enhance UC capabilities with a redesigned user interface and simplified integration for iPhone and Android users.
