Mobile technology is everywhere! As customers and businesses move faster and faster, apps and software that can travel with your sales team or around your facility are logical choices to help you keep up. You may be reluctant to embrace these new systems, but don’t despair! We’ll explain five ways mobile technology will propel your business to the next level.
Reach More Customers Faster with a Mobile Responsive Website
Today’s customer is always on their phone – checking email, updating social media, playing games, etc. You’ll want to ensure your business information is easily accessible in this format, which means making sure your website adapts to fit smaller screens. This is called “responsive design” and allows your website content to show up in a clear, professional manner no matter what device your customer is using. Depending on how your website is built, you may be able to do this yourself, or you may want to consider hiring a web developer.
Stay Organized with Mobile Apps
Say goodbye to your trusty desk blotter calendar and sticky notes plastered everywhere! Your phone can serve as your own personal assistant in many ways. Stay in touch with your team on the go via HipChat and Slack, manage your customer data with Apptivo, and track employee time and expenses with ClickTime. This is just the beginning! The beauty of mobile technology is that it’s getting better every day. If you can’t find an app that does exactly what you want, someone is almost certainly already working on one.
Make Your Customers’ Days with Mobile Payments
Welcome to a new era of convenience and speed – mobile and online payments. Paper transactions waste time and resources, but luckily there are alternatives. Everything from receipts to invoices can be emailed to the customer, stored digitally, and managed electronically. Add an online payment option to your website or mobile app and watch your revenue increase as your costs drop. Your customers will thank you!
Take Sales to the Next Level with Mobile POS Systems
Your sales team rocks – you already know that. Imagine how much better they could be if you equipped them with the tools they really need to succeed!

Get Connected with Video Apps
You can take advantage of the fact that your customers seem glued to their phones by harnessing the power of video messaging. Start a YouTube channel, open a Snapchat account, or add a live video chat feature to your website. Have some fun with your team showing off your unique style and post the finished products to your social media accounts (check out a few examples of videos we’ve made here and here). Make sure to respond to any comments, too! Customers love engaged brands.
