Now that smart phones are being used by professionals in fields ranging from field service to customer care, evaluating and selecting the optimal device for business has become much more challenging. Once, companies could base their selections on coverage maps, rate plans and the look and feel of the phones themselves; now, there are even more factors to consider, such as:
- Device life cycles
- Available enterprise software
- Support for bar code scanning
- And much more
Read this white paper for an in-depth look at which smart phone features make work easier for users in emerging enterprise applications and why ruggedness is a requirement.
