Business technology has become a bit of a maze, with so many considerations and options available that it’s very easy for a small business to become lost. And with more workers hoping to embrace mobile technology, a common question is, “Where do I start?”

Modern business doesn’t stand still. You’re constantly moving – going places, meeting people – and that means your work should travel with you.

Whether you’re checking email on the morning commute or finalising contracts in a client meeting across town, modern business is about being connected in as many places as possible – without compromising the quality of your work or the limits of your access.

The benefits of mobile business are many. Maybe your team is more productive when on the road and not constantly returning to the office to complete their admin or attend internal meetings. Maybe you need to stay on top of the business’s day-to-day activities, even when you’re intercity, interstate or even international. Or maybe you simply like the freedom to work from coffee shops and co-working spaces, wherever is comfortable and convenient.
