Field Technologies Special Edition
Field Technologies Online is a partner of RFID Solutions Online, and it is through our partnership that we’re sending you this annual newsletter from Field Technologies Online with information relevant to optimizing the mobile workforce in your industry. If your business is like many others, your mobile workforce is going to continue to expand. By the end of 2013, IDC expects the total number of mobile workers will grow to nearly 1.2 billion — more than one third of the world’s workforce. Unlike workers within your four walls, these mobile workers — and the tools and data they carry with them — are significantly more challenging to control. How do you not only manage these mobile assets, but also maximize them? That’s where Field Technologies Online can help.
