The workplace is changing. Gone are the days when people in your organization needed only a computer and a desk to do their jobs. Now, they may need that computer, but they don't always need that desk. Instead, they need smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices that help them perform the day's tasks wherever they are. This is particularly the case for small businesses, according to a study from wireless carrier AT&T. The Small Business Technology Poll, which surveyed 2,000 respondents, reveals how small business are making use of smartphone apps. While some organizations are readily embracing cloud-based and software-as-a-service mobile solutions, an equal number admit to having "no idea" what such solutions are all about. Guess which mobile app is most popular among small business users? Hint: It will get you where you need to go.
