Many aspects of life in the United States—and indeed, much of the rest of the world—are in the process of being revolutionized by mobile technology.
A recent Accounting Today article detailed how an increasing number of people are ascribing to the trend of going mobile for filing taxes, as the process is modern, convenient and easy to carry out. The news source cited a study by OnDevice Research, conducted on behalf of mobile ad network InMobi earlier this year, which found that Americans spend more time on their mobile devices than they do on any other platform. As Fierce Mobile Content reports, nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of survey respondents said they favored mobile's ease of use over other media channels, while more than half (56 percent) indicated that they preferred mobile because they were able to always have their devices with them.
A separate study by the Interactive Advertising Bureau indicated that approximately seven in 10 mobile phone users bring their devices everywhere with them. What's more, numerous other pieces of research have underscored the profound attachment that many cellphone owners feel to their phones, whether they are consumers using mobile apps to play games and compare product prices or professionals tracking time and submitting expenses on the go.How businesses can benefit from mobile technology
Mobile technology is well-positioned to eventually become an integral part of everything from filing taxes to billing and invoicing. Businesses looking to get in on the action can implement mobile time and billing
software, such as Sage Timeslips and the accompanying Sage Timeslips eCenter, to take advantage of capabilities that facilitate mobile employee time tracking
, offer remote project monitoring and make it possible to engage in expense management from out in the field.
While time and billing professionals can work with the software's desktop incarnation, professionals can use Sage Timeslips eCenter to carry out key processes without needing to be in the office or use desktop and laptop computers. Thanks to the mobile revolution, working remotely and on-the-go has become significantly easier—and with the help of products such as Sage Timeslips, invoicing, billing and time and expense tracking can be streamlined as well.
