While the definition has changed during the COVID-19 pandemic, the mobile workforce is a bigger phenomenon than ever. Widespread work-from-home has turned a huge number of workers into mobile workers—even if their notion of mobility is more about working in different parts of the house rather than different parts of the world.
Nevertheless, the shift to work-from-home has created surging demand for mobility-focused products. And solution providers have been critical to the rollout of the mobile solutions, equipping customers with portable devices such as laptops and 2-in-1 tablets, mobile security and device management solutions, and collaboration apps that can be used from any device.
Even though the return to the office is likely to increase in coming months, many workers are expected to continue working from home at least part of the time—creating an ongoing opportunity around enabling the “hybrid” workforce.
For solution providers, finding top products across hardware, software and security is key. Choices abound, however. So with all of the options available, we’ve narrowed the field to some of the top offerings worth considering for enabling a robust mobile and remote work strategy.
