Are you a mobile superhero in the workplace?

The workplace is quickly being infiltrated by a new breed of mobile superhero — elite workers who rely on and use mobile apps to increase productivity. These men and women have superpowers that soar past anything the Justice League could drum up. This super-connected workforce has the ability to channel the data and apps that smartphones provide, and have made businesses stronger than ever.

The mobile elite also drive innovation within their companies, compelling their co-workers to accept change through the power of tech.
