The biggest change I've seen is the demand for agility in the delivery of technology.

The 'digital screwdriver' or what MIT calls their Reality Editor app. This has been developed at MIT. Very exciting.

6. How has mobile technology improved business for you and/or your customers?

Significantly. We now have Mobile Technology in use across the whole organization. One example is the use of eForms. We've saved over 15000 person hours on a few business processes (Train / station inspections) in the last year alone.

Mobile Technology has allowed TfL to transform the Underground Station Operating model, closing ticker offices and improving customer service and saving millions in cost as well as generating revenue from the former ticket office spaces.

Mobile devices are becoming the preferred platform for collecting, analyzing, and sharing data within an enterprise environment," said Greg Clary, Mi-Corporation CEO & Founder, adding, "User demand for secure, real-time & error-free data is leading to a constant evolution in mobile forms & mobile app technology. Bringing organizations together to discuss best practices & share experiences has proven greatly beneficial for the companies that attend the Mi-Corporation Mobility Summit.

Mi-Corporation has continually shared its mobile data expertise gained in serving clients over the past 16 years -- as well as its intellectual leadership garnered through the development of 10 issued U.S. patents -- via participation in national industry events; webinars; and the company’s Mobility Summit.

The Summit provides businesses/agencies interested in saving time and money, and improving workforce efficiency using mobile technology solutions with an opportunity to hear from industry experts and similar organizations about best practices for transitioning to mobile, maximizing user adoption in replacing clipboard technology, as well as learning about the latest mobile technologies and devices. Mobility Summit features educational presentations from mobility experts, end user organizations, and Mi-Corporation team members, as well as vendor exhibits, technology demonstrations, and interactive workshops.
