The workplace has gone mobile. A recent report found that 56% of the global workforce is now using a mobile device for business messaging. As a result, mobile messaging continues to increase and is now the most dominant communication platform. The integration of voice and video into messaging communication is elevating user experience, making it more instantaneous, contextual and continuous. This enhanced user experience coupled with new remote working norms is fueling adoption of mobile messaging, which, in turn, is helping enterprises drive productivity gains, enhance collaboration, improve efficiency and strengthen employee engagement.
Working paradigms are increasingly shifting to a more distributed workforce. COVID-19 has rapidly accelerated this shift which has been on the upswing for the last 15 years. According to Flexjobs, remote working has increased 159% since 2005. And it looks like the distributed workforce is here to stay. A Nemertes survey of more than 450 organizations found that 71% expect to continue to allow employees to work remotely, even after the pandemic is over or work restrictions ease.
As working paradigms increasingly shift to a more distributed workforce, company-wide, secure mobile messaging platforms that unify text, voice and video are essential to effectively supporting a remote workforce.
