The smartphone revolution has been rolling forward now for over four years.  It’s hard to believe that what began as a few apps on one platform has bloomed to upwards of 2 million apps on multiple platforms.

One of the more exciting trends I see that is not talked about much is the development of mobile applications to be used for productivity within a corporation. 

The use of smartphone technology can give your sales force or field staff access to critical information that might not have been available before.  Accounting information, customer orders, current inventory, shipping, receiving, sales tracking and much more can be custom programmed to provide the most updated information for your employees around the globe. 

Accella, LLC has developed several internal corporate apps to improve productivity.  We can customize the application to suit most any requirement.  Please contact us if your interested in finding out more!
