In Finance, speed is everything

In today’s modern world speed is everything.  Losing signal to a phone or to the internet simply isn’t an option. There are very few businesses left that don’t rely on either of these two mediums to do business, with the finance world in particular relying on connections to push those split second deals through at the very last minute.

As the business landscape changes and more employees insist / make the move to adopt consumer devices such as iPads and smartphones, it is important that organisations know exactly what they are being used for and how to utilise them to their advantage.

For those in the finance sector looking to adopt a consumer devices, it is vital that the correct business platform is implemented to support the programme being used as a simple loss of connection or a slow financial transaction could cost a company a fortune or even their reputation.

Consumer devices are revolutionising the way many organisations work and whilst they are still maturing to support business needs, they are rapidly filling the shoes of standard desktops with the added benefit of opening the business world up from the hours of 9 to 5.

This means that those last minute deals don’t need to end when the clock reaches five and can be handled whilst on the train home or even whist spending quality time with the children.

Like it or not consumer devices are here to stay and in some form will be impacting the financial sector in some way over the coming 12 months.
