Social media, social networking or the social web, along with companies that deliver all things ‘social’, are dominating discussions about the internet, advertising and communication in business as well as personal life. This appears to be an unstoppable bandwagon that all organisations must leap on before they are left behind; but is it that simple? The social network landscape is packed with choices and pitfalls for the unwary, so a careful, well thought out and appropriately nuanced response is required.
Mobile Expense Management
Managing mobile costs is a challenge for all organisations, especially as responsibilities and budget authority often sit in several places—IT, finance, personnel, managers and, of course, the employees themselves. This situation becomes even more complex and problematic for those organisations that span more than one country or have to use multiple suppliers within one country. Getting to grips with these costs in a way that does not undermine the value of mobile flexibility is paramount, and organisations need to gather sufficient detail to effectively manage and analyse their mobile costs.
