Ten Tools and Apps for Mobile Workers
What was once a corporate novelty is now the norm: Mobile knowledge workers account for 70 percent of the total U.S. workforce, according to industry research. And, by 2014, that number will grow to three-fourths of all employees. Realizing this, a host of tech innovators keep coming up with online tools and apps to make it easier for mobile workers to increase efficiencies and otherwise function just as they would in the office. The book, 30 Days to Virtual Productivity Success (Career Press, available now), bills itself as a one-month guide to getting the most out of your time in a global mobile business environment. Author Gail Martin's focus is on small businesses and entrepreneurs, but many of her takeaways provide value for mobile professionals as well. Specifically, the following 10 cyber-tools and apps will help you better manage your documents, track your schedule, learn about your industry niche and even take control of your personal finances. Martin is a marketing expert and owner of Dream Spinner Communications.
