PA’s Ted Bissell, a mobile business expert, is quoted in an article in the Financial Times on the changing role of electronic devices in the work place. Although personal smartphones and tablets are convenient, people often need business PCs to access corporate applications and data. The article looks at how manufacturers are beginning to develop hybrids that aim to combine the convenience of personal devices with the functionality of corporate PCs.

Ted talks about how Global Positioning System (GPS) technology is being exploited by manufacturers to make devices more enterprise friendly. He talks about how an investment bank can use GPS to ensure corporate treasurer clients are located with their phones somewhere they are expected to be to authorise a large funds transfer.

Ted also goes on to talk about near-field communications (NFC). This is the technology used for contactless travel cards and mobile payments. Ted points out that this also has corporate applications: “It could turn tablets and smartphones into electronic keys to get people in and out of buildings, or activate control consoles on equipment they are allowed to operate.”
