New WashingtonExec Series:
WashingtonExec reached out to executives in the community for their insights on issues concerning the mobility industry. Can mobility remain cost effective while being efficient, and how does it reduce cost for clients?
Our third participant is Jeremy Wensinger, Chief Operating Officer over at GTSI, a leading hub of information technology in delivering solutions and services.
Mobility has the potential to be a force multiplier on efficiency. Mobility can drive down cost, but it also can increase efficiencies across the enterprise. Of all the ways mobility reduces cost and increases efficiency, I believe the top three are:
1. Better Decision Making: Providing decision makers with timely information, regardless of location is the fundamental benefit to mobility.
2. Enhanced Productivity: Mobility provides the user the ability to continuously reorganize and reprioritize work to meet organizational objectives. The user is continuously receiving enhanced information regardless of location, which enables them to make better decisions and increase productivity.
3. Reduced Cost: Productivity gains are not always easily measured and captured. However, cost reductions achieved through the implementation of a mobility strategy are very tangible and come in the form of reduced facilities cost, reduced travel cost, labor savings due to lower administrative support costs, and higher talent retention rates which reduces recruiting costs while increasing retained talent organizational knowledge.
