The Institute of Directors (IoD), in association with Vodafone UK, has launched a new business guide to mobile working.
Endorsed by the Minister of State for Energy and ECommerce, Mike O'Brien, the guidebook is designed to provide practical advice to enable UK businesses to reap the benefits of mobile technology and provide them with a competitive edge.
Each chapter gives examples about how to save time and money using mobile solutions.
Mr O'Brien, said: "I welcome the initiative taken by the IoD and Vodafone UK to produce a practical guide to help businesses choose and use mobile technologies that can enable them to work better and smarter.
"It makes sense to develop a clear and flexible strategy on mobile working and to consider the business benefits your organisation can expect to gain from mobile solutions."
Bill Morrow, chief executive, Vodafone UK, added: "In today's business environment there are few excuses for a slow response to enquiries, neglected opportunities or missed deadlines.
"This guidebook provides clear information on how to run your company more effectively using mobile technology, without distracting you from your primary objective --running your business."
