Durable and circular for more a sustainable mobile device strategy

Consumerisation of mobile technology has had many benefits. It has driven down the prices of devices, improved the user experience to the benefit of non-technical users. Plus, awareness and crucially acceptance, of mobile devices, has soared. All of this might seem good for the business, but there is a significant drawback. Consumer attitudes to technology can lead to a throwaway culture, with the obvious impact on wastage. This is not sustainable.

Mobile devices at work – a more sustainable approach

Mobile devices put access to IT right into the hands of people while they are out and about performing their work tasks. For many this is not just about ‘being in touch’ or getting access to useful data. IT tasks performed using the mobile device are critical to the business process.

These tasks could include a courier getting delivery jobs or the recipient’s signature or a railway guard checking and selling tickets. It might involve an engineer in the field performing maintenance, identifying failure and scheduling spare parts. Or it might be a retail worker checking stock and inventory. In each case, the mobile worker is reliant on the technology.
