  • With 40% of time at work spent on administrative chores, inefficient communication is a big problem in business. Find out how to use tech to reduce wasted time in meetings, spend less time in your inbox and improve the way your company collaborates.

    About the presenter: Ray Gillenwater is the Co-founder and CEO of SpeakUp (getspeakup.com) an Enterprise Collaboration platform that enables collaborative problem solving and ideation. A student of Communications and a former executive at BlackBerry, Ray will share his experience and recommendations to help improve communication at your company.
  • A lot has changed in the way we communicate for business. A decade ago, most organizations had employees who came to the office every day, used desktop computers and desk phones, and stopped communicating for work when they went home.

    Today, people communicate for work anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Per Forrester, sixty-six percent of employees use two or more mobile devices for work. And according to Frost & Sullivan, nearly 25 percent of employees work from home or the road. What’s more, the desk phone is not the only business device. Based on a RingCentral survey, 35 percent of employees are using their mobile phones for work even when they are in the office. And nearly 80 percent of employees text for business, with 32 percent reporting that they’ve even closed a business deal via text.

    Even with these undeniable business behavior changes, the vast majority of companies haven’t optimized their communications infrastructure for mobile workforces or BYOD.

    Join this webinar to get ahead of the pack and learn the benefits of a cloud communications solution that supports the new world of work.

    Abstract:
    The biggest apps and the most successful enterprises do things differently. Mobile marketing automation is how Subway Surfer improves monetization. It's how Starbucks engages deeper with its customers. And it's how Plants vs Zombies gets you back.

    We surveyed 375 mobile developers with over 900 million monthly average users to find the best mobile marketing automation platforms. Then we analyzed 1.8 million apps in Google Play and the iOS app store, conducted 17 live interviews, and surveyed 19 MMA providers.

    The result is the most complete report on mobile marketing automation available.
