Make sure you fit the profile \nTo date, only companies with a large or mission-critical mobile workforce, or remote manufacturing concerns, have derived a consistent ROI from wireless apps. Niche markets, such as universities and hospitals, have also had success.\nAsk yourself, Do I really need it?\nSimply having a mobile workforce doesn\u2019t guarantee an ROI. Real-time information access has to dramatically help your business. \nKnow what you want to achieve\nCIOs who are clear about the metrics they are trying to improve are in a position to quantify a project\u2019s success.\nTalk to your users\nEquipping workers with wireless devices and providing access to information isn\u2019t enough. The devices and the data exchange must be tested and tailored to fit their needs.\nRemember: Less may be more\nSuccessful wireless projects don\u2019t necessarily need every bell and each whistle. For example, don\u2019t spend a ton to integrate always-connected devices with real-time data exchange when daily syncs will do.
