A mobile workforce is often in the field providing service to a customer on-site, and they can be delivering, installing, or maintaining a product or service.

Having a team off-site could mean that you lack visibility for proper management of the workload. MWM allows you to bridge the commu­nic­ation and visibility gap between on-site and mobile teams, allowing your leaders to easily communicate with the entire mobile workforce or specific individuals.

Mobile workforce management solutions have been found to help mobile workers feel connected and part of a team, keeping them engaged and motivated to deliver great customer experience.
