Smart phones keep getting smarter, tablet computers now run at dizzying speeds, and the Cloud that links them all is seemingly limitless. 83% of Americans currently own a mobile phone and within two years, one-third of all US adults are expected to own a tablet computer.

It allows employees to use their smartphones and tablets to create, open, edit and collaborate on documents, assign and monitor tasks, as well as accomplish many other essential businesses activities all within your organization’s document management system.
