With more and more people working from remote locations like home offices or hotel rooms while on the road, it has never been more important for workers to stay connected. The mobile workforce continues to rapidly grow with analysts projecting there will be 1.2 billion mobile workers by 2013. When that happens, telecommuters will represent nearly 35 percent of the worldwide workforce. With numbers like that, it’s vital that these employees are able to collaborate in real-time in order to maximize their productivity, regardless of their location.
