IBF say “BT’s intranet is designed to support mobile workers so it is fully accessible from mobile devices. Mobile users use a text-based interface.”
People in BT can use a variety of mobile devices – Blackberrys, iPhones, mobiles with media capability – on our intranet to:
- Access all content needed for their work
- Some applications like Directory can be used with more applications being enabled
- Listen to podcasts
- Collaborate on our corporate wiki
- Post on your blog.
This helps improve productivity while people are travelling or just in a different workplace for a while. It cuts down on that ‘dead time’ while on a train for example. It also encourages a culture of working remotely from your main place of work when needed.
Here are some examples of best practice showing what the content and applications look like with full and PDA – text only - versions for you to compare.
