Commodity Management BlogInnovative Ideas and Thought Leadership for Volatile Commodity Marketplace
In just a few years, mobile technology has reshaped the landscape for businesses everywhere. The growing presence of smartphones and tablet devices in the workplace has forced companies to take a sharper look at the benefits mobile applications offer.
Previously, it was impossible for certain jobs to be performed away from a workstation. The mobile revolution has changed those rules. With the arrival of powerful mobile devices and sophisticated mobile applications, it is now possible for employees to perform tasks, previously restricted to their desktops, from any location at any time. And therein lies the value that mobile technology can offer: the ability to untether employees from their workspaces while increasing productivity. For this reason alone, companies are exploring ways to adopt new mobile solutions into their infrastructure in order to maintain an edge over the competition.
Software vendors across all industries are looking for ways to establish themselves in the mobile frontier. The challenge facing these vendors is to find a way to deliver solutions that make sense in a mobile world. The first temptation is to simply repackage existing desktop software and offer it on mobile platforms. This tactic fails, however, to recognize that a mobile solution cannot comfortably accommodate the same movements and actions that might be found in standard computer software. Vendors must accept that the answer lies in preserving functionality while promoting simplicity.
This fundamental concept has helped distinguish the visionaries in mobile technology from the rest of the competition. As software industries saturated with players hum with promises of new mobile initiatives, only a handful of companies actually deliver on such promises. This is especially true of the Commodity Management world. For almost two decades, Triple Point Technology has outpaced its competitors in this industry by producing unmatched Energy and Commodity Trading and Risk Management (CTRM) solutions. When it comes to mobility, Triple Point is the only Commodity Management company today that has managed to bring mobile CTRM products to market. In just under a year, Triple Point has already managed to produce four distinct mobile applications capable of transforming the way companies manage commodities by empowering staff to perform key operations anytime, anywhere.
