When Your Information Finds You

No more lugging heavy boxes of files to the car or rifling through stacks of paper looking for the right sheet. No more filling out forms that will still need to be entered into a computer once back at the office. These are just some of the wishes of field-based public safety officers, inspectors, case workers and other government employees that are burdened by paper-based processes. Increasingly, however, these wishes are becoming a priority for government IT departments as they create a roadmap to enable more efficient employee mobility through the adoption of tablets, smartphones, tailored apps and greater access to online content. This Center for Digital Government issue brief offers best practices for creating a productive, streamlined and flexible mobile strategy for your remote employees – enabling them to be just as efficient at their jobs in the field as if they were in the office.
