EPAY System Inc. (U.S.), a leading American company in providing unified human capital management, says that by 2020 in U.S., the number of mobile workers will increase to 105 million. Falling prices of smart phones and tablets, growth of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) trend in work place, latest innovations in computing and mobile broadband technology are the key drivers for the growth of mobile workforce management market. As mobile ownership is increasing, more companies are adopting BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies which has many advantages like employees can use devices they are familiar with and work flexible hours which increases productivity and companies can save the cost on hardware.
