CEO Insight – Can you run your enterprise application on the IPad?
Imagine this scenario: It’s been a hectic day, it’s late and you left the office a while back heading home but you are still stuck in traffic. Your cell phone beeps and you take a look, its’ a flash message from your enterprise application. One of your account officers in the Abuja branch is with a VIP in his office and she needs a senior manager approval to authorize a transaction for a VIP customer. The customer Chief XYZ is one of your biggest HNIs (highest networth individuals) and you can’t afford to disappoint. You ask your driver to turn around and head back to the office but this is Lagos and you realize you probably won’t be able to get to your office for at least an hour. What to do, you simply can’t afford to disappoint Chief XYZ and have him entertain the thought of moving to your competition.
Ah ha!! You wipe out your IPad, launch your enterprise application, swipe your way to the approval module and immediately approve the transaction and send a notification to the Abuja account officer. The account officer is able to complete the transaction and sends Chief XYX on his merry way. As you sink back into your seat relieved you don’t have to fight the traffic back to your office, your phone rings and it’s Chief XYZ. He’s calling to compliment you on the great service he just received from your Abuja Account officer despite not having a senior manager around. He jokingly tells you he wants to know the secret technology sauce that makes your people so efficient even on the go without a laptop and with only just an IPad. And on a serious note, he tells you that you will be getting more of his business. As you put the phone down, you smile to yourself, not a bad way to end the day. If only Lagos traffic could be half as efficient as your enterprise software. Oh well!
