Smartphone revolution predicted

Sage chief executive Stephen Kelly has predicted that SME owners will be running their companies from smartphones within three to five years and that wearable technology will become commonplace in small companies. Kelly was speaking at the launch of Sage's new small business software platform, Sage Life, which is designed to deliver real-time information. According to research by PeoplePerHour, two-thirds of business owners already rely on mobile apps. Kelly suggested that wearable devices will be used by companies to communicate 'red flag' events and to monitor employees on the road. He predicted that the SME community would experience more disruptive change over the coming decade than in the past 30 years due to a generational shift as the Millennial generation enters the workplace.
