The market research firm IDC predicts that the population of remote workers in the US will grow from over 96 million in 2015 to 105.4 million by 2020. In that same year, IDC forecasts that mobile workers will make up nearly three-quarters of the American workforce.
Key drivers behind the growth in the U.S. mobile worker population and elsewhere in the world, include the increasing affordability of smartphones and tablets combined with the growing acceptance of corporate bring your own device (BYOD) programs.
Mobile devices allow employees to communicate quickly and without barriers, which increases productivity.
Technology Service Providers have been slow to pick up on mobile-first UC clients and as a result, remote workers miss out on the UC experience that their on-premise colleagues may already have.
Mobile UC presents an opportunity for service providers to help their customers improve their collaboration capabilities and if they are not offering it, they need to jump on the wagon fast as clients are starting to look for solutions themselves and may end up moving all their telephony to another provider.
'RIPDialer' developed by London based software house RIPTec Ltd, has been developed as a primary mobile communications tool working over the Mobile GSM network with WiFi/Data working as a fail-over. It is a low cost fully brandable 'White Label' solution available for MNO's, MVNO's, Telcos and VAR's operating around the world.

RIPDialer is fast to implement, highly scalable and incredibly robust in operation and already enjoying high growth in various parts of the world.
