Does your business have a strategy for mobile collaboration, or maybe you're about to create one? Are you looking to select a new suite of collaboration tools to support mobile working... or maybe you're in the midst of a roll-out and have something to say about the tools you already use?

We've put together the following very short survey, which explores what’s actually important to businesses in terms of the focus, scope and technology options related to mobile collaboration. If you’d like, we’ll provide you with a copy of the full survey report once it’s complete – before we share it with anyone else. All you have to do is provide your contact information at the end of the survey and request the report.

Thanks very much in advance, and we hope to share the findings with you soon!
