Fujitsu-Siemens and Intel take their ‘Mobility Tour’ to Jordan to promote mobile solutions in the healthcare and education sectors. Under the patronage of HRH Princess Sumaya Bint-Al-Hassan, Fujitsu Siemens Computers and Intel took their ‘Mobility Tour’ to the Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT) in Jordan to address mobile solutions in healthcare and education. “An increasing number of businesses worldwide are becoming mobile; with the objective of increasing productivity, saving time and motivating employees through mobile computing,” said Christian Bock, Sr. marketing manager, mobility marketing EMEA for Fujitsu-Siemens Computers. “Like many businesses, the rapidly growing education and healthcare sector are no different. Inspite being budget controlled, these establishments are turning towards mobility solutions to drive efficiency and reduce costs.” Bock maintains that today’s education sector faces the challenges of effective learning, student-teacher access to learning documentation, and productivity, with students still being accustomed to using a PC. “Offering mobility solutions to schools and colleges is a means to make learning more effective, and making the most out of teaching staff. By allowing students and teachers to use notebooks and tablet PC’s, we can be assured of higher effectiveness in learning, encourage interactive learning and teaching, and improve overall efficiency.” “Mobility has been developing with a device-centric approach, especially in the handheld market. The challenge for us as an IT vendor is to demonstrate the business advantages, to help in developing an integrated mobility strategy, and take care of user/device/solution acceptance,” Bock concluded.
