ARC Going Mobile

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada ARC Business Solutions Inc. (ARC) is excited to announce a new line of business specifically focused on mobile ‘business’ solutions. Andrew Smith, Director of Strategic Initiatives, envisions solutions that: “… enables executives and employees to complete business tasks and review timely information while on-the-go in a boardroom, at a worksite, or around the world. You can take your business with you on a tablet and have the important changes you seek and need for effective business decisions/actions. Envision an iPad with your daily folder updates throughout the day, your schedule is front and center; quick access to email inbox, offline access to web content; sign and submit documents with your finger; review or annotate PDF documents stored in SharePoint; locate your peers and your corporate locations anytime; and assure that your IT folks approve the software that’s running under the hood – both from a technology stack and security viewpoint”.
