Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Increasingly, we're hearing about apps being launched for every aspect of business life. Indeed, this week's newsletter includes coverage of Palletforce's new live tracking application.
The rise of the app is not just about accessibility of programming technology, it's also about adoption of smartphones - and their increasingly capability.
