Mobile Device Considerations for Supply Chain and ERP Related Systems
The increased mobility of users and rapid enhancements to "Hand held" technology suggest leveraging mobile technology to enhance timely transaction handling and data collection, as well as access robust tools for management decision making in supporting Supply Chain Management (SCM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and other complimentary systems.

Not only must internal application requirements address the mobility needs of its users, but interaction with external entities (e.g. suppliers) must be considered, as well.
