Enterprise mobility is an important factor that can help organizations to increase productivity and flexibility in today's business environment. Enterprise mobility helps establish connections with businesses, workplace, and customers without time and location constraints.

Many UC providers and vendors have integrated mobile support and features that enhance the usage of smartphones in UC. For instance, features such as voicemail-to-text, fixed mobile convergence, and mobile presence have been introduced to enhance the communication experience of end-users. Thus, the increasing demand for enterprise mobility is an emerging trend that is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the market during the forecast period.

According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increased need for affordable enterprise communication solutions.
