The new touch-enabled, intuitive user interface (UI) is designed from the ground up to work with touch screen devices -- empowering users to work the way they want.

Social ERP Drives User-Centric Business Innovation
According to a recent report by Forrester Research, Inc., "Both customers and employees now expect that information, services, and social media will be available to them -- in context -- on any device, at their time of need. And business leaders are taking note: Today, 77% of business decision-makers believe that creating a comprehensive mobile and tablet strategy for customers and partners is a moderate, high, or critical priority for their company."(1)
