Abstract

This paper investigates and implicates how organisations renovate their service operations and improve business productivity in the context of wireless networks and mobile technologies. Drawing from two case studies conducted in healthcare institutions situated in southwest USA, the findings suggested that wireless networks and relevant technologies evidently enhanced business productivity
and fundamentally changed service provision and, in turn, shaped or reshaped organisational images in the community. The implications reinforced the notions that technology could provide foundation for an organisation’s economic growth and that organisations’ business and IT strategies need to seriously consider aligning with this technological trend. For researchers, how organisations in different industries manoeuvre their ways around these technologies might provide interesting venues for future investigation.
