DURHAM, NC--(Marketwired - May 3, 2016) - Mi-Corporation, the award-winning mobile information company, welcomed leaders from the mobile technology industry to the Durham Convention Center April 13-14 for the company's annual Mobility Summit. Mobility Summit is an educational forum which provides organizations an opportunity to learn about the latest trends in mobile and related technologies as well as share how mobility solutions are transforming the way companies do business.

The event provided vendor exhibits, informative educational opportunities, hands-on workshops and vibrant networking for attendees to share best practices. Key sessions included how to use mobile software and hardware to reduce human error, comply with government regulations, streamline logistics, and increase productivity and efficiency.

"Mobile devices are the preferred platform for collecting, analyzing, and sharing data within an enterprise environment," said Greg Clary, Mi-Corporation CEO and Founder, adding, "User demand for secure, real-time and error-free data is leading to a constant evolution of mobile forms and mobile app technology. Bringing organizations together to discuss best practices and share experiences has proven greatly beneficial for the companies that attend the Mi-Corporation Mobility Summit."

Highlights of the event included examinations of successful mobility use cases; an interactive paper prototyping workshop; a mobility expert panel; presentations on enterprise mobility security; and a luncheon keynote speech by Eric Ellis, Chief Technology and Innovation Officer, State of North Carolina. Ellis' presentation spoke to his vision for mobile and related technologies and how the State could enhance many of their current processes and provide exciting interactive opportunities for its constituents. North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources holds a special place in Mr. Ellis' heart, and he shared exciting potential uses of mobile technology for North Carolina parks and museums.
