Smart Work Accelerator, also known as SWA, is a versatile horizontal platform SaaS[1]model that allows companies and businesses to completely reimagine and reinvent their work style through cutting-edge technology medium like mobile, wearables, and other connected devices. It encourages all people working in an office, on-site, or remotely, to invent new ways of working through technology like mobile devices. It helps workers initiate voluntary actions, increases work productivity, and reduces time wasted by eliminating non-essential tasks. In addition, by collecting work related activity data automatically, SWA can be used to accurately grasp current work situations, thereby allowing businesses to re-assess how workers operate.

Characteristics of Smart Work Accelerator

Smart Work Accelerator places its roots in the Smart Working philosophy [2], where the vision is to put an end to wasteful practices at work. This includes but not limited to collaborative working, technology use, management by result, and employee empowerment. [3]

Smart Work Accelerator acts as the specific method to realizing the Smart Work philosophy. In implementing new ways of working, mobile technology becomes imperative to successfully materialize. Whereas laptops once replaced desktop computers to advance new ways of working, mobile devices, especially smartphones like the iOS and Android are increasingly becoming the defacto standard of people working outside the office [4].
