Definition - What does Telecommuting mean?
Techopedia explains Telecommuting
The global Internet facilitates the lion’s share of telecommuting processes. Today's office workers can take orders, tabulate spreadsheets, write articles, analyze digital media results, build reports and even attend meetings online. This capability has revolutionized many industries, from journalism and education to manufacturing and sales. What all of these have in common is that combinations of wireless and networking infrastructures are allowing people to do their jobs from wherever they happen to be. With mobile devices, a new factor has been added to telecommuting, where individuals can participate in their job roles "in the field," while moving around, using the portable data computing and voice connections that smartphones provide.
