Mobility is one major trend in the industry and also a cornerstone of our Wolters Kluwer strategy. People are using more and more tablets and smartphones, also in their daily professional routine. One recent trend in marketing is to exploit the behavior of people using more than one device at the same time (like a TV and a tablet) for addressing new sales channels, e.g. offering products on the tablet, which are complementing the format the user is currently consuming on TV.
