Technological advancements in mobile computing and wireless networks open up to new applications and new user-groups in the mobile workforce However, a considerable part of the mobile workforce, such as e g drivers or healthcare staff, is chiefly performing other tasks than interacting with their computers As a result. they are not able to pay attention to computer interaction, making them mainly off computer tasks The aim of the paper is to develop a design theory to manage off-task situations in mobile computing Interviews were performed with developers of an information system comprising mobile devices for drivers From the interviews, a design of an artifact and a design theory based on a strategy to automate routine administration task using place awareness is presented The eight components of IS design theory by Gregor and Jones is applied as a theoretical framework
