Small business owners are the world’s greatest multi-taskers so mobile should be making their jobs easier. But though nine out of ten owners say they use mobile devices for business, 58% say they need more than what’s out there.
The stats come from a survey called “Going Mobile: Small Business Owner Attitudes About Mobile Technology” which was conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of New Bank of the West.
The overwhelming majority (76%) of users said they use their mobile devices for communication. After that, everything drops off to under 50% including those who use it for scheduling, driving directions, project management and payments.
