Mobile device users (professionals using Smartphone and Tablet) are using their device from different places such as home, office, vehicle and other for their business. A mobile survey firm “harmone.ie” has reportedly stated that 84% of travelling executives and managers are unable to do work effectively with their mobile devices while they are ‘on-the-go’. Indeed, it’s very interesting to know that 56% of executives and mangers use to work on their mobile device from restaurant, while 55% and 45% use their device ‘during air travel’ and ‘in the bed’ respectively.
Despite of increasing penetration of Smartphone and Tablets, 50% (reaching colleague) have difficulties getting input from colleague in a timely manner. While accessing team sites, 41% of executives and managers (respondents) need to work off a copy in order to abstain from risk or issues. Besides, participating in Web/video conference calls, 48% of executives and managers miss their calls because they can’t participate from their mobile devices.
In terms of finding professional colleagues, it’s very tough for 24% (those participated during the survey period) to find colleagues with whom they can exchange questions or discuss about the issue using their Mobile device, while finding colleagues’ phone numbers, 44% of mobile users (executives and mangers) waste their time in tracking colleagues’ phone numbers (generally not listed their Smartphone).
In addition to these, 54% of executives and managers believes their personal productivity has been lowered down by using the mobile device, while 46% say they delay in the projects. On the other sides, 43% and 32% of these professionals have told that they are stuck with ‘information missing from documents’ and ‘making mistakes in the documents’ respectively.
It’s pretty clear from the survey that there are lots of limitations of mobile devices in order to accomplish assigned professional tasks. See the infographic for further details.
