As wireless connectivity options and solutions creep ever deeper into the enterprise, equipping the workforce with the technology they need is becoming ever more critical to competitive success.
To help enable smart mobility decisions, the Enterprise Mobility Exchange Network recently surveyed their global network of mobility practitioners on what they consider to be the key drivers behind their mobile investments.
The results, published in the infographic below, provide "fascinating insight into the reasons why enterprises are investing in more technology as well as some compelling calls to action for all solution providers out there looking to help these companies deliver best-in-breed workforce productivity, customer service and operational efficiency," noted Julia Mansell, head of production at the Exchange.
Key takeaways from the survey include:
- 76% of enterprise mobility practitioners highlight cost as the most significant barrier to investment in new solutions.
- 86% of practitioners value product demos above all when selecting a new solution provider.
- 38% of respondents report that improving workforce productivity is the main driver behind their mobility initiatives.
