The growth of mobile networks, the internet of things, and overall dependence on smartphones for commerce has increased the complexity of data plans, the need for more flexibility, and the pressure on companies to manage a wide-reaching network. Even though mobile is nearly ubiquitous across the business world, its importance is still growing.
Here are mobile statistics that your company can’t ignore.
Daily usage: 174 minutes
Yes, that figure is right. According to a major study, the average person spends nearly three hours on their mobile device each day. This figure has increased substantially in the past few years, and is still growing. Your employees are probably above average in their usage, especially if their jobs are on the go. That means a lot of minutes, and a lot of business and personal usage that needs to be tracked.
60% use more than 2 devices
More than 60% of adults who are online use 2 devices or more in a single day, and nearly 25% use 3. And many more actually start certain processes on one device and finish on another. Your workforce is becoming savvier by the minute, and their dependence on mobile will only continue to affect how your business is done.
62% of millennials check their phones 30 times per day
Think about it. It is normal for millennials to check their phones more than once per hour, sometimes up to 30 times a day or more. And four out of five admit they always have their phones with them. As a company, you will need to accommodate this demographic, since they will soon make up a large part of the tech-savvy workforce.
The importance of mobile can’t be overstated, and with the rise in usage, diversification of devices, and increasing reliance on constant mobile connection, your company needs to adapt its mobile network to meet a new business world. These mobile statistics cannot be ignored. Simplex Mobility is here to help your company take the 21st century business world head on and ensure you’re getting the most out of your mobile network.
