Enterprises with heavy mobile use are more profitable
There’s a new research report that says companies whose employees use mobile devices for multiple things are more productive than those with limited usage. It was commissioned by Synchronoss and conducted by Sapio Research.
The report says that 38 percent of enterprises use mobility solutions for basic tools like email and calendar. Such enterprises are 15 percent less productive and almost a third (29 percent) less profitable than those with more advanced mobile capabilities.
Those capabilities include file sharing, data analytics, app integrations and multi-factor authentication.
It was also said that these companies don’t have a firm requirement to secure their staff’s devices, increasing risks. Another interesting finding is that even though enterprise mobility is perceived as an accepted norm, 38 percent never progress beyond the first, entry level stage. More than four fifths (81 percent) remain in the bottom half.
"The findings of this study underline the case for companies to dedicate investment to their enterprise mobility strategy. Until now, the benefits of mobility maturity have been anecdotal or theoretical. We now know that those who invest in advanced mobility tools -- balancing efficiency with security -- benefit from double-figure improvements in productivity, in turn contributing to massive profitability gains," says Dave Schuette, executive vice president of the Enterprise Business Unit at Synchronoss.
