Small Businesses are digging the tablets, that’s not news these days but what I read this morning is. I got this from a post Gary Kim who wrote about a study AT&T sponsored. These numbers actually surprised me, I’m glad to see tablets catching on in small businesses so quickly.
- 43% of small businesses surveyed report ALL of their employees use wireless devices of some sort to facilitate working outside of the office.
Here’s the kicker and the number I was so happy to see…
- 67% of small businesses use tablets. That’s up 10% from last year.
This is huge, that means that it shouldn’t surprise anybody to see a plant manager or IT directors walking around with a tablet. I know I walk around my home office and my clients office all the time with my iPad. I have nearly everything I need to answer their questions or participate in a meeting. From my email, IM, documents and my work phone it’s all in my tablet. The future is upon us.
