People are finding new ways to take advantage of mobile technology seemingly every day – whether that’s through their phones, tablet and now watches. You can even adjust the heat or air conditioning of your home using a mobile device at this point.


It only makes sense that small businesses are leveraging mobile technology. In fact, four of five (80%) are using mobile technology in their businesses. This could mean everything from using their mobile device for email while on the road to developing mobile apps and responsive design websites, to file sharing and using their phone or tablet to conduct a product demo.
