Technology   Email comes in faster on their mobile devices

According to the June 2015 study, 80.5% of U.S. small-business owners used their mobile devices for business once a day or more. Almost 25.3% used these once an hour, 11% between three and five times daily, and 17.3% nearly 10 times a day.

All of that mobile time cuts into computer time. Nearly 80% of SBOs used their mobile devices while at work in front of their PCs. The main reason for doing so was to check personal messages, cited by 48% of respondents. Surprisingly, 25% said their email came in faster on their mobile devices, eMarketer report.

Just 12% copped up to being addicts, though high daily usage may mean otherwise. Fully 8% multiscreened because they preferred using their mobiles over a computer, and 7% got distracted by the alerts they received from social and gaming apps.

When it came time to get down to business, SBOs were most likely to use their mobile devices to schedule appointments and communicate with customers, cited by 55.5%.
