Research Shows Mobile Technology Helps Companies Weather Uncertainty
Survey from Stratix and Hanover Research looks at how businesses are tackling current challenges
Peachtree Corners, Ga (February 8, 2023) — Stratix Corporation, a leading provider of Managed Mobility Services (MMS) in the U.S., has partnered with Hanover Research on a new survey of IT leaders that shows companies are investing in mobile technology solutions to get the nimbleness and efficiency they need to succeed as disruption continues and the economic outlook appears recessionary.
Stratix’s 2023 Enterprise Mobility Outlook report found 86 percent of organizations are using more mobile now than in the last three years, and 97 percent say mobile is very, or extremely, important to their business outcomes. It’s a clear indication business leaders are rapidly turning to mobile technology use cases that enable agility and increase productivity.
“What is different in this year’s Enterprise Mobility Outlook report is that we are seeing IT leaders prioritizing mobile investment strategies to transform workflows, enhance employee enablement and collaboration, and improve supply chain efficiencies,” explained Stratix Senior Vice President of Marketing Elizabeth Klingseisen. “Despite—or perhaps because of—economic conditions, businesses are doubling down on cost-effective mobile technology to be more competitive and effective.”
The study also found the proliferation of mobile use cases is expanding to more than phones and tablets. We found:
- 59% are leveraging more wearable devices in workflows now than in the past three years
- 67% are using more IoT
- 78% say emerging technology impacts overall IT strategy
The report also revealed the proliferation of mobile technology is putting pressure on those same organizations.
“Most IT teams are overwhelmed by the number and diversity of technology solutions they’re now expected to support,” said Klingseisen. “It’s leading to burnout, security concerns, and other problems, so they are increasingly turning to partnering with MMS providers to get the expertise needed to be successful.”
The full survey results and findings can be found in the Stratix 2023 Enterprise Mobility Outlook research report. You can also listen to more analysis from Elizabeth Klingseisen in our Enterprise Mobility Insights podcast.
