AN ECONOMIST INTELLIGENCE Unit survey last month found the pace of adoption of wireless devices is picking up with 63% of companies currently evaluating or implementing wireless technologies. The top benefits perceived by companies are that it supports flexible and remote working (46%) and helps employees use travel time more efficiently (40%). Thirty-five percent also felt it improved collaboration between dispersed teams. Twenty-four percent cited keeping on top of e-mail as a personal benefit.
Research by IDC says that the average productivity gain for a senior executive using wireless technology is $500 a month, while for general employees the gain is around $120.
