According to The Boston Consulting Group report ‘The Mobile Revolution: How Mobile Technologies Drive a Trillion-Dollar Impact’, the mobile technology revolution is spreading further every day and naturally, the business world is already reaping benefits.
The report, which collected data from the US, Germany, Brazil, China, India and Korea, provides clear evidence for the increasing impact of this revolution. The data speaks for itself: mobile technology already represents between 2% and 4% of GDP in these six countries, with the exception of South Korea, where it actually accounts for 11%.
A quick look at the report’s main findings shows mobile technology’s significant global impact on SMEs and the labor market. Here’s how:
According to the report, the success of mobile technology in the SME world may be attributed to the advantages it gives to the owners and workers of small and medium-sized businesses. Participants in the report stated that adopting mobile technology allowed them to become more flexible and agile when it comes to communicating with clients.
Beyond businesses, let’s not forget about the impact of the mobile revolution on consumers. As reflected in the report, 64% of consumers who participated in the survey were willing to give up dining out for a whole year if it meant being able to continue using their smartphone or tablet.
