Out of the box thinking

Recently, a study was conducted on the efficiency of using a BlackBerry mobile device in Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and Latin America. The study found that BlackBerry smartphone users save on average 60 minutes a day – that’s five hours a week.

By focusing on the areas of saving time and increasing productivity, the survey found that the average BlackBerry user turned this saved time into valuable, productive time. For example, a travelling employee is able to send and read emails and communicate with co-workers and/or customers, saving them time later, when back in the office. By saving time, productivity increased 38% for the employee and for the team as a whole. With as much as 50% of small business employees in Europe classified as mobile workers, the mobile smartphone industry is keeping pace with the growing number of time-saving features they are adding to smartphones.

The survey specifically found that 40% of BlackBerry smartphone users would use the extra 60 minutes a day on administration tasks, while 34% would use the time on sales and marketing activities. As for personal use of the BlackBerry smartphone, 32% of users would spend the saved time to relax more, 24% would spend more time with their family, and 21% would spend more time exercising.

A South African BlackBerry smartphone user said, “I save at least five hours a week by using BlackBerry from iONLINE. When you work for an SME you need to be able to multitask. I'm rarely in the office and would not be able to survive without my BlackBerry. I travel a lot and BlackBerry has helped me manage my time more efficiently. It helps me to look professional, be more responsive, and manage my business from anywhere at any given moment. I can get through a mountain of work while relaxing with a cup of coffee at the airport for example, while I wait to board."
