Mobile device use growing in the workplace


The use of iPhones and iPads in the the workplace has seen a steady rise. That looks to continue, especially with regards to the Apple tablet.

S&P Capital IQ -- a provider of multi-asset class data, research and analytics -- recently released the results of a new survey detailing industry professionals' preference, use and likely future purchase intentions of financial apps and delivery systems.

Responses to the survey -- with more than 400 respondents from S&P Capital IQ's investment banking clients -- underscore the growing relevance of mobile devices in the workplace and how smartphones, tablets and investor-directed apps have become an integral part of users' personal and professional lives. Among the results the S&P Capital IQ survey uncovered are: 

° BlackBerrys still matter, but iPhones play a significant role as a dual-use device: Devices used for work vary as 39% of respondents use a BlackBerry and 36% use an iPhone for business matters; 58% of respondents use an iPhone in their personal lives;

° Mobile apps are largely used during travel and commuting, not during the day: Clients are most likely to use mobile apps when traveling (41% of responses), and least likely to use them during peak/busy periods (7% of responses) for work purposes;

° Tablets are for fun, not for work (yet): 61% of respondents said less than 20% of their tablet use was related to work, while 33% of respondents said 80-100% of their time spent on a tablet was for pleasure; and

° Demand for tablets continues; high percentage will upgrade to the "new new thing:" 70% of respondents will purchase their first tablet (32%) or upgrade to a newer version (38%) in the next six to 18 months.
