Mobile is magic for small business

Jill Billhorn, CDW vice president, small business | April 30, 2013
With the increasing convenience and availability of mobile technology, small businesses are finding it easier to compete. The Small Business Mobility Report by CDW found that nearly all respondents -- 94% -- agreed that their use of mobile devices for work tasks has made them more efficient. This efficiency boost grants small businesses an opportunity to extend reach and increase productivity without emptying the piggy bank.

While it may take some time to perfect and implement MDM solutions or to fully understand how to make the most of business apps, most small businesses recognize the growing importance of mobile devices, from smartphones to tablets. In fact, CDW's report found that IT managers expect their employees' use of tablets to more than double in the next year. One thing is certain -- this evolving landscape provides small businesses with the perfect opportunity to do more work in real time, reaping the benefits of mobility and inching closer to larger competitors.

CDW is a leading provider of technology solutions for business, government, education and healthcare. Ranked No. 31 on Forbes' list of America's Largest Private Companies and No. 270 on the FORTUNE 500, CDW was founded in 1984 and employs more than 6,800 coworkers.
