A leading VoIP provider in the United States surveyed hundreds of small businesses to measure mobile device adoption and cloud service usage among today’s businesses. Tablet adoption among businesses has increased to 62% from just 28% two years ago, says RingCentral. Interestingly, cloud app popularity in the business community paralleled the unprecedented mobile gadget usage in enterprises.
For instance, businesses around the world are expected to buy more than 96.3 million tablets in the next three years, from just 13.6 million units in 2011. Piper Jaffray, an investment bank and managing firm based in the US, also said that tablet deployments in businesses can grow to 15% this year, about four-folds from 4% in 2012.
It doesn’t come as a surprise that most businesses use cloud services today to automate tasks crucial to their business, including their hiring process. In fact, cloud app usage among hiring teams or human resources officers are predicted to increase to 13% this year, according to the HR Systems Survey by CedarCrestone Inc.
Although on its road to recovery, the still-volatile US economy has shoved about 11.7 million Americans beneath the employment threshold. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 7.6% of the country’s entire labor force is currently unemployed.
