Sage Premium Mobile – Tablets and Smart Phones.

70% of Sage ACT users now have a smart phone.  60% of small business owners planning to purchase tablets within the next year.

People are going to smart phones and tablets because of these tools make them mobile.  Today’s mobile workforce requires the small sleek form factor, the fast boot up times and the anywhere anytime access that these tools provide.  You no longer have to lug a laptop along to your meetings and in and out of your car.

There remain challenges as this technology is still at a transitional stage in it’s evolution. In fact, only 35% of all small businesses have policies for tablet computer use although 77% of all users find themselves using their desktop or laptop computers less after purchasing a tablet.  Already 28 % have replaced a PC or laptop with a tablet device!
