May 24, 2012
AOL Government is excited to release new research findings about the impact mobile technology is having on the productivity and operations of federal government agencies. The findings confirm a widespread belief that provisioning mobile technology to federal employees would significantly improve productivity and result in cost savings over the long term.
Among the findings:
- About half (49%) of federal managers surveyed said "government employees like themselves could redeploy at least 7 hours per week toward more productive work if fully enabled to work mobily; 19% said they could redeploy more than 12 hours per week.
- Three out of four respondents (75%) said "productivity" and "cost savings" will result from mobile technology by making it easier to complete work from the field; 82% said mobile technology would make it easier to telework; 67% said by providing immediate access to agency data through mobile devices, it would facilitate decision making.
