New research conducted shows that 80% of people research business products and services on their tablets.
A majority, 93%, also purchase products online via their laptops or desktops. Among more than 23,500 executives and consumers in 43 countries, the survey revealed that 50% of them procured IT products for business using smartphones, with 13% spending between $1000Â andÂ $3500 USD.
However, a 45% found security concerns troubling, and another 43% are hesitant with unresponsive websites. These two are the most common reasons why executives did not make purchases thru smartphones. Like everyone else, senior executives also want a responsive channel where they can switch from one device to another when making the purchase.
