In all categories, a high percentage of current users plan to expand their implementations over the near term. The proportion of businesses professing a lack of interest in these more complex apps has remained stable during the past year.

Drivers and Barriers Behind Mobile B2E

North American businesses point to a long list of reasons for implementing mobile worker apps. Top adoption drivers continue to focus on anticipated improvements in employee productivity and business process efficiencies. A host of other benefits receive almost as high a priority from respondents. In today’s economy, businesses are clearly feeling the pressure from their competition, either viewing mobile B2E apps as a means to keep up with competitors or, ideally, an innovative way to establish a competitive edge.

The probability of increased revenues and cost savings are strong purchase drivers, as are enhanced customer engagement and happier employees. Data security vulnerabilities remain customers’ strongest concern, signaling a clear and continued need for vendors and channels to address proactively this fear with sales prospects.
Cost continues to be a top purchase barrier. A range of other issues are cited as reasons not to implement mobile B2E, with back-office integration receiving heightened (and deserved) attention, compared to 2014 responses. The response of No real business need is always a showstopper.
