more than a computer

The number of adults in the US that use mobile devices has grown from 36% in 2011 to 64% in 2014. This increase in mobile adoption has huge implications for businesses that adapt accordingly — and for those that don’t! These always-online consumers have different expectations and demands for businesses now. Those businesses that do not meet modern consumers’ needs will pay the price through lost sales and customer attrition.

  • 48% felt like a company didn’t care about their business if a site does not work well on mobile
  • 40% turned to a competitor’s site after a bad mobile experience
