What Mobile Devices Are Vendors Using?

Reading Time: 1

Recently at Direct Capital, we had the chance to survey a cross-section of vendors on a variety of topics. We’ll have a whole series on the the results in the weeks ahead.

As we noted yesterday, vendors mostly sell to businesses or to a mix of businesses and consumers. Our next question was this: What mobile devices do vendors use?

As it turns out, they use a wide range of devices to communicate with customers and employees. Here’s a rough breakdown, according to the results of our survey. Respondents could give more than one answer:

  • iPhone/iPad: 50%
  • Droid: 30%
  • Blackberry: 25%
  • Other Tablet/Smartphone: 8%
  • None of the above: 18%

It’s little surprise that iPhones remain the most used device for vendors because…well, because they’re the most used for everybody. Droids have picked up a ton of business-friendly apps in recent years, so it makes sense that they’ve crawled slightly ahead of Blackerries.

In case you’ve forgotten, Direct Capital actually has a mobile app for vendors. Check it out and see if you can use it.

What mobile device do you prefer?
