Kensington Announces Results of 2016 Home Office Productivity Survey

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kensington [®] , a worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business and home office professionals, today announced the results of a survey conducted in March 2016, to see how home office professionals are using computing tools and accessories to increase their productivity and what challenges they face.

The survey revealed that smartphones have emerged as an indispensable productivity tool to help professionals manage their business tasks when they work from a home office. One key finding revealed just how dependent smartphone users have become on their devices for business tasks, with just under half (42%) of respondents picking up their smartphone at least 25 times during their workday. The constant switches between the user's smartphone and PC may become quite disruptive to work flow. The study also found that nearly two-thirds (63%) of those surveyed send files or photos between their phone and their laptop daily or weekly. To transfer these files, smartphone users rely on both email (86%) and texting (45%). This could potentially create a problem for both the users and the business they work for, as relying on third-party services with important business file transfers may expose these files to unintended viewers.
