Tablet owners often work from hotels. Some 10 percent spend between eight percent and 35 percent of their time at a hotel.
More than half work from a customer site or office during the week. About 54 percent spend at least a portion of their weekly working hours at a customer site or office.
In a very condensed time frame (roughly a year), tablets have achieved one-quarter of smartphones’ presence in the enterprise, and one might argue that the computing functionality a tablet represents is sufficient for many remote workers, especially business or technology consultants.
The percentage of employees bringing tablets to work grew 120 percent in 2010, whereas enterprise-provisioned tablets grew only 64 percent.
Employees provided with tablets see an average uplift in productivity of 40 percent across all locations. As a comparison, workers provided with smart phones see just a 16 percent average uplift. Yankee Group asked respondents to estimate their productivity before they were asked which devices they use, so their responses are not skewed by their device usage.
