If you had to guess, how many times a day do you think we check our mobile devices?
According to The Journal of Accountancy, the average person checks 47 times, whilst those aged between 18-24 checking their mobile 86 times a day.
That’s a lot of activity on a handheld device, and with this number no doubt increasing, mobile technology has never been more necessary than it is today.
The business travel space is no exception to these trends either. Business travellers, for example, check their smartphone 34 times a day on average and more than 60 per cent of travellers want real-time travel information by mobile and believe it’s important for mobile to be part of a travel program.
Being able to book, edit, chat and view your itinerary whilst on the go is integral for the busy business traveller.
The same goes for travel health, safety, security and risk management.
We’ve recognised these trends and needs when we built our own intuitive end-to-end mobile business travel management solutions, as did our partners, such as Serko travel.
That’s why mobile apps allow business travellers to search and book, edit, chat and view personal content, all on the go.
