How Do Road Warriors Stay Productive? Find Out About Their Habits On The Go

— July 20, 2010

A new online survey of 600 mobile workers commissioned by Egnyte, a file-server remote-access vendor, reveals the truth about the road warriors' use of technology.

Among the findings:

-Smartphone devotees confessed that no moment is too private to access data, with more than half (53%) admitting that they accessed data from their smartphone while in the bathroom.

-Nearly half (41%) of mobile professionals confess that they are most addicted to the Facebook app but a mere 9% truly believe that staying in touch apps like Facebook and Twitter keep them most productive when on the road.

In the "I miss the file server, the boss not so much," category: Forty eight percent of respondents reported that easily accessing files from a file server is missed most when working outside of the office but apparently professionals don't really miss their boss. Only 13% stated that they miss seeing their boss when not working in the office. 45% said they don't miss anything.

On staying productive: Document apps keep 36% of mobile users the most productive while on the road; only 1 percent cited finance and expense apps as the most productive.
