Work Is Where The Smartphone Is
A Galaxy Research study commissioned by Optus SMB surveyed 500 SMB owners nationwide to better understand how they work on the move; it also found owners could free up as much as five weeks a year if they were able to attend to more business tasks while out of the office.
Some 68 per cent said that performing business tasks on the move enables them to more effectively juggle their work/life balance.
SMB owners said they often work from their vehicle as they still had a business to run even when out on the road (65 percent); that it was more convenient (47 percent); and because they had everything needed to get the job done (40 percent).
Two-thirds said they would save more than four hours a week if they were able to do more on the road, while four-out-of-10 would be up to three hours better off.
