Five out of nine respondents said that their company has at least one app that supported sales or marketing.
Most (7 of 9) can envision an app that would help with marketing or sales. One respondent wasn't sure. Interestingly, 5 of 9 respondents believe that scientists will see these apps as impractical or of no benefit.
The survey continues. Enter your observations and help spread the word. Thanks for your continuing support.
Given these preliminary data, is it possible to create smartphone apps that scientists can use in the lab? And can their usefulness for companies extend beyond marketing and sales, for example, into product development?
I interviewed staff at numerous commerical life science products and services companies and discovered the breadth of applications for both product and service companies in our industry. The results provide a glimpse of what the future of smartphone apps in the lab might look like.
Given the migration to mobile, the value of apps to all parties in the sales process is only going to grow.
