  • All of the top 10 retailers said they were going
    to increase their mobile investment in 2012
  • Overall, 54% planned to increase their mobile
    investment next year
  • 86% saw mobile as an opportunity while 11% saw
    it as a threat

CFO’s are not ones to blindly start throwing money around.  If the majority of these C level executives are going to increase their mobile investment, it’s a good idea if you plan for a mobile-centric 2012. There is a mass volume of information, studies and research available that point to how important mobile consumers are going to be to your business.  In fact, there is now research on not having a mobile presence will hurt your organization.  For more information on
