In today's age of fast-paced technology, Moms are often thought to be late adopters of what's new. However, a recent study conducted by Mom Central Consulting and GoWare shows some surprising findings about Moms and cell phone usage. Moms are, in fact, not behind the times at all. Based on a diverse sampling of over 400 Moms, the survey found that cell phones have become an essential part of the modern Mom's life, with nearly 90% of Moms stating they have their cell phone on them at all times. A remarkable 78% of Moms would use their phones to access and share documents, photos, music or Websites if they could, and 78% would be interested in checking email through their phone, while 76% would use online calendars and other features for family scheduling. Moreover, 93% of Moms would consider using their cell phones to access their grocery lists, collect and redeem coupons from their cell phones as the phone is the one thing they can generally count on having with them.
"The results of our survey were encouraging and show that we're on the right track with MobileMom. We've created a practical, easy and convenient way for those 78% of Moms who have expressed interest in taking their documents and Web content with them and staying connected when they are away from home, and the computer," said Jason Thibeault, co-founder and CTO (Chief Technical Officer) The executive responsible for the technical direction of an organization.
