The chance of you leaving the house without your smartphone nowadays is pretty slim, isn’t it? And why is that? Well, apart from the fact we’ve all come to be accustomed to using it like an extra appendage for calls and texts, we’ve also become very fond of emailing, keeping up to date with business matters, and utilizing GPS and mapping applications.
Of course, our information, especially when it comes to business related data, is very important to us. In fact, you could say that it is the backbone of business travel.
Just how crucial this information is can be clearly seen from the results of a recent study on US smartphone usage.
The study revealed that:
- 67% of users stored both personal and professional contacts in the same contact list
- 70% of users use their smartphone as a sole means of storing their contacts
- 22% of users have already implemented a cloud storage system into their backup plans in order to prepare for the risk of data loss
- And 23% of users would be prepared to pay $400 or more to guarantee the security of their data
And this can only point to one thing, can’t it?—Cloud storage.
If everyone utilized this cheap, efficient, and practical backup solution, whether in way of business or personal data, our contacts and other vital information on our smartphone’s would never be lost thanks to cloud storage.
