Growing number of mobile devices

- 5 MIN READ - 30 Jul 2013

Have you noticed that in past few years we hear less and less about personal computers and laptops, while at the same time the mobile industry updates are big part of our daily news?

Of course it is understandable with all the exciting new technologies like smartphones and tablets, which probably   add a bit more value than bigger and more robust devices like computers.

Highly likely that we will never get to the point where personal computers are actually gone from our everyday life. While not being physically on our table, the hardware pieces are part of other devices like TVs, home automation systems or if you will – smart mirrors which display you morning news while brushing your teeth. Majority of the work tasks can be already now solved using smartphones, while leaving the computing part to the enormous server parks, which common people will never see during their lifetime.

Mobile World Live has stated, that comparing to the last year same time in the second quarter, there has been shipped almost double number of mobile devices from 156.5 million units to 229.6 million in Q2 2013 (read more). Understandably, where there is a demand, there is a offer – so actually that tells us that people all around the world are willing to buy more and more smartphones. Of course at some regions, developing countries, it is just a new wave of growing trend, while in Europe, USA and China  people probably are exchanging their old devices or choosing new smartphones and tablets over a new laptops or desktop computers.

Does this growing number of mobile devices also mean more SMSs being sent all over the world? I certainly hope so, since the SMS has proven to be one of the best ways of communication with a personal touch, over a distance, next to the phone calls.

How we help with the regulations of global messaging

26 Jun 2017

Forgoing the need to integrate network operators everywhere you need messages delivered is one of the main advantages of using a global messaging platform. Each connection includes legalities, which includes reviewing several agreements and negotiating terms, and technical tasks, like setting up the connections. So, a single company going through this process on their own would invest a lot of time doing things that have already been done by a messaging platform. Also, the company would end up with higher pricing from network operators, as it has much less traffic.

Your sales lab time is scarce

20 Jun 2017

In the series about sales research, I touched upon allocating about 30% of your research time on finding new ideas and possibilities around sales tactics. But how do you actually do it and what do you look for?

An open letter to financial institutions from Yuriy

09 Jun 2017

To the bank, credit card company, and investment firm I work with: I trust you. I really do.

If I didn’t, I wouldn’t put my hard-earned money in your hands. While I’m not a Certified Financial Analyst, I am financially savvy, so I understand that we have a mutually beneficial relationship. From a high-level, banks use the money I deposit to sell loans and invest in other financial instruments. Credit card companies make money on interest charges, other fees, and transaction fees from merchants. The brokerage firm makes money through fees on my account. On the other hand, all I expect is that you are honest about your services, provide returns, and keep my money safe.
