ACM is planning to launch a mobile version of the Communications Web site and a series of mobile applications in the coming months. To determine how best to proceed, we have been directly and indirectly collecting data from members for months to help guide our decision making. We have conducted surveys, met with focus groups, and examined usage statistics.
The following table and pie chart show how users with mobile devices have been getting to the Communications Web site. The percentage of users accessing the site with mobile devices is small, but the number is trending upward. This report is based on sampled data.
Here are some of the key takeaways from our research that will influence our decisions going forward:
