DO SMART PHONES REALLY MAKE PEOPLE MORE PRODUCTIVE?



Some companies love smartphones because they make it possible for employees to work from any location at practically any time. Others distrust the mobile devices because they think they’re primarily used for playing video games and browsing the Internet aimlessly.

This leads to an important question for today’s businesses: do smartphones really make people more productive?

The Right Apps Matter

Smartphones, by themselves, don’t add to productivity. Downloading the right apps, though, could make it easier for you to work even when you’re away from your desk.

There are plenty of apps that could boost productivity when used properly. Some apps worth using include

Sticky Notifications – gives you important reminders so you don’t get caught up in something else and miss a meeting or deadline

• Evernote – jot down notes and take pictures that you can quickly share with others or just store for later use

Checkmark – reminds you to complete certain tasks when you are near them. If your phone notices that you’re near the pharmacy, it will remind you to pick up your prescription now so that you don’t have to come back later

• Bump – share files just by bumping your smartphone against someone else’s

Google Drive – file and access Google documents from your mobile device

If you learn to use these apps, then you could improve your efficiency while also making sure  you meet deadlines.

The Follies of Smartphones

These apps could improve your productivity. Then again, let’s not forget that smartphones have their bad side, too.

Smartphones really do make it easy for employees to access websites that let them waste time. Now that so many people have them, IT administrators might as well stop blocking websites. It doesn’t matter if you want your employees to visit Facebook or not. They can just do it on their phones.

There’s also the problem of accessibility. It’s possible that smartphones have made people too accessible. If you can work whenever, wherever, then expectations start to rise. Unfortunately, the human brain can only do so much before it starts to get flakey. That means careless mistakes by overworked employees who start to hate the phones that they used to think were fun and cool.



Productivity comes from the way that people behave. Giving them good tools can definitely boost productivity, but only when people know how to use them properly. Perhaps that’s why this debate continues. Some people find that smartphones make it easier for them to work while others haven’t figured out how to use the tools to their advantage.
