Research and Markets: Mobile Marketing to Life Scientists (2012) - Discover how to Move Forward with a Mobile Device Outreach Strategy

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/f648xc/mobile_marketing) has announced the addition of the "Mobile Marketing to Life Scientists (2012)" report to their offering.

Competing for a scientist's attention isn't easy, which is why major suppliers seek to maximize every possible form of outreach. Still in its nascent stage, connecting with scientists via mobile devices presents a new way for suppliers to get some face-time with scientists. The infrastructure is there, and scientists (like the rest of the population), are increasingly relying on PDAs, smartphones and tablets for personal use. Many suppliers have yet to develop many (if any) applications designed specifically for mobile devices, but most of them have already invested resources in figuring out how to begin.

Enter BioInformatics LLC's newest report Mobile Marketing to Life Scientists. Designed to instruct suppliers on scientists' mobile device usage and preferences in the lab, this report will provide guidance as to how to move forward with a mobile device outreach strategy.

This report will help you to understand:

- Use of mobile computing in the lab

- Reasons for not using portable/mobile devices in the lab

- Ways desktop computers and portable/mobile devices support scientists' research

- Information scientists would like to access via a smartphone or tablet in support of their work in the lab

- Work-related content scientists create using desktop computers and portable/mobile devices
