Today's technology market-makers demand rapid deployment and even more rapid obsolescence. For a small business owner trying to keep up with the latest, greatest whiz-bang, the most common result is pure frustration.

For a small business owner trying to go to work every day to help their business grow by doing what he or she does best, there is never enough time nor money to keep their business anywhere close to the cutting edge of technology.

Shopping ranks as the Number 1 activity on a smartphone with 93% of consumers saying they use their phones to shop. 58% use the phone to just browse and 38% say they do so at least once a week. A full 40% use their phones to buy stuff!
