Bedrijven riskeren vervreemding van klanten met beperkte mobiele webstrategieën

LONDEN, December 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Driemaandelijkse Metrics Report van Netbiscuits onthult dat, ook al ontwerpen bedrijven voor de top 10 meest gebruikte mobiele apparaten, ze nog steeds slechts 56% van wereldwijde verkeersaandeel in beslag nemen

  • Meer webverkeer is afkomstig van functionele telefoons dan van tablets in 7 van de 8 markten*
  •  6 Blackberry-apparaten staan in de top 25 meest gebruikte apparaten  
  • Kindle Fire een van de top 25 apparaten voor mobiel surfen op het web in Noord-Amerika

Netbiscuits, de wereldwijde marktleider in softwareoplossingen voor adaptieve webontwikkeling, heeft vandaag bekendgemaakt dat een aantal bedrijven hun klanten mogelijk een slechte mobiele webervaring biedt. Deze bedrijven verliezen zo hun klanten aan concurrenten als ze geen mobiele strategieën opbouwen die gericht zijn op de veranderende webtoegangspatronen of de vele verschillende apparaten die mensen gebruiken. Het driemaandelijkse Metrics Report van Netbiscuits onthult dat, ook al ontwerpen bedrijven voor de top 10 meest gebruikte mobiele apparaten, ze nog steeds slechts 56% van het wereldwijde verkeersaandeel in beslag nemen.

De gewoonten van mobiele webgebruikers veranderen, en websites worden geopend via apparaten die zelden worden opgenomen in de mobiele strategieën van bedrijven. In 7 van de 8 onderzochte regionale markten is het meeste webverkeer nog steeds afkomstig van functionele telefoons in plaats van van tablets. Dit is essentieel voor mobiele bedrijfsstrategieën waarbij er vaak van uitgegaan wordt dat de pc-websites op tablets worden bekeken. Op zichzelf is dit ook een beperkte strategie door het negeren van functies zoals touch en GPS-functionaliteit.

Het dalende gebruik van Blackberry-apparaten heeft ertoe geleid dat sommige bedrijven ermee opgehouden zijn hun webervaring voor deze smartphones te optimaliseren. Uit het Metrics Report blijkt echter dat, hoewel dalende, zes Blackberry-apparaten zich nog steeds onder de top 25 apparaten bevinden op basis van het wereldwijde verkeersaandeel, met de Blackberry 8520 op de vijfde plaats.  

"Tenzij bedrijven de veranderende trends in de manier waarop mensen het internet opgaan omarmen, is het mogelijk dat ze het grootste deel van hun klanten laten zitten met een langzame, beperkte of zelfs irrelevant ervaring, en uiteindelijk klanten verliezen aan concurrenten met betere, boeiendere ervaringen," aldus Daniel Weisbeck, CMO, Netbiscuits. "Bedrijven moeten ervoor zorgen dat hun webapp of website wordt aangepast voor een superieure en op maat gemaakte webervaring op alle apparaten, browsers en functies als ze de grootste kans willen hebben om hun klanten te boeien en te behouden in een sterk concurrerende economie. Dit is een gebied waar responsief ontwerp nooit genoeg is.  Responsief ontwerp helpt bedrijven niet om de ervaring aan te passen door middel van bijvoorbeeld een snellere beeldconversie, GPS en touchfuncties."

Het Metrics Report maakt ook de top apparaatcategorieën op basis van wereldwijd webverkeer bekend. De iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S staat bovenaan de lijst met 31% van het wereldwijde verkeersaandeel, gevolgd door de Samsung GT-I9100 (Galaxy S2, Galaxy Z) met 6% aandeel en de Samsung GT-I9300 op de derde plaats met 4%.

Het cloud-gebaseerde adaptieve webontwikkelingsplatform van Netbiscuits stelt bedrijven in staat om snel en eenvoudig rijke mobiele webervaringen te creëren die aangepast worden aan elk mobiel apparaat, ongeacht het wereldwijde verkeersaandeel ervan.

Over het Metrics Report

Het Metrics Report is gebaseerd op een analyse van het wereldwijde webverkeer over het Netbiscuits Platform in oktober 2012. Regionale* markten bijgehouden in dit rapport omvatten Azië-Pacific, Oost-Europa, het Midden-Oosten en Noord-Afrika, Noord-Amerika, Midden- en Zuid-Amerika, Sub-Saharisch Afrika en West-Europa.  Om het rapport volledig te lezen kunt u terecht op http://www.netbiscuits.com/mobile-web-metrics-report-2012

Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) ir...
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn rea...

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example...
