DURHAM, NC--(Marketwire - September 29, 2010) - Mi-Co announced today the release of a new white paper providing a snapshot of what different enterprise users look for in mobile data collection devices and software systems. The white paper serves as a follow-up analysis of a survey recently conducted by Mi-Co, on the same topic. The paper also provides a brief overview of the state of Enterprise Mobility today including findings that would be of interest to software companies, enterprises with mobility interests, governmental organizations and more.

Read what's popular in electronic data collection for organizations based on Mi-Co's survey results of 8,500 professionals. Understand the nuances and characteristics end-users favor in data input platforms. For example, the survey showed that touch-filled forms are highly preferred (61.5%) versus electronic forms populated through a keyboard (51.9%) or stylus (48.1%), yet the use of a Tablet PC on a Windows OS trumps all other types of mobile devices such as the iPad and Blackberry on preference ratings. 

Elodia Cole, Mi-Co customer at Medical University of South Carolina says, "The ability to quickly assess data quality and monitor study processes is a prime motivation for our interest in moving towards enterprise mobility for conductance of clinical trials data collection. Our ultimate goal is to minimize data queries, an often time consuming and under budgeted aspect of clinical trial activities. We are currently assessing various technologies that better integrate the data collection and data management processes so that study monitors can review data as it is being collected and intervene as necessary."
