The Blackberry increases the efficiency of mobile workers, with the average user converting an average of 60 minutes downtime into productive time each day, according to a survey by independent research company Ipsos Reid.

Research In Motion (RIM) unveiled the results of the research it commissioned from looking at the tangible time saving and productivity benefits of Blackberry.

For workers on the move, Blackberry not only increases their productivity, but also that of their overall team, with the research finding that users increase team efficiency by 38%. 

As mobile technology becomes increasingly sophisticated, the number of employees working on the move, remotely and flexibly is growing. Recent Yankee Group research found that more than 50% of small business employees in Europe are classified as mobile workers.

The study was conducted with 1,335 Blackberry smartphone users and 1,387 IT managers in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America.
