Can smart phone technology really help small businesses grow? It all depends on who you ask. Some entrepreneurs say they bought their first smartphone because they wanted to start accepting credit cards at remote locations. Others own one because they can always get directions to clients’ houses, scan QR codes at trade shows, and download repair manuals when faced with that “impossible handyman project.” But not every small business owner is ready to purchase a case of iPhone 5s for their workforce. They worry that the phones will be a distraction and they’ll be paying people employees to watch YouTube or play Words with Friends. Productivity studies have found that these people would have found another distraction somewhere else.
