New Report on Wireless Technology for Social Change

Smartmobs has a post about a new report on wireless technology for social change:

Check out this new Report: “Wireless Technology for Social Change: Trends in NGO Mobile Use”. It’s a really good overview, with great examples, of how mobile technology is transforming the way advocacy, development and relief organizations accomplish their institutional missions. And the authors are folks who really know what they are talking about.

“The global survey found that 86% of non-governmental organization (NGO) employees use mobile technology in their work, and 25% believe it has revolutionized the way their organization or project works. While the most common uses of mobile technology by NGO workers are voice calls (90%) and text messaging (83%), more sophisticated uses, such as mapping (10%), data analysis (8%) and inventory management (8%) also were reported.”
