Fayetteville, Ark. — Zweig Group, publisher of Civil + Structural Engineer and more than a dozen annual surveys on important issues in the architectural, engineering, planning and environmental consulting industries, announced its first-ever Cell Phone & Mobile Device Survey. The survey, which is part of Zweig Group’s new mini-survey series, is open for participation through March 2 and will be published April 15.

“As cell phones, tablets and other mobile devices are increasingly capable of doing complex tasks, A/E/P and environmental consulting professionals rely on them more for work,” said Andrea Bennett, Zweig Group’s research and publications manager. “We wanted to find out more about how they’re implemented, whether firms provide them to employees, and what service providers are used. Our goal is to provide industry benchmarks, so firm leaders can see if they’re using cell phones and mobile devices to the best of their abilities, how much their peers are spending, and what phone or mobile device applications could help their employees do their best work.”

Bennett reminds A/E/P and environmental consulting professionals that the quality of any survey depends on its response-rate and encourages employees at any level in an organization to contribute to the Cell Phone & Mobile Device Survey.

“The more responses we have, the better our snapshot of cell phone and mobile device usage in the A/E/P and environmental consulting firms,” she says. “This is good for the industry as a whole, because more data means that we can really drill-down that information to show what firm’s peer and target institutions are doing. Lastly, survey participants receive a discount code that can be used for any survey product, so it’s really a win-win for everyone.”

The mini-survey format of the Cell Phone & Mobile Device Survey means that it will be available in a digital format only for a reduced rate and that it will offer an in-depth look at this specific employee benefit.

“We’re really excited about the implementation of mini-surveys this year,” Bennett said. “Not only does the digital-only format mean that we can offer them at a fraction of the cost of our regular surveys, but it also means that readers won’t have to wait to receive their products after ordering. Another great aspect, from an aesthetic point-of-view, is that these products will be colorful, which just makes them a little more engaging to the reader.”

Mini-survey participants receive a 50 percent discount code; full-length survey participants receive a 65 percent discount code. For more information about the Cell Phone & Mobile Device Survey, visit http://zweiggroup.com/surveys or email research@zweiggroup.com.
