AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Oct 1, 2012) - One of the fundamental challenges that wireless and mobile industry professionals have is getting access to necessary data and statistics. For research providers, the challenge is the distribution of this valuable data, forecasts and statistics. iGR, a market research consultancy focused on the wireless and mobile industry, is launching a new iPad app product, GlobalStats, that will meet the challenges of both of these groups.
Today iGR launches the pre-purchase of GlobalStats, an iPad app that will be rich with data and information on the wireless and mobile communications industry. GlobalStats will allow iGR to make its large amount of survey data and forecasts more accessible to not only research professionals, but also to professionals in sales, public relations, marketing, business development and engineering.
Before development begins, iGR needs to determine if there is sufficient demand for this type of product. To answer this question, iGR is using the crowdfunding website, Indiegogo. Interested wireless and mobile industry professionals can "pre-purchase" the app at a reduced cost in a fixed funding campaign starting October 1st, 2012.
iGR plans to develop the new product in November and December and expects to make the app and research available in January of 2013.
"Our new GlobalStats product is simple. We will build the GlobalStats iPad app and provide updates to the information for 12 months," said Iain Gillott, president and founder of iGR, a market research consultancy focused on the wireless and mobile industry. "Early supporters will not only get access to a great product at a great price, but also the feel-good factor of knowing they started something new."
iGR's new GlobalStats iPad app product will provide easy access to information using the following categories:
- 'Survey Stats' - access to large amounts of survey data
- 'Summaries' - ability to read executive summaries for iGR's many research studies
- 'Forecasts' - access to various wireless & mobile industry forecasts for each region of the world through an easy-to-navigate world map
- 'News' - links to major wireless and mobile industry news sites
- 'Opinion' - ability to read iGR's opinion newsletter
- 'Client Area' - access to all published iGR reports for subscription service clients
- 'Video' - links to iGR's video tutorials.
The information in the new GlobalStats iPad app product will be valuable for:
- Mobile operators
- Device OEMs
- Financial analysts and investors
- Wireless and Mobile Industry research professionals
- Industry sales and business development professionals
- Engineering professionals
- Wireless and Mobile Industry public relations
