m.commerce growth continues

Projections have just been updated by Forrester Research for the next 5 years of U.S. m.commerce

The reputable company predicts that US mobile payments will reach US$90 billion by 2017, a 48% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from the US$12.8 billion spent in 2012.

Forrester’s five-year mobile payments forecast segments mobile payments into three categories:

  1. in-store mobile payments (proximity payments)
  2. mobile commerce (mCommerce)
  3. mobile peer-to-peer (P2P) and remittances

This trajectory is reinforced in a chart recently published by Statistica, which displays comparative growth on handheld devices. Over the next 4 years, while the value of m.commerce on smartphones is predicted to increase by 250%, on tablets it is predicted to grow by over 425%.

Digital Tsunami has promoted the use of efficient and innovative online tools since 1996.

Responsive design is the latest mechanism to persuasively present your content. The dramatic  market penetration of handheld devices, combined with broadband access and the extensive availability of WiFi hotspots, has resulted in some users accessing the Internet by a smartphone only.

All new websites Digital Tsunami develops will now also be mobile compliant.

The launch .. was a success. We were able to present this live on a Wireless connection during our Sydney, Australia sales conference on a location with very limited internet bandwidth. This proves the technology used .. renders light webpages which are easy to download on a browser.

Comments I've heard from our employees were all positive and reflected precisely what we were looking for: a simple but concise, clean and effective webpage.

We acknowledge the timeframe given to you was extremely short but nevertheless you have sucessfully delivered the project on schedule .. the critical success factor was communication and availability of Digital Tsunami's team.

I am very glad we were able to partner with such a professional team as yours and I am confident any other initiatives with you will be as successful.
