(San Francisco, 5 November 2013 /PRNewswire) SearchYourCloud announces findings from a recent search survey conducted in both the UK and US. The survey showed that a third of respondents spend between five and twenty-five minutes searching every time they want to find a document, while only one in five searches is correct the first time.
The search for corporate information is eating into workplace productivity, according to the latest research from SearchYourCloud. Moreover, despite the mobile revolution and access to content via multiple devices, search remains a complex and time consuming exercise which wastes valuable time.
The research, conducted in both the UK and the US, found that on average, workers in both markets spent up to 25 minutes looking for a single document in over a third of searches conducted. The responses were similar in the UK and US except those reflecting differing attitudes on BYOD and mobile security between the markets. Furthermore, in 80 percent of cases it took up to eight attempts to find the right information. Only 20 percent of respondents reported first time successful searches.
