A recent survey of 1,100 small and medium-sized businesses by eFax, a brand of technology company j2 Global Inc., shows how entrepreneurs are increasingly using mobile devices to close deals outside the office.

32 percent say they have closed at least half of their deals this year from a smartphone or tablet.

30 percent say they have sent or received a fax from an airplane or the airport.

37 percent say the best mobile device feature for closing deals on the go is one that allows scanning documents through a phone’s camera.
