Speedy Services are today launching a new app to help workers access the Speedy catalogue from their mobile phones, even when they’re on site, to help get things done quicker.

Since apps can be used on the go, in-between jobs and with less distraction than when using a desktop computer, the new catalogue app aims to help people get what they need faster, and move on to the tasks in hand.

To find out whether apps help people save time, Speedy Services surveyed 2,000 people in the UK asking how much time they save with apps.

- 53.5% say apps help them save time
- On average, over 2 hours are saved each week due to apps’ ability to help get things done
- 1 in 10 people say they save over 5 hours a week, thanks to apps
- Millennials save more time with apps, with 62.4% of 18-24 year olds saying they save time
- This compares to over 65s, of which 62.3% say they do not save time with apps
- People in England (where 53.8% save time) and Wales (where 55.1% save time) are more likely to save time with apps, compared to people in Scotland, of which 55.6% say they do not save time with apps
- Speedy Services are launching their catalogue app on 18th May to help workers save time

The Speedy catalogue app is available for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone here:
