2013 Top Products

In this space last year we said a lot more jobsites could be going paperless in the future—or at least be incorporating more mobile computing devices. Judging by this year’s results of the 2013 Top Products, we officially know we’re not going (too) crazy. It’s glaringly obvious that the market for accessing important information on the go has rapidly evolved in just one year and will continue to change. We wonder what’s in store for 2014, but for now enjoy the products that interested you—the reader of EDC’s print, digital, eNewsletter and, of course, mobile content—most in 2013.
