Need advice on how to find company's using wireless mobile devices

Hi all and thanks for taking time to read my question.

Does anyone know of a way that I could find out list of companies that use mobile devices within their business? Specifically I'm trying to target medical, fire and law enforcement. But I'm certainly open to other businesses as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Throw a rock and go to the closest business it lands by.  Seriously though, it is harder finding a business that is not using wireless in some form or fashion.

Agreed, but the question was getting a list so that we can target for marketing in a technical aspect. I have iOS and Android applications that are specific to emergency response services. I've got a marketing team that is clueless on how to find companies that use mobile devices in mass quantity.

I, personally, do not know of any publication that tracks and monitors wireless device users and/or business'.  You might have to get creative with trying to find out this information; e.g. - Generate a master list by cold calling or hiring a firm to find out the information for you.  Another possibility is leveraging the relationships you have with your current clientele to gather this type of information.

With the fire/law enforcement, you might could go to their city/county website and find docket info on purchases, deals, and so on since that would be public record. A lot of cities and counties publish this stuff online.

@William - That is a very creative idea.  ;)  You might even be able to find the same information for some (but not all) hospitals/medical facilities.

All the information and feedback is appreciated. But a lot of it is common sense. I was looking to see if anyone out there may know of a source that I could go to where an entity has already compiled this information. I am a system engineer and I'm trying to help a marketing team that has no idea what they're doing. I don't have the time to go & research and do data mining on this information. Perhaps it's a lost cause for me. I just thought I would try to help out. If anybody has any other ideas they would be greatly appreciated. Again thanks everybody for the input so far.

Sorry that we couldn't provide any additional ideas to you.  Also it's apparently not so common sense if the marketing team can't figure it out.  ;)

Hopefully someone else can chime in with other ideas.
