5 Reasons to Invest in Business Mobiles

Unsure about what to do any why you should invest time and effort into your business mobiles? You could already be missing on on these key benefits.

Business mobiles are one of the most important investments an organisation can make. Mobiles are central to efficient day-to-day operation, allowing employees to work remotely, access files on the go, provide greater customer service and much more.

Here are our top benefits of buying business mobiles from Birmingham Telecom.

Accessibility

It goes without saying that one of the biggest benefits to business mobiles is accessibility. Mobiles give you and your team a direct contact number even when out of the office, so you never miss a beat. Having a dedicated mobile is also great for customer service, you can contact clients and respond to messages quickly and easily, regardless of location.

Internet Access, Everywhere

Any good business mobile package will come with a generous mobile data allocation. Mobile data enables users to access the internet remotely from any location with a reasonable signal. Easy access to information like emails, directions and cloud hosted company resources can prove invaluable when out on the road meeting clients and completing assignments.

Increased Productivity

Business mobiles can help increase your productivity and enable you and your team to get more done during work hours. Employees can take calls during their commute, respond to critical messages out of the office, work from home and more. Staff can even use business mobiles to remotely access and work on files on the company system through the internet.

Data Security

Following the introduction of the GDPR in 2018, system breaches resulting in a loss of customer data can now result in severe penalties. Under the new GDPR rules you can be fined as much as 4% of annual global turnover, enough to put some organisations out of business.

By issuing your employees business phones you ensure that no company data -including customer data- is stored on personal phones. This helps reduce the risk of data falling into the wrong hands through malicious acts, loss, theft, or sale of personal devices.

Device Management (MDM)

Businesses can use Mobile Device Management (MDM) software to manage business mobiles from the IT department. Employers can create profiles and manage their employees’ access to specific websites (such as Facebook) to ensure mobiles are only being used for work purposes.

In the unlikely event of a work phone being compromised, you can use MDM software to lock, or complete wipe employees’ phones from a remote location. This is especially effective for cases where a work phone is lost or stolen, or rare situations where an employee wishes to harm your business using the content on their mobile device.

MDM can also be used to manage multiple mobile devices at the same time. You can bulk install apps, software updates, and more across all devices simultaneously.

How to Get the Best Deal

Buying business mobiles can often be a daunting task.

With so many different options for data, calls, minutes, texts and devices it can be difficult to get the best solution without being ripped off.

Most people go direct to the Network, but the best way to get a good deal is to speak to your telecoms provider. The big networks like EE, Vodafone & O2 are often too large to provide adequate support and rarely take into account your unique needs a business.

By using your telecoms provider for business mobiles you can benefit from:

  • Honest, unbiased advice
  • More personal service & support
  • A familiar team that know your needs
  • One account manager
  • Fewer bills to manage
