As the world becomes incredibly mobile, businesses need to adapt their communications to fit the more flexible business environment. A great way to do this is by using business mobiles.
Providing your team with their own mobiles can be a great way to increase productivity and ensure that they’re always reachable—even when they’re out of the office. But there are some other great advantages of business mobile phones too…
We know that cost is an important part of any business decision. Business mobile contracts can be a more cost-effective alternative to individual, commercial mobile solutions. Having all your business mobiles under one roof can reduce your businesses running costs.
2. Keeps staff connected
Being a unified business is important—especially in the modern age of business communications. Having mobiles for your staff allows them to stay connected to their colleagues, even if they’re out on the road or not at their desk. Business mobiles are particularly advantageous for businesses with ‘on-the-road’ staff.
3. Pooled data
Another great advantage of having business mobile phones is the ability to have pooled mobile data. Pooled data is exactly like it sounds—a pool of data that all of your mobiles can pull their usage from. That means that if one mobile uses more mobile data than normal, it can pull from the pool to avoid out of bundle charges.
4. Unified billing
Running a business is a complex task. You don’t need any more bills or paperwork than is absolutely necessary. When you choose to move to business mobiles, you can unify your entire mobile contract into one, simple and straightforward monthly bill, rather than lots of separate ones.
5. High quality handsets
A big advantage of business mobile contacts is the ability to choose your phone. With so many different handsets of the market, there are a wide range of options available to your business. It doesn’t have to be the latest, top end iPhone, we have plenty of smaller, lower cost phones for your business.
6. Perk for employees
Giving your staff their own business mobile is often seen as a perk. Not only does it enable your employees to work wherever they like, but it also gives them an extra work incentive, which many may choose to take home and use as normal.
7. Deal with smaller businesses
Nobody likes being on hold for hours. It’s frustrating and time consuming. A great advantage of business mobiles is having a small, local and reliable company that can manage them (like us). When you choose Bytes Digital, you’ll have a dedicated account manager, and in-house support from our team to help provide your business with the communications platform it deserves.
8. One network
The most common problem with consumer mobiles is the variety of contract length, mobile network and tariffs. One advantage of moving to business mobiles is that you can have all of your employees mobile phones on one network, using the same tariff, with the same handset for the same contract term.
9. VoIP mobile app
With mobility in the forefront of many businesses minds, it is important to consider how your telephone system works with your remote workers. Being able to keep in touch with customers and prospects is vital, no matter where your team are working. With business mobiles, you can seamlessly integrate your VoIP telephone system with the VoIP mobile app.
10. Lone worker protection
We often find that businesses with a large number of remote or on the road workers struggle to get on top of their management. This is a common problem for haulers and construction companies. Using business mobile phones allows your workers to be protected, with GPS tracking and emergency contact details in the event that something should happen.
11. Work from home
With more and more businesses are working from home, upgrading to business mobile phones shows an obvious advantage. Employees are able to simply and easily keep in touch with their colleagues, customers and prospects from home using their mobile. You can also ensure that they’re able to answer inbound calls while they’re working from home.
12. Ensures business continuity
Keeping your business consistent is important. With business mobiles, you can unify your entire fleet of mobiles under one, simple to manage account. This keeps things nice and easy with one unified and complete account.
13. Future proof
With the 2025 ISDN switch off looming, and more and more businesses choosing to work from home, ensuring your business telecoms are future proof is important. Business mobiles are a great way to ensure you’re not going to be affected when the UK switches off its ISDN network.
14. Ruggedised phones
We know that the latest iPhone isn’t the best phone for every type of business. Many businesses need tough, ruggedised mobile phones for their workers, particularly those on sites. These phones are built to last and to endure tough conditions.
15. More flexible working environments
Finally, our last advantage of having mobile phones for your business is the ability to work more flexibly. From hot desking to remote working and even commuting. Having a business mobile plan allows your employees to connect, even when they’re not sat at their desk.
As you can see, there are so many great advantages to business mobiles. From cost saving to telecoms unification and future proofing. For more information about how our business mobiles can benefit your business, visit our business mobile solutions page or get in touch today.
