So, you’re looking for a new business mobile for you or your employer(s) but you’re not sure whether to go for the iPhone 11 or the new iPhone 12. Sound familiar? We’ve been getting a lot of questions from our customers on what the main differences are and which one we recommend, so we thought we’d do a blog going through just that!

Camera

The iPhone 12’s camera is a slight upgrade from the iPhone 11 model. For example, night mode now works on the ultrawide and selfie cameras too. If a top of the range business mobile camera is what you’re after, then we would recommend the iPhone 12 Pro or Max. These models have had major upgrades in true Apple fashion, including a larger image sensor and a fourth telephoto camera for more distant subjects too.

Winner: iPhone 12

Data

Another big difference between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 is 5G data. Unlike any previous iPhone model, the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max work with the 5G mobile networks of certain network providers. 5G is the fifth generation of cellular networks and is one of the fastest wireless technologies ever created. This means speedy wireless load times!

Winner: iPhone 12

Dual Sim

A dual SIM setup lets you have two different phone numbers. This means you can activate two sims onto one phone which works great for people who need a separate business and mobile number but only one to use one device.

This is a feature available to both iPhone 11 and 12 users, however Apple have stated that to be able to use 5G on your iPhone 12 you will need to disable Dual SIM mode.

Winner: both

Which is better for a business mobile?

If you’re looking for a better phone in terms of the best data, camera and battery-life, then the iPhone 12 is a clear winner. However, there are obvious advantages to purchasing the iPhone 11, the main one being cost. The best thing to do is to speak to someone like ourselves to see what is best suited to your individual requirements.

Which network should I go with?

We can help you pick the best network provider! At Telecoms Solutions, one of the main services we provide is business mobiles, working with dozens of companies in the UK to provide the best business mobile plans that work for them. Our greatest advantage over other larger companies is that we ensure our clients our appointed an account manager who becomes your sole point of contact.

Business mobiles have always been important aspects of a company’s efficiency, but in the current climate they are more vital than ever. With offices around the world working from home, it’s important to make sure that a lack of office presence doesn’t mean that your customers are being ignored. With remote working on the rise, let’s take a look at some of the benefits that business mobiles can provide you and your company.

Work from everywhere with business mobiles

Your office, anywhere

Did you know that nearly half of workers launch and host web conferences from their mobile devices? And that 66% of these people believe that their mobile device affords them more flexibility and freedom when conducting such calls? (Source: Applied Tech).

This is a far cry from the days when computer webcams were the only way of conducting video conferences. The portability of business mobiles mean that you can have many of the facilities that you would find at your office desk – but on the move and available at any time.

Business mobiles will allow your staff to be productive and efficient at all times, even when they’re away from their laptop. This means that the employees in your company can offer collaborative help and quality service to both colleagues and customers respectively – at any time of the day.

They’re a cost-effective alternative

If you have an employee that’s using their personal mobile for business matters, this can sometimes cause alot of headaches. Not only does the employee have to go through the process of submitting expense forms when lumped with extra charges, they also have to wait for the money to be reimbursed. As for the company, this process is often much more expensive in the long run than a business mobile plan.

Individual rates rarely offer the cost-effective solution that bulk purchases as a result of an efficient business mobile plan can offer. You can pay less on a per user basis if you pick the right tariff – and we’re here to help you with that!

At Telecom Solu7ions, we have many years of experience, which means we are able to guarantee customers the best possible mobile tariffs for your staff. You’ll be able to receive one comprehensive bill rather than several different expense claims!

business mobilesThey’re a mark of professionalism

A business mobile is a distraction-free alternative to a personal phone, which will often be buzzing with Facebook notifications and personal texts.

The aforementioned flexibility that comes with business mobile plans is a great way of showing your customers the value of your business and the service you provide. If you’re able to respond to your customers via emails and calls at different times of the day (including out of hours), you’ll stand out in your competitive industry.

If your customers are calling an empty office landline to no avail, you’ll lose their trust and the positive perception that they already have of you. You’ll risk looking unprofessional which may be incredibly detrimental. Business mobiles however will give your customers the perception that you’re always on hand to help them and answer their queries.

 

Let your employees take their office on the move with business mobile packages from Telecom Solu7ions

In 1979, IBM was announced to be one of the first fortune 500 companies who allowed employees to work remotely, IBM found their system to be so successful, by 2009 40% of their 386,000 employees worked from the comfort of their own homes. So it’s not all doom and gloom, working from home can have a very positive impact on your business! Here at Telecom Solu7ions, we have listed our 7 life hacks on how to increase productivity when working from home.

1. Get ready!

Go and put on some real pants. It’s very easy to fall into the trap of rolling out of bed and straight onto the computer/laptop. However, changing into a ‘work’ friendly outfit will help with your routine and mindset. You’re also better prepared for when the postman turns up at your door or you get a surprise Zoom call from your boss!

2. Make sure you have reliable business mobiles

This one is key to successfully working from home! There’s nothing worse than losing connection in the middle of a call or being overcharged for the current business mobiles that you are using. At Telecom Solu7ions we can take care of all your communication needs by either auditing your existing business mobiles plan or starting you a fresh one with the best phones and deals on the market.

3. Set some ground rules

Just because you are working from home does not mean you have to do all of the housework. If you are taking breaks, this does not mean you have to clean the house during those breaks. Try to actually use them as breaks wherever possible! Set yourself boundaries so that you know that between certain hours you are dedicated to working, even if you take small coffee breaks and sanity checks in between!

4. Check your broadband connectivity

This might seem like an obvious one, but to be able to work from home effectively your business broadband needs to be reliable and fast. There are various products available to meet the needs of different sizes of enterprises, and with the ever-changing rules and regulations, we can audit your business at any time to see if your broadband connectivity is up to scratch. 

5. Meal preparation

It can be so easy to snack all day, sip coffee, munch on Doritos… it hits 5 o’clock and you’re starving, so you go to raid the kitchen or call a takeaway! Sound familiar? Try to plan what you eat and when you eat it – you could even set alarms on your phone/laptop to remind you.

6. Invest in you workspace

This could be something as simple as popping a nice photo-frame on your desk or investing in an LED ring light to make your video calls really POP!

7. Check in with your team

Last but not least, check in with your team. Whether it’s a 5-minute call daily or a weekly 1-hour call, make sure your team has a regular slot where the team can catch up. The more consistent you are with when you communicate with your team, the more easily this can become part of their daily/weekly routine.

There you have it, 7 of our top tips for working from home tips that can shape you into being a better remote worker!

At Telecom Solu7ions, we offer a range of business broadband solutions that cater to many different businesses. Find out why fast internet is extremely beneficial for your business on our blog below.

It enables you to provide better customer service

If your system keeps failing, the implications of this can be huge, resulting in lost sales as well as a drop in customer trust. Decreased workflow as a result of inadequate internet can give off a sense of unprofessionalism to your important customer base as well as make you look weaker than your competitors.

On the other hand, if your business has quick internet speeds, you’re able to respond to queries from your customers as fast as possible in order to provide them with a better service. Generally, business broadband speeds are faster than residential ones, meaning you won’t have to worry about letting your customers down.

Faster speeds means greater staff efficiency and workflow

Staff productivity will always suffer if they’re not provided with adequate tools to complete tasks. Research shows that people in Britain lose several days a year because of slow-running technology at work. Fast and reliable internet solutions in your workplace will stop the frustrations that stem from poor internet connectivity. Whether you’re in an important video conference call or simply sending an email, we know how disruptive it can be when your office internet crashes or leaves employees with the dreaded buffering logo.

Never suffer that drop in motivation that poor internet speeds can result in when staff are trying to get on with important work. Whether they’re collaborating on projects in shared files or simply researching online, we’ll make sure that your employees are able to work from the most efficient internet connections possible.

There are packages to suit different needs

We understand that no two businesses are the same, which is why we are dedicated to finding the perfect supplier to suit your particular company’s needs – whatever they may be. It’s always important that you’re not either: 1. Paying too much for broadband speeds that aren’t required for your company OR 2. Suffering the effects from a slow internet package that isn’t sufficient for your needs.

Arrange a call with us today and we will be able to talk through your requirements and budget for your business broadband needs.

We understand that running a small business can be costly, so we have a broadband solution that will fit your budget. With most things you sign-up to, there’s a minimum contract term, but with Connect Broadband you can take it for as long as you need it, with no tie-in.

Put your business connectivity in the hands of a supplier you can trust.

The improvements in technology have fuelled an industry of apps, games, and digital photography, which continues to grow every day, while advancements in the graphics themselves have pushed on the expansions in technology further, creating an evolution like no other. This is why Telecom Solutions are providing businesses with the Cat S61. Cat branded business mobiles have been around for 10 years at this point, so I think we can boil your thoughts down to three simple sentences; yes it’s the tractor company, yes they’re made for people with rough and tumble jobs and yes we have seen a lot of this tech before.

What Sets Cat Phones Apart?

When it comes to choosing your business mobiles, Cat phones are different but in a good way. We are used to slim, slick phones with fragile screens, and in the long run, we steal from our savings to repair the damages, we can make all these problems disappear by giving you hands-on access to the well-rounded, rugged Cat S61 which is the upgraded very popular Cat 60, one of the most durable phones on the market. The S60 was very beneficial for tradesmen, from electricians, firefighters, plumbers to vets! However, they’re back with a bang with the S61 which is top of the market due to its unimaginable new features;

  • Powerful thermal camera
  • Incredible screen resolution
  • Can be held 3 meters underwater for 1 hour
  • Tested to mil std 810G of durability
  • Protected covers over ports (keeps mud and sore dust out of the phone)
  • Air quality monitor (every 30 seconds)
  • Range finder (measures distance)

Another significant feature which the phone has is its integrated FLIR thermal imaging system which provides a role in elevated skin temperature screening.

The Cat S61 smartphone can identify elevated temperature in a busy crowd which is absolutely crucial for public and workplace settings.
