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!

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.

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.
