Business mobiles

Business mobiles are more important than ever before, with the majority of UK workforces working remotely either full or part time. Not only can your business mobiles enable your team to be contacted anytime, anywhere, but they can be twinned with your business phone system, ensuring your team has access to everything they need via their smartphone. Here we discuss the features that make your business mobile so important.

A camera on the go

Now that meetings are being held remotely, and documents can’t always be seen face to face, the camera on your smartphone plays a big role. Not only can you partake in video conferences with your teams on the go, but you can utilise the camera function to send photos, documents and parts at the touch of a button.

The use of your business mobile’s camera function can be used externally too. Your marketing department can share photos of products on social media and your website to ensure your customers are kept updated thanks to the fantastic camera quality you’ll find in a business mobile.

Being able to video conference using your smartphone will save your team time and money as your team members are able to join from wherever they’re working. Should they be at a client’s site and need the team’s input, they can quickly log in to a video conferencing platform such as Enreach Meetings.  While businesses are still encouraged to work from home wherever possible, providing your teams with business mobiles will ensure they don’t have to travel to attend meetings as they can join from the safety of their home offices.

Less stress on your home broadband

Now that the majority of families have multiple people working from home, and more children at home at one time using broadband for things like gaming, browsing and streaming, home broadband connections are likely to be struggling. But, with a business mobile, your team will be able to stay connected regardless of their home broadband thanks to wireless hotspots. A wireless hotspot will use the data from your smartphone to connect to other devices that you may need to work from, for example your laptop.

A mobile’s wireless hotspot can benefit teams when working on the road as well as employees will still be able to connect securely. So, whether you need that last-minute email, or you have a quick question about where a document is saved, staying in touch with your employees will be easy with a business mobile.

Collaboration is key

Collaborating with your teams while working remotely has been made extremely easy thanks to the variety of platforms and apps available to us. With a business mobile, you’re able to pre-program the phones with so that they’re set up with all of the work appropriate apps your teams require such as; Zoom, Whatsapp, Office 365 and Trello.

Your employees will be able to use an email app on their business mobile to make sure that they never miss an email, plus, they can access the company social media accounts should they need to. It’s important to remember that, as well as the fantastic apps we all enjoy, a simple text or a quick phone call can not only keep teams in the loop but can keep them connected.
