For small and growing businesses, new telecoms technology offers a number of options for better managing your company’s mobile phone charges. You can offload calls from your mobile network, save thousands and give up none of the convenience.
Spending on mobile devices and communications is growing as more and more people demand anytime-anywhere access to each other. Consider this: while economic data shows personal consumption expenditures from 2007 to 2010 (including the heart of the economic turndown) slowed to a modest 2.9% growth, spending on mobile devices increased at a 17% rate. The growing cost of mobile telephony is getting the attention of anyone who worries about budgets, as well it should…
In business, it’s estimated that well over half of all mobile minute usage occurs within the halls and walls of the enterprise, where alternate solutions exist and where a user’s desk phone may be only a couple of feet away.
So what can your business do to cut the cost of your business mobile phone and still take advantage of the productivity benefits it offers? For small and growing businesses, new telecoms solutions offer a number of options for better managing your company’s mobile phone charges:
- New telecoms technology allows you to handle incoming mobile calls on landline phones. You can pre-configure the system to push the mobile call to a ‘free’ landline phone in real time.
- Telephone systems make it easy for employees to ‘business-enable’ their personal phones if and when required. No client needs to be downloaded; you can simply enlist your personal device for business use when needed (e.g., to use enterprise dialing or search the corporate directory). The business does not have to pay for the cost of the mobile device and the user gets to keep their preferred device.
- Many enterprises have Wi-Fi or WLAN networks allowing employees to stay mobile within their workplace. Wi-Fi hotspots are also commonplace in many public places such as airports, hotels, coffee shops, etc. the user can move all communications over Wi-Fi. For a business traveler, this can result in large savings.
