In today’s fast-paced business world, mobile technology is indispensable, and business mobiles have evolved significantly over the years, transforming from simple communication tools into powerful productivity enhancers.
Smartphones have revolutionised the way we work and according to recent statistics, more than 3.6 billion people use smartphones globally. At the start of 2022, there were 71.8 million mobile connections in the UK, an increase of 3.8% from 2021. This is most likely down to the fact that more people have more than one connection registered to them, e.g. one for work and one for personal.
Mobiles really have become the lifeline for many businesses, enabling employees to stay connected and productive no matter their location. So, how do you make the most out of mobiles in the business environment?
The advantages of business mobiles
Mobiles have become a steady presence in the workplace, and for good reason. The pandemic woke people up to the benefits of mobilising the workforce. Not only did employees realise the benefits of an improved work/life balance but employers also realised that a remote team could offer significant benefits.
Having business mobiles as part of the wider business technology inventory allows organisations to experience a range of advantages, including:
- Flexibility – businesses can look to recruit from further afield, and employees and employers can create working patterns to suit them.
- Improved communications – mobiles allow employees to be contactable wherever they are and have access to the same communication tools as though they’re in the office.
- Productivity and efficiency – employee workflow is uninterrupted, and productivity is maintained when staff have access to everything they need via their business mobile.
What employees want
Expectations from employees have changed, they are no longer satisfied with basic communication features and tools. Employees need the right tools to be able to multitask, work on the go and keep up with demanding, fast paced workloads.
Employees, particularly on the go or remote ones, need seamless access to their emails, calendars, and collaboration tools.
What employers want
So, we’ve touched upon what employees might expect, but what about employers? Employers obviously seek to meet the needs of their employees whilst providing excellent customer service. But they will also be thinking about the costs, management, and security risks that will be incurred when managing a mobile workforce.
Business mobiles aren’t as simple as just handing out devices to the team. Organisations need to be able to manage these devices, ensure they’re secure, and be able to track their expenses effectively.
