Successful businesses run much differently today than those in the past. Technology has changed the way communications and all other functions of the organization occur.
One technological advancement that has truly changed the business world is mobile communications. No longer having to be tethered to a desk all day or located in a central office has helped companies to ensure operations run smoothly, no matter where employees or management need to be.
Wireless phone systems make it possible for businesses to increases sales and improve the sharing of data as communications taking place over email, IM or via a wireless phone system can occur even though business professionals are not in front of their desk.
For both large and small businesses, the use of wireless phone systems saves on costs and maximizes the efficiency of all users.
Wireless phone systems not only guarantee users are always available, but with devices like the Treo, for example, multitasking, calendaring and communications eliminate the need for paper reminders and allow business users to remain productive at all times.
Many wireless phone system plans include free mobile-to-mobile calling so employees can talk with one another without worrying about expensive phone bills and some offerings come with walkie-talkie features which puts team members in touch with one another even faster.
A study by CTIA- The Wireless Association, notes businesses can stay positive even during current economic uncertainties thanks to the benefits provided by wireless broadband technology.
According to the report, the 68.8 million U.S. enterprise users (25 percent) who had mobile wireless services in 2005 will increase to 81.9 million (83 percent) by 2016.
"At a time when America is in the midst of an economic pinch, more and more employers are turning to wireless broadband technology to help reduce costs, increase efficiency and productivity, and stay competitive in the marketplace," said CTIA (News - Alert) President and CEO Steve Largent.
