To survive in today’s highly competitive and economically harsh conditions, businesses of any size must focus on maximizing efficiency and keeping communications consistent. Because more and more employees are hitting the road to gain customers and offer better services than their competitors, it is essential that businesses support their communications needs, even when they are outside of the office’s walls.
New research from Aberdeen (News - Alert) Group on enterprise mobility entitled, "More Mobility - Less Budget: Enterprise Strategies in the Current Economic Downturn," finds that companies will either continue to maintain or increase their level of mobility support.
"We are continuing to see a rapid uptake in mobility initiatives across a broad range of industries." said Melanie Gray, CEO at Movero Technology, a managed IT services provider and co-sponsor of the report.
"From healthcare to higher education to even large automotive dealership networks, it is increasingly rare to find an organization that doesn't have some level of mobility initiative in place today."
Businesses are moving to wireless phone systems and vendors who offer solutions tailored for their needs. From email to IM and mobile phone calls, users need to stay connected while on the go more than ever. Through wireless phone systems, they no longer need to be tethered to their desks and can remain productive and efficient whether they’re in the office or out in the field.
A recent VendorGuru.com article, How Mobile Business Phone Service Works for Business, highlights the benefits wireless phone systems can provide and why.
As mobile devices have been improved drastically over the years, portability becomes an attractive benefit for mobile business users. Smartphones and handheld devices replace bulky laptops that employees once needed to lug around whenever they left the office. These new device include the ability to communicate, schedule appointments and access important information, all from one device.
Mobile communications capabilities also mean that employees can keep in touch with their colleagues no matter where they’re located. Some wireless providers even offer free mobile-to-mobile calling or walkie-talkie features to keep employees connected and costs low.
Above all, the ability for your workforce to stay connected and communicating beyond the physical location of the office means staying ahead of the competition today and into the future. Choosing a wireless business solutions provider that offers services to meet your company’s specific needs is critical.
