Choosing the Right Mobile Phone Solution for Your Business
As more and more work is completed on-the-go, it’s important for businesses to provide their employees with a reliable and efficient mobile phone solution. However, with so many options available, it can be challenging to select the right one for your organisation. In this post, we’ll explore the different types of mobile phone solutions available and provide guidance on how to choose the best solution for your business.
Types of Mobile Phone Solutions
As a Telstra partner, there are three main types of mobile phone solutions that we can help your business with: company-provided devices, bring your own device (BYOD) policies, and mobile device management (MDM) solutions.
- Company-provided devices: In this approach, businesses provide their employees with mobile devices to use for work-related purposes. This can include smartphones, tablets, and laptops. This approach allows businesses to have more control over the devices and the data that’s stored on them, but it can be expensive and time-consuming to manage and maintain the devices.
- BYOD policies: With a BYOD policy, employees are allowed to use their personal devices for work-related purposes. This can save businesses money on device costs, but it can also create security risks if the devices aren’t properly secured and managed.
- MDM solutions: MDM solutions allow businesses to manage and secure mobile devices, whether they’re company-provided or employee-owned. This approach provides businesses with more control and visibility over the devices and the data that’s stored on them.
Choosing the Right Solution
When choosing a mobile phone solution for your business, there are several factors to consider:
- Security: Security should be a top priority when selecting a mobile phone solution. You want to ensure that your devices and data are protected from cyber threats and that your employees are following best practices for security.
- Cost: You’ll want to consider the upfront and ongoing costs associated with each solution, including device costs, data plans, and management costs.
- Employee productivity: Your mobile phone solution should enable your employees to work efficiently and effectively, whether they’re in the office or on-the-go.
- Management and maintenance: You’ll need to consider how easy it is to manage and maintain your mobile phone solution, whether you’re providing devices or allowing BYOD.
- Compliance: Depending on your industry, you may need to comply with certain regulations around data storage and security. Make sure your mobile phone solution meets these requirements.
