For many business owners, mobile phones are seen as a hindrance to productivity as they provide distractions to the workforce. But with the ability to direct your work line straight to your personal mobile phone, there are numerous ways that it can positively impact your productivity. In this article, we will be looking into just how efficient combining your work and personal phones can be.
One of the biggest benefits of having a combined work and personal phone is the increase in productivity. With emails and phone calls being answered at a push of a button, you can ensure maximum productivity even when they are out of the office. This is particularly important for sales reps and heads of department as it will ensure no email or phone call is missed that could be important.
Keeps People Connected When Working Away On Business
If you are an owner of a large corporation, keeping everyone connected when they are away on business is what is needed to ensure maximum productivity. Therefore, implementing a BYOD contract for all work devices will mean that those traveling on business have access to their work line. This is beneficial for not only internal communication but also client phone calls as it means they can get in touch regardless of where your team is in the world. This is great for huge corporations as it also allows meetings to be scheduled from across different time zones.
Reduces The Risk Of Not Charging
Another common problem, when faced with having two phones, is remembering to charge your second device. With a number of us leaving our work phones in our briefcases or bags, this is the perfect time to reduce the risk of forgetting to charge the device when it runs out of battery. This, therefore, means that valuable calls can be missed in this downtime. Though this is only a small percentage of employees that struggle with this, this can have a huge effect on the company’s annual turnover. Therefore, combining work and personal mobile phones will ensure that both of them remain charged at all times.
Ensures Emails Are Answered Throughout The Day
When working on a computer in the office it is easy to answer your emails as it is all there in front of you. But with a vast number of emails coming through in the evening, having them there on your phone can help to improve productivity. Whether it is on the commute home in the evening or to work in the morning, this can help you to be more productive and ensure all emails are answered before heading into the office. Though this is not favored by some, this is a simple way of staying I touch with clients and colleagues even when you are out of the office.
Whether you are a small business or a large corporation looking to improve communication, we are sure that these mobile phone systems can benefit you. Which of these will you be choosing?
