Most workforces these days have to be flexible and digital and mobile communications are usually a must. If you are setting up a mobile communications network for your business, getting the right network and business tariff is hugely important. You’ll also want to be secure, whether you buy SSL for mobile or a complete mobile management and security suite.
Choosing the best – or at least the most suitable – handsets can also have a big impact on how your people are able to communicate and work. There are a bewildering number of brands and handsets out there and what works for one company or individual role might not always be best suited to another.
Here, though, are 4 of the best to consider:
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Screen size is a common issue when it comes to working on your Smartphone and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is leading the charge of the super-sized handsets. With a 5.7-inch HD display and stylus, it falls somewhere between the average Smartphone and a tablet. The stylus is particularly handy for business use that requires accurate drawing on the go but it can also be used to work quickly and accurately on emails and other written documents.
This might be a smaller handset but it certainly doesn’t lack power. Just as PCs and Macs have their champions, there are those who insist on the iPhone. They’re always smart and stylish and the unparalleled access to useful apps and virtual assistant Siri make the 5S a great choice for businesses with a big enough budget.
BlackBerry used to be the must-have brand in the business world. The Canadian manufacturer is no longer so ubiquitous but the Z30 proves they can produce a touchscreen Smartphone with the best of them. Old-school BlackBerry-addicts will miss the keyboard but the BB10 operating system has a lot of nice features, including the communication hub.
Nokia Lumia 1520
Windows phones have their pros and cons but there’s no denying that being able to sync Microsoft Office software seamlessly to the cloud, allowing you to easily move documents and other work between computer and phone, is a great option to have. This is another supersized phone, with a whopping 6-inch screen. It might ruin the line of a few pockets but can cut down the need for carrying tablets or even laptops, depending what needs to be accomplished on the move.
