Those who work within an office setting know how often they use the telephone to communicate. In a business world run mainly by e-mail, those phone calls are essential, but can become a distraction during the work day. When your office phone rings, you must stop whatever project you were working on to answer and hold the phone. As you conduct your conversation, you may need to ask a team member a question, which means placing the client on hold to leave your desk. Because you are limited to your desk by a cord and handheld device, phone calls tend to harm productivity at times rather than increase it.
When it comes to growing a small business, mobility has become a key factor. In previous years, time and money has been spent on providing devices along with technology training for employees. Once the devices were distributed for use by the business, time was then spent on monitoring the devices to ensure they are being used properly. In today’s business world, employees are more willing to bring in their own devices, such as cellular phones, laptops, and tablets, to the office. Businesses no longer need to spend the time or money to train their employees or purchase devices, which means that time and money can be spent helping to grow the business. Mobility as an option with your business also comes with a number of other benefits as well. These benefits include:
- Productivity- Employees are able to complete work without being physically in the office. The ability to access documents, contact information, and e-mails allow more to get done in less time.
- Money- Mobility allows employees to stay connected to clients no matter where they are located. By eliminating the need to travel, businesses are saving money on travel expenses along with saving time that would have been wasted during travel. Should travel still be necessary, employees still have the ability to work during travel.
- Customers- Mobility allows customers and clients to stay connected to your employees at all times. This eliminates the feeling of being pushed aside or forgotten by customers and will help strengthen the relationship your business has with its customers.
