Everyone thought it was mind-blowing when laptops arrived on the scene. It seems we’re starting to be even more impressed by smartphone technology. Maybe it’s because they’re so small you can carry them anywhere 24 hours per day.
There is no doubt the technology is going to continue changing businesses. In fact, if you look closely it’s already happening before your eyes.
Apps Will Let You Work from Anywhere
Imagine you’re stuck in Australia and everyone at work is about to jump on a conference call. Luckily, the NBN plans provide you with great speed. If you have the right app you’ll be able to join the conversation.
Nobody will realize you’re on a smartphone halfway around the world. Obviously there are much more apps than video conferencing ones. Unfortunately, if we started to list all of them it would take weeks.
Security Is Always a Huge Concern
Certain companies have always been wary of letting employees carry out work on phones. After all, if you lost it someone would be able to steal the sensitive information within hours. That is not the case in 2018.
FaceID and TouchID will make it impossible for anyone to get into your phone. You’ll obviously have to make sure you’re using the newest models. Data can also be backed up in the cloud for extra protection.
VoIP Calls Will Always Be Cheaper
Ask any employer from a few decades ago how much they paid every month to telephone companies. It would have been a decent chunk of their monthly expenses. Now we have VoIP and it’s nowhere near as pricey.
In most cases, individuals will be able to call people anywhere for free. Another big benefit is being able to speak with clients face-to-face. Everyone knows it’s the easiest way to close more deals.
It’s Easy When Working on the Move
A lot of your work will involve typing, which wasn’t always possible on a phone. There are a couple of reasons for this. Firstly, screens used to be small and now they’re almost the same size as tablet computers.
The touch screen sensitivity on a phone was lacking too. It’s come on leaps and bounds in newer models. Apparently, you can type on some screens while wearing gloves. These two features mean you never really leave the office.
You’ll Save Tons of Money on Equipment
Once again, Bentley have used a smartphone to shoot one of their commercials. It was the iPhone 6 Plus in case you were wondering. That phone is now a few generations old and isn’t too expensive to purchase.
One of the most luxurious car brands in the world can shoot videos on a phone. There is no reason why you can’t do the same thing, especially these days because the phone cameras are a hundred times better.
Dealing with a Large Fleet of Vehicles
If a company had a large fleet of vehicles there was only so many things you could know about them. Until certain technology came around you would have no idea where they were. If drivers have phones the GPS will now let you know.
Not only can you keep track of your vehicles, but you can deal with things like safety too. You’ll be able to know how fast vehicles are driving, so the technology can help you reprimanded irresponsible drivers.
You Need to Start Using Smartphones
Anyone with a business needs to learn how to use smartphones effectively in order to boost profits. We’ve touched on a few specific ways they can help you, but there are so many more possibilities out there. Wait around and you’ll end up regretting it.
