Your phone is your source for news, entertainment, and communication. No matter if you’re using it to be productive or as a distraction, it is a staple item in everyone’s pocket. Since mobile devices are not going anywhere anytime soon, companies need to embrace them in the workplace.
The Global Mobile Consumer Survey (US edition) by Deloitte, said Americans are looking at their mobile devices on average 52 times per day. That number can be alarming to employers who want their employees to have the least amount of distractions at work. But as you can tell from the title of this post, a mobile application has benefits!
Ultimately, installing a mobile application will save your company money. How? Keep reading and I will tell you.
Today, mobile phones are basically a computer. You can make calls, check documents, beat a new level in candy crush and so much more! The opportunities are endless and therefore you might avoid buying your employees a laptop, tablet, and desk phone. The fewer devices you need to supply, the fewer expenses your company will incur. (Bonus: If your mobile application is BYOD friendly, your employees can use their own device!
Although we support a work/life balance, we all know your work phone is never far away. Sometimes you can’t help but check that e-mail or make a quick call. If your customers or coworkers are in another time zone, it may require you to work outside of ‘normal’ working hours. A UC mobile app will allow John to take his late international call at home or help Alyssa get ahead of the day before heading into the office. By providing your employees with the proper tools, your customers will be happier, employees will be more productive and your company will be more successful.
We can all agree that an app on your phone is more convenient to travel with than a desk phone and/or laptop. A UC mobile app allows employees to manage every aspect of day-to-day operations on the go! Employees who travel for work, avoid coming back to an inbox full of voicemails or urgent tasks. They no longer must miss conference calls and prevent long distance charges from piling up. Mobility makes employees more available and connected wherever they are.
