All companies aren’t alike, their sizes, industries and thus needs differ from one another. When it comes to communication needs, building an objective based plan is imperative for organizations to ensure maximum optimization of utility and cost. Why objective based? Because a strong communication ecosystem helps organizations navigate through gaps and improves efficiency of work. Mobile communication may not have been a novel concept, but with the COVID-19 making face-to-face interactions difficult, has recognized the need and identified the loopholes in a companies’ communication plans.
If the communication plan is built on exacting requirements of the organization, it contributes towards achieving objectives. If not, it can bleed its money.
We identified four major considerations to keep an eye on when building a foolproof, productive, and cost-effective mobile communication plan for your company’s employees.
To determine your business communication needs, you need to find out how you connect with customers, other businesses, and how employees communicate with each other etc. To do this, you can a) analyze three-month old usage patterns, b) analyze the wastage of minutes and MBs.
The first will tell you the exact usage needs of your employees, it will show overuse patterns and their frequency. The second will highlight where you can make cuts to save money or reroute to save overuse.
If you are a business branched in multiple locations, it is important to know if your service provider covers all locations or at least most locations. If your employees are required to travel frequently, it is important that they get coverage on-the-go. If they travel internationally, it is important that your service provider has a good quality infrastructure of a ‘visited’ network. As a rule of thumb, go with the operator with most coverage across the country.
for other businesses, that are more localized and doesn’t require constant remote connections, they can rely on a network that gives good coverage in the local area, regardless of its performance across the country.
When you’re choosing a mobile plan for your employees, you are ultimately giving employees access to company information through their mobile devices. To protect company data in this case, you need extra levels of security. For instance, you can issue company-owned smartphones that let you control nearly every aspect of how your employees use the device, including which apps they can install and which options they can select. You can also perform a remote wipe of the mobile device when the employee resigns or is terminated. On the other hand, you can let them use their mobile devices but secure it using special mobile device management software such as Samsung Knox, a business security platform that keeps work data encrypted and separated from personal activity. This way, you can buy an all-inclusive mobile plan for your employees without having to worry about data security.
Price is a big factor in many businesses’ buying consideration process. You should receive the best value for your investment. Research prices and perks of companies that qualify the first two. But don’t just rely on cost, look into after sale support, discount mechanisms, add-ons, and customer relationship strategies. Service providers that serve B2B customers usually have all of the above but differ in quality, sometimes the smallest things as the response time of sales over a downtime can cost your business big bucks – spending a little extra pennies to ensure these minute details might save you from bigger costs. Within the realm of reason, evaluate service providers on all these metrics.
