What are the top considerations when purchasing a business mobile solution?

Line rental

A quick search will return extensive different line rental tariffs. You should be looking for one that’s competitive but that doesn’t compromise on service.

Equipment costs

Mobile devices can range widely in price. You need to be looking for a provider that offers flexible options so that you never overpay for devices.

Call/Data Costs

The needs of your mobile users will differ so look for bundle options that offer predictable monthly budgeting and keep your call costs to a minimum.

Quality of service

Many organisations will opt to select the biggest brands when buying business mobile solutions however this isn’t necessarily the best route and can be very restrictive. Smaller mobile solutions providers typically provide a dedicated team that ensure you a consistently high level of service.

Network coverage

One size doesn’t necessarily fit all. Choose a provider that covers all of the three major UK networks to ensure you have the best possible coverage to meet your users’ needs.

One single invoice

Selecting a specialist mobile provider should also make administration a far simpler process. You should look for a provider that can supply one single invoice and one single point of contact.

How much time should you allow when switching to a business mobile solutions provider?

Switching should be a simple and trouble-free process but planning ahead is highly recommended. Your chosen provider should be able to guide you through this process step by step.  Timescales will vary depending on the scale of the project, but you should allow from 2 -10 days for the process to be completed.

Remember if you are switching provider and a PAC is required this can take up to 10 days to generate from the networks.
