Here’s six things we recommend you consider when choosing a business mobile phone contract
1. Look at mixed mobile network estate options for maximum network coverage
When selecting a business mobile phone contract, consider the network options available. The ability to have a mixed estate across O2, Vodafone, and EE is a win-win solution to an ongoing battle of coverage issues.
Additionally, for critical data needs multiple networks on one Data Only SIM card can provide added redundancy and increased connectivity options. Enabling your mobile devices to seamlessly switch between different networks based on signal strength and availability. This feature ensures uninterrupted connectivity, particularly in areas with limited coverage or during network outages, enhancing the reliability of your mobile services.
EE mobile phone contract benefits
Opus are one of seven EE partners in the UK. EE is a mobile network that is best known for its exceptional coverage unrivalled by any other mobile network provider, making it the perfect choice for businesses that value staying connected.
EE mobile’s 5G capability provides faster download and upload speeds, greater capacity, and reduced latency for business users. This leads to improved productivity, particularly for businesses that rely on video conferencing, large file transfers or cloud-based services. Additionally, 5G roaming included in EE’s business mobile plans enables employees to stay connected and productive when travelling abroad.
Vodafone mobile contract benefits
Vodafone is considered one of the best mobile networks for business due to their roaming proposition which benefits organisations with users who regularly travel abroad or work from different locations.
O2 business mobile contract benefits
Similar to Vodafone, O2 business mobile contracts offer an excellent roaming proposition. Depending on user coverage needs, Opus provide O2 contracts for organisations looking to implement a mixed estate, made up of O2, Vodafone and EE under one simple, easy to manage contract billed monthly.
2. Prioritise mobile cyber security
Prioritising mobile cyber security above all else is critical. With the increasing number of cyber threats, it is essential to ensure that the contract provides robust security measures to safeguard sensitive business information and prevent unauthorised access. Look for features such as encrypted communication channels, secure authentication protocols, and regular software updates to protect your mobile devices and data from potential breaches.
Mobile Device Management (MDM) software like Microsoft Intune to remotely manage and secure devices, mitigating the risk of breaches and ensuring GDPR compliance. Owning the mobile contract allows you to exert control over devices, remotely lock and wipe them, and implement additional security measures against phishing and smishing attacks, where users are tricked into replying to texts and sharing personal information.
3. Ensure there is a level of business mobile contract flexibility
Flexibility in contracts is another crucial aspect to consider. A mobile business contract should offer options that cater to your specific needs and enable you to adjust your services as your business requirements change. Look for business mobile contracts that allow you to easily upgrade or downgrade your plans, add or remove features, and provide transparent pricing structures that align with your budget and usage patterns.
4. Make sure international mobile roaming rates are competitive
Intelligent roaming options are essential for businesses with international operations or frequent travellers. Ensure that the mobile business contract offers seamless connectivity across different countries and networks. This allows your employees to stay connected wherever they go. Look for contracts that provide competitive roaming rates, extensive coverage, and reliable data speeds to avoid any disruptions to your business communications.
5. Consider industry standard mobile device management
Device as a Service (DaaS) is a comprehensive solution that provides businesses with a convenient and efficient way to manage their device infrastructure. One of the key features of DaaS is hotstaging, which involves building devices to clients’ specific requirements. This process ensures that each device is tailored to the user’s needs, reducing setup time and enhancing productivity.
Along with hotstaging, DaaS also includes the onboarding of Mobile Device Management (MDM) systems, which enable centralised control and management of devices. This approach simplifies device administration, allowing IT teams to efficiently handle software updates, security protocols, and app installations.
6. Ensure reporting and user analytics are accessible
Having real-time visibility of your mobile usage is essential for effective cost management and resource allocation. Look for business mobile contracts that provide comprehensive reporting and analytics tools, allowing you to monitor and analyse your mobile usage patterns. Real-time visibility enables you to identify any inefficiencies, optimise usage, and make informed decisions regarding plan adjustments or device allocation, leading to cost savings and improved operational efficiency.
