Mobile devices are fast becoming the go-to business arsenal when it comes to managing business transactions, accounting functions and event job placement.
With the onslaught of technology, is it any wonder that things like iPads and smartphones are becoming the norm when providing a quote to a client or even taking payment for a service performed?
7 Reasons Why You Should Use Mobile in Your Business:
- Mobile devices are cost effective pieces of equipment. You can pick up an iPad for under $500 or bundle it with a smartphone for about the same price. You won’t need to upgrade either of these items for a good 2-3 years. Compare this with continuously having to purchase pads, pens and paper!
- Mobile devices allow your business to become portable. You can show clients presentations, book jobs and provide quotes all while out on the road.
- Stick with the same brand of mobile device and you can sync across all your devices to allow for seamless data integration. Update one thing, and it will update across all your devices!
- Customisability! You can customise your devices in anyway your want. You can choose what apps to put on your devices and you can restrict your employees with the apps they load onto business devices. Bottom line – you have the control!
- Your payment system is with you no matter where you are. If you utilise a mobile device and a suitable app, you will be able to take payments while on the road. This is perfect for people in trades, such as plumbers, builders and hairdressers.
- With some applications, you’ll be able to have someone in the office assigning jobs while you’re out on the road, or while the rest of your staff are out – this means increased productivity and less down-time between jobs. The jobs will come through to your mobile device instantly!
- If you are in the creative space, making use of things like an iPad to showcase your paintings or photography means you never have to worry about physically carrying any of your artwork with you – with the ability to take payments there and then and have the artwork shipped immediately, all from the comfort of the location you happen to be in!
