Phones, while necessary to business operations, aren’t cheap. That’s why it’s important to take a certain set of steps so you can save and still get a quality phone that won’t break after a few months or a year.
- Determine Your Needs
Consider where your employees will be traveling and the types of customers they will be talking to. Do they really need a front-facing camera or would it be more beneficial for them to have a phone that is known for its durability? Better yet, consider what types of phones your clients use; you will want them to be able to exchange files, contact details, and other information easily.
- Research The Options
Before you begin to research your options, it is best to have a desired brand in mind, otherwise the options can be overwhelming. There are many cellphone rating websites out there, and some of the best are www.engadget.com, www.pcmag.com, and www.cnet.com. These websites can help guide you to a mobile device that hits the sweet spot in terms of reliability and tech-savviness.
- Negotiate with your Carrier
Often, carriers can provide lower-cost or no-cost devices if you can accurately project device types, when the devices will be needed, and how many. The carriers have wiggle room on End-of-life Devices and Refurbished devices that may not fit for others, but would be the perfect low-cost option for you. Also, consider upgrading the device and extending the agreement and you will likely be able to get subsidized pricing on the device.
