Stay connected and use the most of the tools and technology available to business owners.

The adage of many successful small businesses used to be ‘location, location, location’ however that has now been superseded by ‘connection, connection, connection’ as mobile technology solutions means a business is no longer confined to a bricks-and-mortar location.

Get the right tool for the job

Choosing the right mobile phone and tablet should come down to the style and operating system. Select phones and tablets on the same platform (whether Apple, Android or Windows) so your devices can work together.

Apps are not just for fun. Industries now have ‘industrial grade’ business specific apps that can make your mobile or tablet an invaluable member of your team. 

Lose the cables and play in the Cloud

Once you have the right devices, the next step is to make the most of your mobility by working in the Cloud. You can access all your files and programs from any computer, tablet, phone or laptop when you’re out and about. 

Share the fun with Mobile Broadband
