Integration 

Business customers need a phone that can easily collaborate with all other systems in business. Your phone has to integrate with all CRM apps, accounting apps, and productivity tools. It must seamlessly collaborate with IoT. 

How to know what phone is best to integrate into business?

Ecosystem 

If you’re using Macbooks and PCs, going for an iPhone will make integrating with your system easier. Similarly, if most of your tech products are by Google, get a Google phone to integrate well. Android is known for its flexibility so that it can go well with any ecosystem. However, you will have to compromise a bit on security.

Support

A business phone should have a good support system in case of any problems. This includes 24/7 support, online resources, and a knowledge base. 

Customer service should be known for being friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. For instance, Apple is known for being fair and transparent in customer dealings. It is always willing to go the extra mile to help customers resolve their issues.

Security

Look for strong security and privacy features to protect sensitive data. This includes features like encryption, password protection, and remote wipe. 

Closed ecosystem: Apple has a closed ecosystem, which controls its devices’ hardware and software. This gives Apple more control over the security of its devices, as it can vet all of the software available in the App Store. Similarly, Samsung’s enterprise edition offers some amazing security features that are hard to miss.

Regular updates: Releases regular security updates for its devices. These updates often include patches for known vulnerabilities, which can help to protect devices from attacks.

Strong encryption: Encrypts all of the data on its devices by default. This makes it more difficult for attackers to access data on your device, even if they can gain physical access.

User education: Provides users with education on security best practices. This helps users to understand how to protect their devices from attack.

Biometric authentication: Has reliable, fast, and highly calibrated authentication methods.

Network Coverage

Last but certainly not least. Your ultimate business phone needs a great network to work with.  

What makes coverage the best?

  • Good value for money, great plans and benefits.
  • Excellent coverage with full signal strength. 
  • Excellent customer support 

What are the best networks to go for?

In Somerset, the four big networks: Vodafone, EE, Three, and O2, will be great to go for. But when it comes to business,  we have a clear winner: Vodafone.
