Breakfast Briefing: How To Effectively Manage Your Business’ Mobile Spend
The smartphone has dramatically changed the mobile landscape in the last 15 years, but many organisations are still engaging with their carrier’s airtime using the same models from that long ago! Just as the devices themselves have transformed, so has the need to adapt the models used for procuring airtime and devices.
Carrier deals can often be confusing and complex. Whilst initially you may feel you’ve been provided with a great deal from a carrier, they have in fact locked you into an inflexible contract for 3 or 4 years with no room for manoeuvre should the market place change. The mobile market is susceptible to new developments and advancements such as 5G, whereby data usage is expected to rapidly double, which will have significant impacts upon static fixed contracts.
Business employees are prone to breaching usage allowances, uncontrolled roaming and companies paying for unused services, bill shock is commonplace, costing businesses far over-the-odds and profiting the mobile networks.
It’s time to take back control of your mobile spending
On Wednesday 20th March at The Mercer, Threadneedle Street we were joined by industry professionals for a full English breakfast and talks on how you can release 20% or more from your mobile budget. The agenda covered:
- Why businesses overspend on mobiles
- How carriers secretly generate excess profits
- Why tech funds cost more than you think
- Why contract terms are as important as tariffs
- Key objectives when negotiating
- Creating your plan
