How Smartphones Can Improve Businesses

By Rizwan Ahmad - 23 March 2016 No Comments
Smartphones are here to stay, and they can play a part in how businesses are run. Here is how that can happen.

Working on the Go
These days, there are apps that can be used to sync your desktop work with your smartphone. That means that being away from your desk doesn’t have to mean that you fall behind on work. Instead, you can work on the go and stay up to date with all your tasks and admin no matter where you are. This is a huge boost for any manager or business owner that has to move around a lot and spend time away from the central office of the company.

You don’t even have to mess around transferring data from your computer to your phone. The best apps will simply do all the syncing for you. As long as you have a good data plan on your smartphone, this can be great.

Continual Social Media Interaction
Social media is something that you have to pay close attention to if you want to grow your customer base. People like to interact with businesses on these platforms. And, for many people, the first time they come across a new company will be on a social media platform.

That’s why it’s so important to keep the business’s social media accounts up to date at all times. You need to be posting on Facebook and tweeting on Twitter throughout the day.

One person, or a group of people, can be given control of the company social media account. They can then keep the interaction going at all times. Make sure you trust the people who are given this responsibility though.

Accept Orders on an App
More and more people are buying things on the internet. This is something that is being driven by the increase in mobile browsing, so you need to be a part of it. Rather than just having a website on which people can buy items, you also need to have an app.

This makes it so much easier for people to browse what you have to offer on their smartphones. There is no need for them to even visit your regular website.

You can get a professional to set up a secure app for your company. The app will also need to accept credit cards in a way that is both swift and safe. People don’t like to take risks when it comes to handing over the financial details online, so put security first.

Internal Communications
Every business needs to communicate effectively. This is not something that is done with customers though. Internal communication is just as important. You don’t want your employees to waste time in the office sending messages back and forth and not getting fast replies. But smartphones can really help with this.

By simply having an app that can work as a messaging service and as a kind of message board for the whole office, a lot of time can be saved. An app like Slack allows you to do this. You can monitor what messages are being sent between employees to make sure that the system is not being exploited.
