With Small Business Saturday on the horizon, it’s a great time to reflect on how much mobile devices have become part of managing a small business. With the growing adoption of LTE and highly sophisticated mobile apps, there are now so many opportunities for business owners to reduce infrastructure costs by a wide margin.
In fact you can practically manage an entire business from a smartphone. They can be used to run enterprise apps, place orders, review contracts, generate invoices and receipts, and even process payments.
Let’s put together a scenario for you. A small business owner uses her smartphone to check out the details for her next appointment and to review her voice and email messages. Before she arrives at her meeting she can watch a video on her cellular enabled tablet showing the latest features for a new product she’s about to demonstrate, and can check inventory levels. Once the customer buys in, she can process the order (including shipping details), enter delivery details, process a payment and email a receipt in a matter of seconds… all from the convenience of her smartphone.
Today’s devices mean you can conduct business anytime, anywhere – including trade shows, pop up stores and weekly markets. Retailers are even talking about getting rid of POS systems and doing everything – from product orders to payment processing – through a simple tap of a smartphone, connected iPad or other tablet.
In fact more and more business owners are eliminating landlines altogether and simply making sure employees are equipped with smartphones. To ensure this approach works consistently however, good cellular coverage throughout all facilities is essential. For small business with spotty indoor coverage, and especially those that need to stream large packets of data, Small Business Saturday might be the perfect time to consider our all-new, plug-and-play Cel-Fi PRO smart signal booster for 3G, 4G and LTE (including VoLTE).
