We all love Christmas – the parties, prezzies , food, and spending quality time with family and friends. But Christmas also means shopping, and for some of us, the thought of having to sharpen our elbows and do battle with the crowds is more likely to fill us with dread than seasonal cheer.
Is your business all set for Christmas?
The run up to Christmas and the New Year can be especially hectic. Besides the inevitable last-minute rush on work that needs to be completed by Christmas Eve, you’ll have cards to mail out, rotas to sort, clients to entertain – and the office party to organise.
One of the questions we’re most frequently asked by clients is “Can we have unlimited mobile data?”. As we’ve come to depend on our smartphones for so much more than just voice calls, it seems we’ve developed an insatiable appetite for data, but do you know how much you actually use each month?
For any business, the implications of failing to anticipate an event that disrupts communications can be huge. How much could missing even just one call cost your business?
Whatever brand of smartphone you have in your pocket, there’s a good chance it’s from the same manufacturer as the last one you owned – and probably the one before that too.
In the mid-1990’s, a certain telecoms company ran an ad campaign with the strapline, “It’s good to talk”… the intervening decades have seen huge leaps forward in communications technology, but this statement remains as true as it ever did.
It’s being called the next industrial revolution… the Internet of Things (IoT) makes it possible for everyday objects to be connected via the internet, enabling them to communicate and exchange data with each other.
Are you still using Microsoft Office 2007 in your business? If you are, you need to start making plans to upgrade your environment very soon.
By bringing mobile telephony and mobile computing together in a single, pocket-size device, the smartphone has revolutionised the way we work and play in the space of just 20 years.
What kind of on hold experience do callers get when they phone your business? What do they hear while they’re waiting in a queue, or being transferred between departments?
