An unreliable mobile service that’s prone to slow speeds, downtime, and signal failure can be a huge setback for your business. An uninterrupted mobile signal brings more value than ensuring your staff don’t miss calls. There are many ways that relying on poor and unreliable mobile services holds your business back.
- Unreliable signal causes stress and high staff turnover
If your staff are having to rely on sometimes unusable mobile devices it causes incredible amounts of stress. Your staff want your business to succeed as much as you do, and if the smartphones and mobile devices they rely on can’t connect that success becomes much harder to achieve. The stress caused by consistently missing targets due to unreliable, but essential, mobile connectivity is a common reason staff seek new employment.
- In the WFH era, remote connectivity is everything
Mobile signal strength isn’t just important for call quality. In fact, in the era of working from home and remote teams, data connectivity and transfer speeds are quickly becoming the key priority for business mobile customers. Many businesses rely on dongle solutions or hotspot tethering to keep their workforce connected. If these devices don’t have an uninterrupted connection it can cost home workers 30 minutes of productivity per day.
- Poor service carries hidden costs
Poor service and signal strength cost UK businesses an estimated £37bn in 2016. Unreliable mobile signal directly leads to missed deadlines, poor call quality (costing valuable sales), and customer or client exodus due to the inability to reach key contacts when needed.
