The mobile phone was invented to make it easy for us to communicate while on the move. But, with technological advances sweeping across the world there is a constant redefinition of the actual essence of a mobile phone. The shift from a ‘feature’ phone to a ‘smart’ phone has not only transformed our personal lives but also our business environment.
Here are some advantages of mobile phones for your business:
Business card scanner
Keeping track of all the business cards from various people we’ve met in the past can be quite a hassle. We might even forget the source or relevance of the card. Such problems can be avoided by the business card scanner application. They make use of the phone’s camera to click an image of the business card as the app reads and copies the content into its phone book and on its cloud platform.
You can use your phone camera to scan barcodes and QR codes with the help of some downloadable applications. All you need to do is open your phone camera and keep the screen in line with the code. There are also apps that can be used to create barcodes.
Know what’s happening in the office
You can now keep a watch on what’s happening in your office even while you are out. You can enable notifications and can keep track of audio and video files as well, using a Nest® Cam™ application.
Conferences and meetings
You don’t have to be physically present for a meeting, conference or a discussion. You can take part in live discussions wherever you are. It saves you time and money in travel costs. This is a quicker and cost-effective way to resolve issues and have meetings with just your smartphone.
Create your own Wi-Fi hotspot
Smartphones have the option of helping us connect to the Internet almost anywhere. Some service providers allow you to create your own Wi-Fi hotspot.
Pay your bills
Phone charges, taxes and any other bill can be paid using just your smartphone. With just a few clicks you are set for a hassle-free billing experience.
Smartphones have come a long way. Nowadays, they are almost equivalent to a computer.
