Your customers deciding that their business needs a mobile telecom solution is a big decision to make. It can also be financially draining if the focus is in the wrong direction.
Mobile telecom solutions is what Alcatel does, and they want to make sure your customers know everything they need to before they make the leap.
And if your customers decide that they want to enter this world with Alcatel Enterprise, Alcatel are more than happy to help!
The first question is, why your customers need a telecom solution?
It’s important to remember that it’s different depending on your customers’ industry, and there’s a lot of different options depending on how their businesses run.
To answer this question best, Alcatel focuses on a specific example that, if this is your customers first step into this industry, they will have some slightly sensitive information that they use on a daily basis (client details, briefs, customer order information, personal data, etc.), their company is director owned, and every cost is coming straight out of their bottom line.
In this world, the reason they’re turning to mobile telecom solutions is part security and part productivity. Your customers want to know that their staff are keeping close control of that information, that they’re using their work phones for work and that they’re secure if lost or stolen.
Another huge plus of having a business telecom plan is, in this new world of lockdown and working from home, they need to be able to guarantee that their staff can work from anywhere. That means being sure they have phones that are up to the job, secure internet no matter where they are and the ability to be reached when needed.
In a world where Wi-Fi is being used more than ever, someone’s typical home connection might not cut it, or their phone doesn’t have the memory to handle the work your customers need them to be able to do. They can remove that fear and problem and can do it a lot more affordable than they expect, with Alcatel Enterprise!
What should your customers look for, and what are the crucial features that truly matter?
This can be one of the biggest barriers to entry, as there are so many features on phones nowadays. Do they need the best screen? Does the camera quality matter? Do they care about Gorilla Glass or IP rating?
There are a few main priorities when looking for their first range of business phones.
Firstly, and most importantly, ROM memory. Your customers need to know that the handsets they’re using can handle the workload they’re expecting them to.
It’s easy to say you need memory, but how much? Some brands charge incredible prices for 8GB, reaching the four-figure mark often, but for most business needs, your customers don’t need that much. In fact, your customers are likely to start with 3GB.
That’s where Alcatel’s enterprise suite of smartphones starts – with the Alcatel 1S. At a great price point, your customers have a phone that can instantly handle whatever work they need to throw its way. If they want to push it to 4GB? Alcatel have the Alcatel 3L, with more ROM memory than your customers ought to need, giving them space for all their work and personal needs!
RAM (memory) is also crucial, allowing your customers to have every work app they need on the device.
Alcatel devices come with more than enough RAM, with 32GB at the most affordable bracket on the 1S. However, if your customers did end up needing more space, Alcatel’s suite of enterprise smartphones allows for the addition of external hard drives to get up to an extra terabyte of space!
All the memory in the world won’t help your customers too much if they don’t have an Octacore processor. They want the phone to run well and allow them to run everything they need to at the same time.
Again, there are lots of names and jargon being thrown around, but if your customers start with an Octa-Core, 4 x A553, 1.8GHz + 4 x A53, 1.5GHz, they won’t go far wrong.
Lastly but by no means least, battery. Your customers are looking for a phone that can handle their workload during the working day. It won’t do them any good if it needs charging to make it to 6 PM.
Ideally, for a smartphone, your customers want to be starting at around 4,000mAh which will give them a day’s battery life. Your customers can keep making that number bigger and bigger, but they’ll be spending money they don’t need to for a high-functioning business phone.
The point of this article is highlighting that, although they could spend hundreds or thousands of pounds per handset for their business, they do not need to!
Your customers can get everything they need from a smartphone at a great price, and there are even cheaper options if all they need is a device that can make calls and text.
How can Alcatel help you?
