Why are mobile devices important?

Mobile devices and collaboration apps have become the number one method for employees to communicate. For global organisations, one of the biggest priorities when it comes to developing an effective hybrid work strategy is effectively equipping employees with the latest 5G-enabled mobile devices.

Outdated mobile devices often pose a security risk to the business and have a negative impact on employee experience and productivity. Ensuring your mobile fleet is up-to-date is a key enabler for a strong mobile-first collaboration strategy and providing the right mobile technology will support your organisation’s productivity and talent attraction and retention objectives.

Procuring mobile devices is often a relatively big hit on cash flow for any size business. Moving to an OpEx-based financing model takes the CapEx burden away and provides a framework to refresh the fleet in a way that suits you and reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Why invest in the latest mobile devices?

Updating your mobile fleet means your employees can access:

  • up-to-date processors that are built for multi-tasking, including intensive cloud collaboration applications

  • improved device durability compared to older devices reducing breakage and replacement costs
  • greater network capacity and connectivity speed in populated areas using 5G.

Why move to an OpEx-based financing model?

  • With some options cheaper than the capital equivalent, financing may give a more cost-effective route to procuring the devices your employees need.
  • There’s a range of flexible payment plans and various contract lengths to suit you, which provide consistent and predictable costs over the contract term.
