Talk Talk Business Mobiles
Talk Talk Business Mobiles offers a consultative service to UK business owners looking for more than just a free handset. The main issue behind their offering is workforce mobility and the difficulty of collaborating successfully with colleagues whilst on the move. This can be an awkward problem to solve, but the company aims to guide their clients towards a unified approach to telecoms in general.
What are the features of Talk Talk’s service offering?
Although delivered as a bespoke service tailored to individual businesses, Talk Talk’s mobility solutions generally include the following features:
- An affordable range of up-to-date handsets
- A mobile system that runs alongside and enhances existing landline
- A complete support and advice package incorporating all aspects of workforce mobility
- A one-stop shop for enquiries, services and support
Talk Talk clients can arrange formal consultations to discuss mobile technology, how it can make a positive impact on their business, and how to garner its benefits.
How will businesses benefit from this service?
Large businesses in particular will benefit from a strategic approach to organising their mobile workforce. Every business has unique requirements which may not be met by a generic business mobile phone package, and Talk Talk has recognised the fact that alternative solutions are sometimes required.
Including workforce mobility as part of an overall strategic plan helps to avoid a piecemeal approach that can lead to choosing costly short-term solutions. Businesses are able to look at the needs of their mobile workers as a whole, and formulate a way to meet those needs without breaking the bank.
Talk Talk’s extensive experience in mobile telecoms benefits businesses of all sizes, allowing them to treat each business individually and offer tailored solutions.
