Lose your phone or your wallet?

A recent study stated that 70% of people would rather lose their wallet than their mobile phone.

It’s no surprise really; just think how dependent we have become on our mobiles and not just for making and receiving calls.

Email and mobile banking are great but people are now using their mobile for the majority of their browsing on the internet now.

We are also spending more and more money on them and using more and more data than ever before.

So with all this is mind it’s essential you get the right deal for your company regardless of the size.

A few things to consider when renewing or getting a new deal:
  • The right handset, take your time and get advice.
  • The right coverage, get it checked to ensure the best possible reception.
  • Best value for money as a collective. Talk to a specialist and see if a deal can be done to get the RIGHT package and the BEST possible price.
You may well be on the best deal but it wont hurt to check that out with our client services team.

Working from home

It seems to be all the rage these days the ability to work from home.

With the world cup coming to a close but the summer approaching us fast it’s very easy to see the appeal of working at home eh!

But there is another reason to consider. For the parents among us the summer holidays can bring both thoughts of delight and also possible headaches.

Getting child care cover is not always that easy and there is always work to be done over the holidays.

This is where a good communications plan really pays dividends.

With the right phone system you can work as if you were in the office. Imagine your desk-phone at home that acts just as if your were in the office no different. Imagine if you could take that phone on holiday or even have your mobile phone have the ability to act like your desk phone?

All of this is possible and so so much more.

Mobility without compromise,

The word “Mobility” is a bit of a buzz word these days.

Why ?

Because we can and do more on the move.

Work used to be focused around the office, that’s where we did the work.

Today we can work from almost anywhere and you may find yourself doing exactly that.

So with everyone who works in an office they are likely to have two numbers : An office extension and a mobile number.  This also leaves you with two voicemail boxes and probably multiple email accounts.

Business today operates 10 x faster than it used too and with internet on our smartphones this is just the beginning.

At Connect-it we understand these challenges that mobility brings.  We have experience in enabling simple and affordable solutions that give your staff a landline and mobile solution to ensure they are connected at all times and never miss a call.

How ?

This can all be achieved with a Single Cost Per User Per Month that is likely to be more Cost Effective  than your current set up today.

What does PSTN mean?

Once again, another acronym, so let’s get that out of the way. PSTN stands for Public Switched Telephone Network.

So what does it mean?  It is simply a phone line from your premises to the exchange. Then you are connected to the rest of the PSTN. Excited ?

Once at the exchange this is where all the switching gets done i.e. connected to the next network until it reaches the phone where the destination number is.
Of course all of this routing happens in a split second and in fact is 99% digital today.

However the last hop on the journey is still using a physical copper line from your office or home to the nearest junction box which is the hop between you and the exchange. 

So it’s a big network that enables you to be connected to other people on the network.

The network today is owned by governments and large telecoms providers and extends all over the world through the air and under the oceans. This is why you are billed monthly or quarterly for this service so it can be maintained and improved.

We also use the PSTN line for most broadband connections today and interestingly knowing where we access data from and accessing those entire networks worldwide we only pay a single fee to our broadband supplier. Quite impressive when you think about it.

Would you like to see if we can be more Cost Effective on your line rental and call package?

If you have not reviewed your call package in the last 12 months the chances are we could save you up to 20% maybe more.

The Cost of a Missed Call

The cost of a missed call could be nothing, equally, it could be huge.

It may have been a cold caller, it may have been a customer or it just may have been a prospect.

Either way missing that call is never good.  They may  leave a voicemail, they may not.
The question is:

It was a good deal at the time

There was a deal a few years back that at that time was a small business no brainer.

It was very simple.

You had a mobile phone contract that in addition provided you with free landline number that diverted the calls to the mobile device.

What is a Hosted Phone System?

A Hosted Phone System is now a mature technology that uses the internet to make and receive phone calls and in some cases as well as a traditional PBX phone line.

Sometimes it is referred to by the technology it uses called VOIP.
