Businesses Could Trade In Mobiles To Increase Flexibility

Firms in the UK that decide to trade in their mobile phones and switch to a set of newer models may find they benefit from increased flexibility.

Martin Lyne, director of small and medium-sized enterprises at T-Mobile, notes a wider range of working practices is something many companies now desire.

Indeed, he suggests the typical nine-to-five day has come to an end and in its place is round-the-clock productivity.

Commenting on a survey of firms, Mr Lyne remarks: "Over a third disagree with the traditional idea of the working week lasting from Monday to Friday, reflecting the growth of flexible working and the constant availability that mobile technology offers to today's workforce."

Mobiles not only allow employees to keep working outside office hours and in remote locations, they also provide a direct link for bosses to their staff.

T-Mobile this week announced four new monthly deals designed for businesses, with each tailored to the needs of small companies.
