Vodafone wants to make the Apple iPhone – which will be available on the network from January 14th – into a must-have device for business people, it has suggested.
Speaking with IT PRO, Peter Kelly, Vodafone’s head of enterprise explained that the network wants to make the iPhone into a must-have handset for business people which could encourage some to trade in their old mobile.
However, it may be necessary for businesses to carefully manage mobile phones that they provide to their employees.
Peter Readman, director of ttMobiles, said: “You are then building a culture in which people are conscious of unwarranted expenditure and may even pick up on network billing errors that have slipped through.”
He added that businesses should make sure they have a robust mobile phone policy that all users have to read, understand and sign to say they will comply.
Apple’s iPhone store states there are a variety of applications which could benefit the business user from stock checkers to location-based services.
