Tips and advice for selecting the most appropriate mobile services for your business:
1. Ensure appropriate network coverage so that mobile network coverage matches mobile user travel patterns. Different network providers may be appropriate for metropolitan versus rural users
2. Match mobile plan features to user needs. Different users or groups of users will often have different service requirements. Some users may require only standard talk and text capability, others may have a heavy focus on mobile email or internet access requiring plans with mobile data allowances
3. Minimise effective call rates for core talk and text services which generally make up over 80 percent of the total cost of a mobile solution. Note carriers typically sell mobile services based on mobile handset subsidies or peripheral plan features such as discounted social networking or content bundles which have minimal commercial impact in comparison to core talk and text services
4. Maintain flexibility so your mobile solution can expand, contract or adjust to match your workforce ensuring you are never stuck paying for services you no longer require or that are no longer fit for purpose. Mobile handset ownership should be separated from plan terms so you are free to adjust or terminate plans at any time without penalty
5. Select appropriate mobile handsets for user needs balancing function and cost. If new mobile handsets are required you should begin by selecting a consistent operating system such as Symbian (the world’s most widely used mobile operating system used by Nokia, SonyEricsson, Samsung), Android (Google developed platform used by Samsung, SonyEricsson, HTC), Apple (popular user interface with a range of applications), Blackberry (proprietary software and data plan required), or Windows (windows phone 7 is now being rapidly adopted by major handset manufacturers) to minimise staff support and training costs. Then select one or more handset models to match user needs as required (basic talk and text, business email user, multimedia smartphone), purchase outright and ensure they are not carrier locked
Australian Mobile Number Portability
Mobile number portability has been in place in Australian since 2001. This regulated process allows you to keep your existing mobile service number when changing carriers or moving from one service provider to another.
CommsChoice will provide you with a new SIM card for your mobile service. At the agreed time CommsChoice will contact your existing carrier or service provider on your behalf to manage number porting, which uses
telecommunications industry automated processes. In the vast majority of
cases the number porting process will be complete within a couple of
hours. Note the provision of incorrect information or other practical
considerations may cause your port to take slightly longer.
