The agency enjoys greater flexibility. “We can add more people, phones, Mobile Wi-Fi and tablets whenever we need to,” adds Justin. “If we’ve got a freelancer we can get them up and running quickly using a 30-day SIM card.”
Justin also sees a huge upside for people in customer-facing roles: “Our business development team is always out and about meeting clients. Being able to access lots of information on the move really helps those conversations flow.” The business makes international calls to Europe and the United States which, at no extra charge, offer better value for money.
Additionally costs are much easier to control. “We can go online and set permissions for things like premium rate numbers and data usage for individual users. This avoids surprise bills and prevents potential misuse,” Justin says.
Like all highly mobile businesses with international clients, Digital Next has a variety of needs – whether that’s using devices on the move or when working abroad. With MobileIron, a handy security extra with Business Connect, the company is always in control, even if a phone gets lost or stolen. Says Justin: “Through using the MobileIron web interface we’re able to quickly locate, lock and wipe the device, so all sensitive business information is never at risk of being breached or leaked.”
