We've put together some handy tips to help you spend less and get more from your business mobile contract.

What type of business are you and how do you use your mobiles?

Every business is unique, and there is an optimum solution out there for everyone but it’s often hard to tell what it is, with all the different networks and tariff options. Our free bill analysis will help you find yours.

Multi network solutions to optimise data and roaming usage patterns

Sometimes a one size fits all single network solution doesn’t actually fit all. For example, if you have a handful of employees who regularly use a higher data allowance or roam more often than the others it makes sense to look at putting them on a different network or tariff that better suits their usage profile whilst the rest of the fleet may be better off on a traditional lead/sharer tariff. 

Capped Spend tariffs

For some, it’s comforting to know that users can’t spend more than a set amount. We have recently launched a brand new small business proposition on the new Carphone Warehouse network, iD Mobile. It offers a range of ShockProof tariffs where you can cap the out of bundle spend.

Lead/Sharer versus Solo tariffs

Traditionally, a business with 10+ mobiles would probably go onto a lead/sharer tariff where you purchase one large bundle of minutes and data/text bolt ons to be shared across the entire fleet. These are great if you have a fleet that uses roughly the same volume of calls/data per month and make lots of inter-company mobile calls, as the latter are free. Of late, with the rise in prominence of the unlimited minutes and texts solo tariffs we are seeing more businesses than ever opt for these for the peace of mind that there won’t be much overspend, plus with multiple solo tariffs you can select purely on the data usage of each individual. For larger fleets the best solution would probably be a mix of the two, but this is where you’ll really get the value out of an independent expert who won’t be biased towards a particular network.

Better value premium/national rate numbers

The bane of many is the fact that the 0871/0845 non-geographic numbers always show as out of bundle spend and it’s often these, not excessive data usage or roaming that affects spend on a more regular basis. You can now purchase specific bolt ons to cover these numbers as part of your tariff so that these are included in your contractual allowance. Don’t worry if you are already mid-contract, there are options you can add on a monthly rolling basis.

Monitoring your spend & reviewing your tariff

Keeping an eye on your costs is easier than ever now, with all the networks offering online access to billing data. As the administrator for your account you can login in at any time and check usage against your tariff bundle as well as analyse any out of bundle spend. If you suddenly find you are spending more it’s probably down to the fact that one or more of your employees has changed the way they need to use their business mobile. This is where your business mobile provider can help you to re-asses your current deal. At Carphone Warehouse Business our account managers will offer a mid-contract audit to check that your usage patterns still fit your tariff. If it appears that an alternative will offer better value we can look at what other options are available with your contracted network. 

Isn’t it frustrating for your business to be tied to one network and suffer poor reception in key locations as a result? That’s why we offer multiple network deals to make sure your team is always connected.

By choosing us we can offer you any combination of EE, O2 or Vodafone all under one account manager. Not sure which network is best for you? test it for yourself on us. With our coverage checker packs you can have confidence that you’ve chosen the right network(s) before you commit. Even after that, you’re protected by our 14-day network coverage guarantee.

The lowest monthly line rental isn’t always the cheapest solution in the long run. We review how your business uses its mobiles over a period of time to make sure you’ve got the right tariff structure in place so you won’t get caught out by costly additional charges for exceeding your inclusive calls, data and texts.

When you switch to Carphone Warehouse Business, you’ll benefit from our ‘Flexible Tech Fund’ - a pot of money you can spend as you like.
