Smartphones have developed impressively over the past two decades.
Sleek and stylish smartphones have replaced big and chunky mobiles, and have become part of a business mobile solution. Simultaneously, they’ve developed tremendous features, which, nowadays, have become a crucial part of many people’s lives.
In fact, research from Business Insider Intelligence indicates that 22 per cent of the population owns a smartphone, up from just 5 per cent in 2009.
That’s an increase of nearly 1.3 billion smartphones in just four years!
Business phone systems
These days, a business phone system can mean much more than a fixed device that remains in an office building.
A mobile phone system offers extensive communication flexibility. The smartphone is often referred to as a personal computer, because with this small but powerful device you can stay in contact with those who matter to you and your business, anytime, with access to emails, contacts and social media accounts.
