Today, so many people have mobile phones that many companies have stopped asking for home phone numbers. Those that do often find that field is left blank. There must be some fairly amazing benefits to having mobile phones, tablets and notebooks or so many people wouldn’t be caught dead without them.
If you stop to think about it, mobile phones make sense because of the advantages of connectivity on the go. In fact, try to imagine a life without a mobile device of some sort. It would take some getting used to, wouldn’t it? Imagine not having the following advantages.
Increased Productivity on the Job
Anyone who works in the field understands the advantages of connectivity on the go. In the past they would almost always need to wait until they returned to the office to enter data onto the mainframe or type communications to clients or intra-office memos. This can all be handled quickly and efficiently from a mobile phone, laptop or tablet, even when out in the field.
Also, there are a number of apps which make it easier to do your job whilst on a remote site. Not only are there office apps to utilise but there are proprietary apps for almost any type of work imaginable. In addition, more and more apps become available every day and the best part is that many of them are free!
Easily Reached in Case of Emergency
It is said that living in today’s world is like living at the speed of light. Everything goes on around us so quickly that it is hard to keep up with it all. We rush to work, rush home, rush to put the kids to bed, rush to take a shower, rush to get up again and on it goes.
Unfortunately, living at this pace means that we are constantly on the go and it may be difficult to be contacted in times of emergency. However, having a mobile phone or a tablet on hand means we need never miss an important call again. If anything happens to a family member, we can be instantly notified through voice or email.
Using GPS Services to Avoid Getting Lost
Unless you know exactly where you are going, it is easy to get lost whilst on the road. It doesn’t matter if you are travelling for pleasure or work, chances are you will occasionally find yourself circling about looking for a particular road or address. Then there are those times when emergency teams need to find someone stranded on a hiking trip or multitudes hit by catastrophes.
However, GPS location services are useful in so many other ways. Today there are a great many electric vehicles on the road that need to be recharged regularly. GPS location services on your mobile phone along with special apps can help you locate charging stations close to you. The same holds true for mobile phones. Just pull up a phone charging map and you can choose any of the recharging sites nearest you.
Anyone who lives life in the fast lane surely can appreciate having connectivity on the go. From having the ability to stay in touch with loved ones to working in the field, modern technology sure makes life easier.
