Industry trade show season is in full swing, and chances are at least part of your company’s workforce is out on the road attending conferences and networking up a storm. During this busy season of travel, having a reliable phone system with robust mobile capability is more important than ever. Remember, attendees at trade shows are the professional face of your company at these important events, and access to a reliable business phone system while on the go helps enhance your company’s reputation.
Trade shows go on all over the world and provide great opportunities to meet and greet business contacts, both new and old. At the same time, business must go on back home. Business travelers must be able to stay in close contact with the home office and existing clients and vendors, while also having a contact number they can provide to the new contacts they make at events.
Rather than giving out a personal mobile phone number—which presents security risks and can look unprofessional—tradeshow business communications can be conducted from a business phone system with a mobile client. For instance, 3CX Phone System offers mobile clients for both Android and iOS that allow users to take the office extension along with them whether they are staffing a booth, attending a social event, or trading contact information with new clients or vendors.
3CX mobile clients have a built-in tunnel to avoid remote firewall issues, and offer reliable calling over 3G or from any WiFi hotspot. PUSH notifications save battery life, an important feature during long tradeshow days.
So if your road warriors are getting ready to head to your industry’s biggest events over the next few months, make sure they have the tools they need to make those tradeshows as valuable as possible for your business.
