In today’s busy society, small businesses need technology that moves as fast as they do. If you have employees who work off-site or travel frequently, wireless Internet access can increase productivity, boost your company’s efficiency and minimize travel costs through smart mobility management.

Being out of the office doesn’t mean being out of touch. With today’s technology, there are many easy and affordable wireless options for smaller businesses. Here are some tips for getting started:

1. Cut the cord. Going mobile will help make sure you have maximum flexibility – whether you need to walk across the street or travel across the nation – to meet the needs of your business and be more responsive to your clients without being tethered to your desk by inefficient technology.

2. Sync your technology. Get your PC, laptop and hand-held wireless device on the same page. This will ensure you have the correct contact information and updated documents while away from the office.

3. Be secure. While most wireless networks have some level of security, the more protection you have on your device, the better. Even a basic password will protect your information if your device is lost or stolen.

4. Make your mobile device work for you. When setting up your mobile office, take only the hardware, software and programs you need. It’s easy to be overwhelmed with all of the options, so cater your travel program to your own personal needs and work patterns.

5. Back-up your data. In case your laptop battery dies or smart phone gets lost, put essential files on a memory stick or CD before you leave. Printing out your list of important contacts is also a great way to make sure you never miss deadlines or appointments.

A local technology consultant – or solution provider – can help you implement a practical business mobility plan. By working together to figure out what kind of access you need, setting it up and developing a wireless protocol, you and your employees will always have access to essential information, boosting your business to the next level.
