8 Solid Ways Using Prepaid Phones Benefit Startup Companies

Every business needs a phone network. However, long gone are the days of landlines, and traditional cell phone plans may not be the right fit for startup companies on tight budgets. If you are looking for a phone plan for your startup, here are eight solid reasons why you should consider using prepaid cell phones instead of purchasing a traditional phone plan.

1. Prepaid Phones are Cheaper

Mobile phone companies are redefining how much customers should pay for cell service. Some of the cheapest plans are just fifteen bucks a month, and the multi-line plans available through these smaller companies are much more affordable than those offered by larger mobile phone carrier companies. As long as their service is available in your location, there’s no reason to pay more for talk and text.

2. No Contracts are Required

There are folks out there saving gobs of money with zero commitment because they go to a store and purchase a “phone card” each month. The pay-as-you-go option is excellent for startups because it involves zero risk and no commitment. Most companies allow you to pay with your bank card online, so a monthly trip to the store is not required.

3. The Same Coverage for Less

Many of the affordable carriers like Mint operate using the towers of larger carriers. This means you get the exact same coverage at a fraction of the cost. It’s a no-brainer if your startup is on a budget.

4. Fewer Fees

When you use a prepaid phone plan, you won’t pay any fees if you go over your data limit. Instead, data just cease to work until you pay more. This is beneficial if you want to limit data usage on company phones, and it’s a non-issue since most places have an internet connection anyway.

5. Access to Email and Web Browsing

Many people turn their noses up at prepaid phones, but they offer the same access to email and web browsing as high-end phones with expensive data plans. This is perfect for employees on the go who need to stay connected.

6. No Perks You Don’t Need

Major carriers are notorious for offering perks and benefits that aren’t worth the extra money. If you just want a basic talk and text plan for each employee, prepaid phones provide exactly that without the extra costs.

7. Seasonal Flexibility and Savings

If your startup only needs access to phones during the on-season, it’s ridiculous to pay for a two-year contract. Prepaid phones allow you to only pay for exactly what you need. That’s a huge chunk of savings you can invest in a more important part of your startup.

8. Protection Against Irresponsible Employees

Prepaid phones are cheaper, so you won’t take as much of a hit if an irresponsible employee loses their phone or doesn’t return it after quitting. It also protects you from overage fees because employees can’t engage in endless browsing on company phones.
