I remember the days of the old cellular phones that were just barely portable...do you remember that? Today cell phones not only easily fit in your pocket but the benefits of owning a cell phone have also changed greatly. Cell phones are no longer just for making phone calls. With the technology from today you can not only make phone calls from your phone, but, if you own a smart phone there is a slew of other features and benefits available to you which can increase your productivity at work greatly.The first benefit is the ability to access you email from anywhere, without the need to start your computer up at all. Yes, laptops are portable, but the ability to read and answer emails from your phone saves time and intern increases productivity as it gives you the ability to address an email immediately rather than when you are back in the office or when you have time to access you laptop or desktop computer again.The second benefit would have to be the ability to access the internet. This feature allows you to be able to browse the internet whenever and wherever you are. This can help you out in many instances. One example of a situation this can be beneficial for is if you were looking for a phone number to a business. You can simply open the internet browser on your phone and search the business name and within seconds you have the number. Some smart phones even allow you the ability to search by telling your phone what you want to search for through speech.There are some many different tasks the new smart phones can be used for that it would be impossible to list all of the possibilities here, from email and internet browsing to word processing. Cell phones have become a vital part of today’s business world. If you haven’t seen what a smart phone could do for your business yet, I suggest that you do.
