Video call-enabled mobile phones

Modern technology can help minimise disruption to an organisation, something up-to-date smartphones could prove to be of assistance with.

Recycling used mobile phones to upgrade to newer handsets may be a priority for firms in 2010.

According to senior product manager for IP Multimedia, Virgin Media Business Alistair McKinnon, implementing new technologies can reduce the number of problems firms experience.

For example, video calls can allow meetings to continue when problems may have arisen with transport.

Selling old mobile phones to upgrade to video call-enabled devices could save a company money in the long run should similar difficulties occur.

"They have a better, tighter relationship, team work improves, productivity improves and people are more contactable and approachable," Mr McKinnon said about employees who use video calls.

Indeed, the government recently called on organisations to do more to encourage flexible working, with some features of smartphones - such as video calls and email - potentially allowing employees to work from more locations.
