Mobile recycling may be an option worth considering for businesses looking to allow staff to work more flexibly.
Upgrading to new mobile phones could be possible for companies that decide to sell their old handsets with Envirofone and a new BlackBerry portfolio by Orange may offer them a solution.
The mobile network offers customers the BlackBerry Internet Service from £6.38 per month with other solutions also available for those with greater needs.
Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, said: "Keeping up-to-date with the latest mobile phone technology is so important in today's fast paced business world. By recycling your old handsets for cash, you can ensure that your business is moving with the times."
Anthony Keyworth, director of business products for Orange UK, suggested the plans offer a solution for businesses of all sizes as it offers an affordable solution to small businesses while larger companies can benefit from providing flexible workers with secure access to emails.
He said: "We're always striving to make the lives of our business customers easier, offering greater flexibility and value for money. Businesses of all sizes need to be flexible and can't afford for staff to lose time through travel or a weak connection."
It has recently been revealed that employees at Proctor and Gamble will soon be able to use their smartphones to print emails and presentations, helping to keep them productive while on the move.
