Now you can bring your business anywhere with All You Can Eat Data

The increasing prevalence of cloud computing means that remote and mobile working - where an employee works outside the traditional office environment - has become almost mainstream these days.

Most employees now expect to have more flexibility away from the long-established structures and policies that define the typical workday. The ‘work from anywhere’ approach is especially appealing to a younger generation of digital natives who grew up understanding that you can interact with anyone, anytime, from any location.

It wasn’t that long ago that the idea of working from home or on the road seemed out of reach across some industries. Today, it’s a different story. Although the nine-to-five, desk-bound job is still standard, improved telecommuting tools have seen the ‘work from anywhere’ trend increase by 115pc worldwide between 2005 and 2015, according to a report from California-based media company KTLA. Mobile working sees many professionals now performing at least some of their daily work tasks via a smartphone or tablet.

A study from Deloitte shows that 37pc of the global workforce is now mobile and 30pc of full-time employees now do most of their work outside of their employers’ location. In Ireland, more than three-quarters (78pc) of businesses now have a remote working policy, according to the Business Communications Technology (BCT) Insight Report from Blueface. The report predicts that remote working policies will rival the popularity of fixed office locations by 2025.

The rapid development of increasingly digital technologies is changing how we communicate, collaborate and connect with clients, co-workers and customers across industries. A forecast of employment trends by the World Economic Forum called flexible work, including virtual teams, “one of the biggest drivers of transformation” in the workplace.

Customers are demanding more responsiveness from businesses and employees are expecting more flexible work arrangements. To meet those demands, businesses need to ensure they have appropriate mobile plans in place. A robust All You Can Eat Data plan is essential. These plans make sense from a cost-saving perspective, but can also make businesses more flexible and open to unlimited possibilities.

“Limited data plans can dictate your business’s culture, operations and interactions with customers,” says Nicola Mortimer, Head of Business Products at Three. “With an All You Can Eat data plan from Three, you have the freedom to decide and implement the best ways of working for your business, to the benefit of both your customers and your employees.

“There are no surprise costs to be concerned about. You’ll know exactly what you’re getting and you’ll get exactly what you expect, in terms of both service and bills.”

It’s rare to find an entire team at their desks at the same time. Some are in meetings, others are travelling to meet clients and others are working from home or other branches. Three’s All You Can Eat Data* plans allow the entire team to keep in touch and make it easy to work together across time zones and locations. With a mobile connection and unlimited data, it feels like everyone is together. Co-workers can share screens, transfer files and access the documents they need. They can also chat and update each other on progress.

With Three’s new Business SIM Only offer, customers get unlimited data, unlimited calls and texts, inclusive roaming data when they travel abroad and flexibility on plans. If switching, they can keep their original phone numbers and they’re not committed to long-term contracts.

Switch your business phones to Three for just €20 a month for the first six months and just €30 thereafter. Three’s SIM Only business plan gives you All You Can Eat Data, texts and calls on a flexible 30-day contract. To switch, call their business team on 1800 200 016 or visit the website.

*All You Can Eat data applies to data used in Republic of Ireland only with fair usage limits for usage elsewhere in the EU.
