Hardware support

For most applications, many hardware options will fit the bill. However, in others, the requirements are so specific that it narrows the field to only one or two options for a handheld (or smartphone) device. This is more frequently the case with RFID (radio frequency identification) rollouts and other projects requiring components and accessories for a very specific purpose. In those instances, there may be limited support for wireless connectivity and support for only UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems). As a global standard, UMTS is the default for many hardware companies in their product design versus CDMA (Code-Division Multiple Access), which only benefits them in North America.

Just as important as choosing the right mobile device, selecting the right voice and data plan is vital to your business. However, with hundreds of options on the market, deciding which voice and data plan is most suitable for your business can be a huge challenge – no matter the type or number of mobile devices you're rolling out.

The right voice and data plan helps ensure that your business has access to the information that you need, when you need it, without overpaying. In today's competitive marketplace, businesses need to find ways to cut costs and maximize efficiencies, and pursuing the most appropriate voice and data plan is one way to uncover additional savings.

To decide which voice and data plan is right for your business, it is best to take a good look at your organization's specific needs. Do you heavily rely on line-of-business software applications in the field? Are your employees using their devices to unnecessarily stream data unrelated to work? How much hardware support do you require?

In this slideshow, Barcoding, Inc.'s Kelly Harris, director of program management, has identified a few key considerations that should be taken into account when selecting your business' next voice and data plan.
