How flexible data solves three common data dilemmas

Enjoy peace of mind with a plan that automatically adjusts to your needs

Small-business owners are becoming increasingly reliant on mobile solutions when running their companies, and having the right data plan in place for yourself – and your team – is vital to productivity, connectivity, collaboration and cost-effectiveness. But you don’t want to pay for data you don’t need, or find yourself without enough data to get the job done.

Enter: flexible data plans, which automatically adjust to meet your needs, so you never have too little or too much – it’s always just right. Here are a few examples of how flexible data can solve some common data dilemmas.

Dilemma #1: George runs a successful interior-design firm and has six employees, all of whom regularly work remotely, and rely on their smartphones and tablets. His team frequently shares large files, collaborates while on site and uploads photos and design schematics. As a result, George finds that his company repeatedly incurs costly data overages.

Solution: With a flexible data plan, George doesn’t need to worry about overages. Flexible data plans automatically bump you up to the next data-bucket tier when you reach your data limit, so you (and George) can keep right on working seamlessly without fear of overage charges.

Dilemma #2: Julia is an entrepreneur whose software startup is growing fast, and she’s gradually adding new team members to the company. But she doesn’t yet know how much data they’ll need, and doesn’t want have her team unexpectedly run out of data in the middle of an important task.

Solution: Flexible data plans grow with you, so Julia can start at a lower tier and the plan will automatically give her more data if her team needs it. Everyone will have enough data to continue working without interruption, and Julia won’t have to overspend on a data plan that exceeds her needs, thereby keeping her new company’s costs in check.

Dilemma #3: Larry operates a small event-planning company and finds that his team’s data usage fluctuates dramatically – they’re swamped with weddings in summer and holiday parties in winter, but usage dwindles in the off-season and Larry doesn’t want to keep changing his company’s plan back and forth.

Solution: Flexible data plans make managing seasonal usage fluctuations easy, since the plans automatically adjust, without you (or Larry) having to devote time or energy to making account changes. Employees can stay connected and productive, and you can focus on what matters most: running your company.
