Don't Drop the Call on Savings:
How SIM Only Deals Can Boost Your Business Budget

As a savvy business owner, you’re probably always on the hunt for ways to cut costs and increase efficiency. In the world of telecommunications, one of the most promising opportunities for savings comes in the form of SIM only deals. If you’re not familiar with these deals, don’t worry. We’re here to bring you up to speed, helping you dial into savings without dropping the call on quality.

So, let’s start from the top. What exactly is a SIM only deal? Simply put, it’s a mobile phone contract that includes only a SIM card and a monthly allowance of data, texts, and minutes – but no handset. That’s right, you’re not bound by the traditional constraints of a package deal that includes a phone. Let’s put it this way: you wouldn’t buy a new car every time you needed to fill up on petrol, would you? So why should your business be saddled with the cost of a new handset every time your mobile contract is due for renewal? In addition, it is much more environmentally friendly!

SIM only deals can be significantly cheaper than standard mobile contracts which include a handset. Imagine slashing your monthly mobile expenses by as much as 50%! That’s a saving that could quickly add up, especially if you have a fleet of staff mobiles – and it’s one you can make without compromising on the quality or reliability of your service. Sounds like a pretty good deal, doesn’t it? But before you jump on the SIM only bandwagon, there are a few things you need to consider. The right deal can make a huge difference to your bottom line, but the wrong one can lead to more headaches than savings.

Sim only deals

Choosing the right SIM only deal for your business isn’t a call you want to make off the cuff. It needs a bit of thought, a bit of research, and yes, a bit of patience. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back – or rather, your ear. Here are a few handy tips to help you dial into the best savings for your business.

Tip 1: Know Your Usage – It’s easy to overestimate or underestimate how much data, texts or minutes your business uses each month. Before you start scouting for deals, take a good look at your previous bills and identify your exact usage. Remember, a SIM only deal that doesn’t cater to your needs can lead to extra charges, negating any potential savings.

Tip 2: Shop Around – Don’t just settle for the first deal you come across. Different providers offer different packages, so don’t be afraid to play the field a little. Compare prices, check for any hidden fees, and evaluate customer service. Remember, a deal isn’t just about cost, it’s about value – how much managed support will you receive from your provider? How quickly do they respond and solve any queries you may have?

Tip 3: Check the Coverage – Nothing’s worse than a dropped call or slow internet, especially when you’re doing business. Before you sign up for a SIM only deal, make sure the provider has a strong network coverage in your area. After all, a deal is only as good as its service. **(SCG Solutions can advise on the best coverage for you. And we offer all major networks under 1 billing platform. This means if the best coverage is different for each member of staff’s location, we can mix and match with no messy invoices)

Tip 4: BYOD Policy – If your business follows a BYOD policy, ensure the SIM cards are compatible with your employees’ handsets. The last thing you want is to sign up for a deal, only to find out your staff can’t use their phones. BUT, make sure their handsets have threat defence so your business is protected and stays compliant! (Ask us about MTD – SCG Solutions Mobile threat defence app)

It can show that you’re a savvy, resourceful business owner who knows how to make every penny count. So, take your time, do your research, and make the call that’s right for you and your business.
