Everything you need to consider before buying company-branded and enterprise phone cases for your business.
Providing employees with company mobile devices is an investment that is increasingly essential to boost work accessibility. We hate to say it, but drops are inevitable; fortunately, damage isn’t. If your employees use company smartphones to conduct business, protecting your investment should be a top priority.
This may seem like a no brainer, but when it comes to purchasing company phone cases, quality matters. The $5 cases you can buy off a wholesaler in bulk might seem like a better option initially, but you’ll soon regret not investing in a better case when your employees start inundating your IT department with damaged smartphones. After all, within one year roughly 30% of all smartphones will suffer accidental damage.
Luckily, it’s pretty easy to protect the devices your employees rely on by purchasing phone cases and accessories that suit the work environment. With the right smartphone case you can support employee productivity, protect your investment, and save your IT team hours of hassle.
Before purchasing smartphone cases for the entire company, there are a few key things to consider.
When it comes to enterprise phone cases, not all job functions are created equal
When it comes to case basics, functionality is the first thing you should consider. What types of environments will your employees be using the phone in? Employees that spend the majority of their time seated in an office setting will have different case needs than those working outdoors or in more trying environments. If your employees will be on their feet and moving for the majority of their workday, their phones will be susceptible to drops. If driving is a big part of the job requirements, compatibility with mounting accessories is important. Providing car phone mounts is absolutely necessary in states where mounted devices is the law.
In addition to phone cases, there are many other accessories that can vastly improve working conditions for employees. If holding virtual meetings on-the-go is common at your company, you should purchase cases that are compatible with accessories.
Choose stronger materials for heavy duty protection
How protective does the phone case need to be? Again, this is highly dependent on the work environment so it’s important to consider the previous question before thinking about how durable the case should be. A standard measurement for phone case strength and durability doesn’t exist, but there are ways to determine how much protection a case offers.
Since the main purpose of any phone case is to protect the phone, the materials used should be the first thing you look at here. While most generic phone cases are made of plastic, the types of plastic vary as well. Other materials used for cases include wood, silicone, carbon fiber, leather and synthetic leather, and metal. Evaluate the strength and durability of any phone case further by examining its construction. Is there more than one layer of protection for the phone? Are all sides of the phone covered? Does it use shock-absorbing material?
Rokform Rugged cases are built with a protective hard polycarbonate outer shell and soft impact resistant core to create shockproof protection. They have been tested to exceed military drop standards MIL-STD 801G-516.6.
Drive company awareness with branded phone cases
Adding a company logo to the phone case is a great opportunity to add additional brand value to your employee cases. For example, if your employees are working in customer-facing roles, you may be able to increase brand recognition with brand logos.
Branded equipment also adds an elevated level of company professionalism while showing potential clients that you invest in the small but important details.
Note: Rokform offers a custom logo program at no additional charge as long as your purchase meets minimum order quantity requirements.
If possible, make enterprise orders in bulk
No company purchase decision would be complete without considering the cost. Sometimes you can find savings by reducing packaging for large orders. Find out if there are any added benefits to purchasing in bulk - there usually are.
Additionally, you should consider any additional value that might be offered through manufacturer support. You might be surprised to find out that not all cell phone case manufacturers offer warranties for their products. Does the case come with any additional support or warranty? What does it protect? Any quality manufacturer should have a great warranty policy – steer clear of any that don’t.
