Find the Right Service Provider for Your Business
The last post discussed 3 steps to changing mobile service carriers. Here I will share my little secret to finding the right service provider, based on your business.
I recently decided to switch cell phone companies. I was dealing with too many dropped calls and service issues with my previous carrier and needed a change. Since I am not well educated on different call phone carriers, I asked my coworkers for help. One of them suggested I check out RootMetrics™.
RootMetrics™ is a site where you are able to compare different cell phone carriers. I checked it out and it actually is a really useful tool! Oh, yeah. It’s also free!
How it works:
You simply enter in your city or zip code and RootMetrics™ will check the coverage in the designated area. They provide you with a map that is color coded based on both the signal and data strength of each carrier. They also provide you with stats on the signal strength and how quickly data can be downloaded and uploaded.
RootMetrics™ is a great tool for the field service industry. Companies can search the areas they work in most to decide which service provider receives the strongest signal. Dropping service is never convenient when your techs need a signal to communicate back to your office. Try out this neat tool next time you need to make the switch to a more reliable cell phone carrier.
