The Benefits of Using a Cell Phone for Business

I have given up on the idea of carrying around two phones … my own personal cell phone and one dedicated for work. Why would I need two phones if I can get everything done from just my own personal phone?

Let’s discuss some reasons why using a cell phone in business is a good idea and things to consider when using your personal phone to do so.

Who uses cell phones for business?

  • Cell phones are a huge work benefit to people who work in sales, delivery, IT, and many other fields.
  • Cell phones help you keep in constant contact with customers, who can communicate their wants and needs easily.

Life is simpler with just one phone

  • By using just one phone, there is no worry of forgetting one phone somewhere, no confusing one for the other.
  • No concern about being responsible for company property…the phone is yours.

Communication Improves

  • When your employer, co-worker, or customer tries reaching you, the odds are that you will have your personal phone with you and will receive the call/text. Who leaves home without their phone?
  • This is especially helpful at night or on weekends, anything outside the normal business hours. Tight deadlines or time-sensitive questions won’t be missed.


  • Like many others, I am very particular about the brand and model of cell phone I use. When I use my cell phone for work, I have full control over what type of phone I purchase and use.
  • I love having the ability to continue using the device that I like using and am most comfortable with.

But… what happens when you use the same phone number as your personal phone number AND as your work phone number? What about cell phone security with work documents?

This is where both worlds collide, and that may not always be a good thing.

Foxie has developed FoxieEngage, which will help alleviate the problem of mixing your personal life with your professional one.

FoxieEngage will provide you with your own personal phone number (a DID, also known as Direct Inward Dialing,) from whatever area code you choose. This will help to differentiate between work and personal calls and texts.

You don’t want to be distracted and answer your phone with a “What’s up” or “Hey,” thinking it’s a friend or family member…and then realize it’s a potential customer you have been trying to speak with for a long time.

FoxieEngage is a single platform that gives you the ability to chat, respond to social media questions, text, talk, and communicate with your staff, customers, and vendors…all on their terms and in the way they choose to communicate with you.

Do you have questions as to how FoxieEngage can drastically make your life easier and more productive?
