f you’re a frequent traveler, you understand how challenging it can be to stay connected with your team and clients back home. In the past, the only solution was to purchase an international roaming plan, which can be incredibly expensive. But, thanks to advancements in technology, staying connected is now easier and more affordable than ever.
Recently, I flew out to China, and before leaving, I had my AT&T iPhone unlocked. This was because the roaming service didn’t work the last time I was there, and tech support couldn’t figure out why. Upon arriving in China, I swapped out my SIM card with a China Mobile one that included an unlimited 4G data plan. The cost was less than $20! With this plan, I was able to connect to the internet anywhere in China, making it possible to stay in touch with my team and clients back in the US.
Thanks to the unlimited data plan, I was able to use the UC apps anywhere in China. I answered a client’s call deep inside a narrow alley on the outskirts of Guangzhou, and they had no idea that I was halfway around the world. My team and I also group chatted regularly, and no one flinched that we had a 16-hour time difference between us. I even texted my iPhone contacts using my RingCentral number through the app, which is my office number, without worrying about incurring any international text charges.
It’s incredible how UCaaS knows no boundaries. Being out of the country no longer means being out of business. With UC apps and an unlimited data plan, you can stay connected to your team and clients anywhere in the world, without worrying about expensive international charges.
In conclusion, if you’re a frequent traveler or have clients and team members located internationally, it’s essential to have a reliable and cost-effective communication solution. UC apps, such as RingCentral and 8×8, along with an unlimited data plan, can provide just that. Stay connected and stay in business, no matter where you are in the world.
