Throughout the year, businesses spanning many sectors rely heavily on international travel to maintain relationships, explore new markets and expand their operations. But what’s often overlooked is the extent to which the changing seasons can bring about a major shift in an organisation’s roaming requirements.
Heading into the autumn season, many UK businesses naturally wind down their overseas travel plans. This shift is influenced by a broad range of factors, which may include reduced demand, potential weather disruptions, or the desire to focus on domestic operations over the potentially busy Christmas period.
As a result, those who curb their foreign travel at this time of year may no longer require extensive international data allowances, or the same level of global coverage they needed during the spring and summer months.
Though in many cases, they could find themselves continuing to pay for the same coverage, nonetheless.
Limitations of Long-Term Roaming Agreements
Cost issues arise when businesses find themselves locked into long-term or annual agreements with their roaming service providers. These static contracts generally lack the flexibility needed to cater to shifting seasonal requirements, resulting in businesses paying for services they do not use efficiently (or in some cases at all) during the autumn and winter months.
Likewise, a static annual agreement may result in substandard coverage and insufficient data allowances at peak times. The terms and conditions of the agreement apply 365 days a year, irrespective of the organisation’s requirements at the time.
Both in terms of convenience and cost-effectiveness, this is far from an ideal solution for businesses that regularly travel overseas.
