While one person dreams of a new iPhone X, another one is itching to test the artificial intelligence of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. Our taste in phones and what features we want in our own are as individual as our taste in clothes or food, and that’s where our idea for bill splitting got started.
Just a few years back, companies bought their entire staff the same phone, in the same colour, in bulk and usually employees didn’t have much say in the choice. The management might have had more luxurious phones compared to the more affordable ones the rest of the staff used, but that was it. The phone was simply a communication tool – nothing more.
We’ve come a long way since then. Because today the work phone and the personal phone are one and the same for more and more of us, it’s only smart to give everyone the chance to choose the exact phone they want. Splitting the bill with friends has long been possible in restaurants and taxis and now we’ve made it possible to split the bill when buying a phone.
A happy employee vs. reasonable costs?
With the advancement of technology, our ways of working have become increasingly diverse – computers, mobile phones and tablets enable employees to choose more freely where, how and when they want to work. Alongside our individual ways of working, we need more individual tools, and the choice between two different phone models is no longer enough.
Even though it would be great to always provide all employees with the latest models to use, it’s simply not possible for most companies. This is exactly the challenge that our bill splitting service was designed to meet, because it frees companies from having to choose between happy employees and reasonable device costs.
Everybody wins with bill splitting
Our invoice sharing service is a win-win situation, where the employee chooses the tool they want, even if the model is not included in the company’s list of standard devices.
Our invoice sharing service is a win-win situation, where the employee chooses the tool they want, even if the model is not included in the company’s list of standard devices. For example, if the employer has agreed that each employee can choose a phone that costs 350 euros maximum in the Data-Info online store, but your dream phone costs 500 euros, you can split the bill in two: the employer pays 350 euros and the employee pays the rest themselves with an easy online payment.
This allows the employee to have a phone they love, even if it costs more than the employer is prepared to pay. The point is not to make employees pay for their own tools, but to make it possible for them to use a terminal device that meets their wishes. Bill splitting benefits not only the employee, but also the company, because it ensures the predictability and easy management of their device costs without negative feedback about tools from the staff.
Data-Info portal increases satisfaction
The best part about the service is that it makes the company’s everyday routines easier: the financial management department no longer has to shuffle invoices, because bill splitting takes care of itself when the devices are bought via the Data-Info portal.
You can deal with the whole process and get it to the finishing line using your mobile phone, if you like, and the freedom to choose your own device is a huge boost to employee satisfaction.
