Sonim XP5560 Bolt 2 – Five Ways it Can Drive Your Business

Posted June 13, 2014 in Business, Customer Experience by 0

As the market rapidly switches over from basic feature phones to full-blown superphones, you’d be forgiven for assuming there’s no more demand for phones that focus on voice services instead of apps and touchscreens. However the space is, in fact, very much alive.

In reality, some sectors continue to value devices that prioritize voice services above all. Enter Sonim’s XP5560 Bolt 2, a highly ruggedized phone that dispenses with features some businesses don’t need – or don’t want to pay extra for – in exchange for industry-leading go-anywhere functionality, unprecedented built-in safety features and robust, cost-effective performance.

Here’s a quick rundown of some of the key advantages of this unique device, and how they can benefit your organization:

1 – Greater robustness
The Bolt takes the term “ruggedized” and raises it to a new level. This isn’t just a phone with a rugged external case. Rather, it’s been built from the ground up to keep working even in the toughest conditions. Whether it’s submerged, run over or dropped onto a hard surface, it’s designed to put up with whatever anyone can throw at it. It’s built to the IP68 standard, which means it’s completely dust-tight, and it can withstand complete, prolonged immersion under pressure. If you or your people are working in construction, energy or any other high-stress environment, you’ve found your phone.

2 – Lower monthly cost
The Bolt 2 is an ideal solution for businesses that need uninterrupted voice service and occasional web access but don’t necessarily need to run apps or access extensive on-board storage. If you’re not paying for data services you don’t need, those savings flow straight through to the bottom line.

3 – Real-time communication
The Bolt supports next-generation push-to-talk (PTT) technology on Bell’s national 4G network. That means walkie-talkie-like communication among your entire team or between your team and your customers or suppliers. It’s a critical, real-time capability that can make the difference between delivering the goods or not delivering at all.

4 – Complete safety
Most phones simply allow you to communicate. This one can save lives, too. Its Sonim Protect® capability lets employees contact certified first responders by simply pressing a dedicated red button on the side of the device. The service includes a range of features, including Man Down detection, Geo-fencing and Guardian Alert. Because some things you simply can’t put a price on.

5 – Extended coverage
Over the life of the device, the Bolt’s basic design will likely mean fewer repairs, less time and energy spent chasing service calls and greater availability in the field. But if something does go wrong, it ships with an industry-leading 3-year comprehensive warranty. If the device is accidentally damaged – a scenario that would likely lead to an insurance claim or non-covered repairs with most other devices – the warranty covers that, too.

The bottom line
Sonim’s XP5560 Bolt 2 isn’t for everyone. If you’re looking for a smartphone that runs the latest apps and services, it isn’t for you. But if you need uninterrupted voice service – including next-generation PTT – and industry-leading robustness that’ll keep your people in contact no matter how harsh the conditions, this could be your phone. The life-saving Sonim Protect® functionality raises the stakes even more, taking this phone so far beyond basic telephony that it’s essentially in a class of its own.
