    It depends. If it is needed for your transactions, then a mobile phone is a necessary investment.

  2. If you need to constantly communicate with your clients even with the use of mobile phones, then this is good. It will also allow you to contact your employee no matter where they are.

  3. I agree. It depends on how you are going to use it. If not, you can just ask your employee to log online so that you can contact them.
