It's time for your business to transition to eSIMs for corporate travel

Find out why and how

· 2 min read

Leisure travel was quick to rebound and recover post-pandemic, with many people were hopping onto flights to satisfy the pent-up demand to travel. On the other hand, business travel was slow to recover - with many businesses re-evaluating and scrutinising corporate travels. But while slow, business travel is returning. GBTA had forecasted that we will see business travel return to, and even exceed pre-pandemic levels in 2024. If you are looking for ways to manage the cost of business travels, getting a corporate eSIM solution could be a rather quick and easy way!


Reduce your business travel cost with an eSIM

International roaming is a cost associated with business travels that can easily be reduced.

For business travelers, international roaming is a preferred option for staying connected. This can primarily be attributed to the fact that they are likely going to need to keep their business line active, and they probably do not have the luxury of time of queuing at the airport counters to get their local SIM cards.

International travel eSIMs are a good answer to data and connectivity on travels, offering travelers with the convenience that international roaming would, but at a much lower cost. You can keep your business line active while using your travel eSIM for your data needs; and neither would you have to spend time queuing at the airport counters for a local SIM. Simply by using a travel eSIM for your connectivity needs while traveling, you can save up to 75% in data roaming costs.

Manage, distribute, and monitor the usage of your business eSIMs

With business travelers used to simply turning on international roaming, it might not be easy convincing them to make that switch to an eSIM, especially not if they have to source for the eSIMs themselves.

But, things can be made much easier if you took that job of buying the eSIM away from your users. With the right eSIM partner for your business, you can bulk purchase the eSIMs that your company requires, and centrally manage and distribute them.

Not only does this help you to reduce data costs, it also helps in better management and forecasting of data costs surrounding your company's corporate travel.

How difficult is it to transit my business travelers to an eSIM?

For business travelers who are used to international roaming, it doesn't come as a surprise that many would be resistant to switching to something that requires additional effort.

And the truth is that eSIMs cannot replicate the convenience of international roaming entirely. With international roaming, you basically do not need to do anything - simply land at your destination and you are connected.

We can't say that it is exactly the same for eSIMs. But, it really isn't all that difficult to transition your business travelers to an eSIM solution.

With eSIMs, travelers will need to install the eSIM on their device. But, it really isn't all that complicated. As long as they have an eSIM-compatible device, they can simply scan the QR code of the eSIM to install the eSIM on their device.

Sure, they might need to make some adjustments to their device settings to ensure that their eSIMs are the ones that are being used for data, but the whole process is not going to take more than a few taps on their device.

So, we wouldn't say you are not going to face any resistance at all. But, it really isn't going to be all that difficult getting your employees to make this transition.
