(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) One of the most important factors in running any business is managing overheads while maintaining steady profits. Considering the prolific use of communication devices such as landline, mobile phones, fax machines and many others traditional methods, keeping bills under control is by far one of the easiest ways in which to regulate costs.

In fact, businesses can save as much as 25 per cent of their phone bill by routing communications through e-mail or other digital channels. Following the success of last year's Al Mumayaz Savings Scheme campaign, Bank Sohar launched its new edition of the savings scheme for the year 2014.

In addition to the revamped scheme which includes a larger number of prizes, chances and winners, the bank is sharing saving tips each month on various aspects of life to help customers save more and spend wisely. The focus of this month's tip is on how you can save up to 25 per cent of your overall phone bill, or maybe even your own, by diverting communications through digital channels.

Further, elaborating on this tip, Munira Abdulnabi Macki, DGM human resource and corporate support, Bank Sohar, advised, ''Organisations today operate through adopting the right business packages which are created especially for their business use. By diverting communications through internal digital network with e-mails or messaging, businesses can save a considerable amount of money.

In addition, digital communication via e-mails and online messaging services and apps enable a business to keep better track of all communications, thanks to its inherent facility of an automatic backup of all communication data.'' In addition there are other alternatives in which these savings can be further augmented.

By switching all mobile devices to use the company's Wi-Fi network, businesses can save on their employee's data usage by utilising a service that is already paid for. Furthermore, this allows for a more cost effective mobile payment plan due to the reduced usage, which in turn will further enhance the already considerable savings.

Savings made from these and other initiatives can then be re-invested into the business in order to further expand with less overhead costs. ''Better still, these tips can even be used in your personal lives. By purchasing a readily available unlimited home broadband plan from your ISP and subsequently routing a majority of your communications through your home network, you can expect similar savings on your personal phone bill as well. Furthermore, popular third party messaging apps and services offer similar savings opportunities,'' Munira added.<
