#LumiaBizTrial lets UK companies test Nokia Lumias for free!

Work for a UK-based business? Then today could be your lucky Lumia day.

Why? Because, last week we launched #LumiaBizTrial, giving businesses the chance to try out Nokia Lumia devices free of charge for a period of 30 days. The participating companies will be sent three fantastic smartphones – a Nokia Lumia 925, Nokia Lumia 625 and a Nokia Lumia 525 – as well as their own personalised starter pack.

Lumia-Black-update-for-Windows-Phone-8Best for business

The purpose of the trial is to show (to those who don’t yet know) how brilliant Nokia Lumia devices are for business. Because most companies already work in a Microsoft environment, Nokia smartphones allow them to easily mobilise the systems they’re using on a daily basis. And with employees familiar with Nokia Lumia devices’ software and solutions, from SharePoint and Lync to SkyDrive, Outlook and Office, the 30 days should be more than enough time to discover the benefits of switching to Nokia Lumia.

Marketshare madness

Thousands of businesses are moving to the world’s best business smartphone: Nokia’s B2B marketshare has shot up from 5 percent to 12 percent in the past year. It really seems that once a company has tried out Nokia Lumia devices, there’s no looking back. Testimonials from those who have chosen Nokia smartphones say it all:

“The feedback about the Nokia Lumia smartphones has been very positive. They look good, have brilliant displays and are fast… The average increase in productivity is about 20%”

Marc Schlottig, Product Manager at MediFox, Germany

“We are a Microsoft house through and through and Nokia’s Lumia devices are perfectly suited to our needs… Our people love the new Lumia devices because they’re smart, quick and have great functionality.”

Jay Lyford, IT Manager at Sports Direct, UK

Windows Phone 8 Office improvements - part-one

“You get seamless connection into our back-end Microsoft systems, so a [Windows Phone] tablet that looks pretty much like an iPad gives you access to Exchange, all of our systems, ERP [enterprise resource planning]. As well as all the nice tablet functions people like.” (Computer Weekly, 1/2014)

Andrew McManus, IT director, NEC Group

What about the devices Nokia has picked for the trial? Well, they highlight how Nokia offers companies excellent smartphones with the same capabilities and apps for work at different price points. The Nokia Lumia 520 is the most affordable option, while the Nokia Lumia 625 boasts 4G capabilities and a large display for those who need to view presentations on the go. The Nokia Lumia 925, on the other hand, showcases the high-end features Nokia Lumia devices are famed for, from the impressive 8,7 MP camera to wireless charging and a premium, sleek design ideal for business users.

Blitz to switch

So, how can I take part, we hear you cry. Firstly, you have to be pretty quick, because there are just 200 trial packs available. Secondly, you have to be an IT or business decision maker for a company with more than 100 employees. If you tick these two boxes, simply click this link and fill in the application form. Good luck! We hope yours will join the ranks of the thousands of companies that have already switched to the world’s best business smartphone.
