Mobile vs Virtual Office: What’s the Difference?

Many people think that virtual and mobile offices are the same, but there are actually a few differences between the two, despite the fact that technology makes them both possible. This short blog post discusses the difference between mobile and virtual offices.

Modern Solutions for Modern Problems

Today, we can conduct our entire business through a smartphone, but it’s not so simple — to ensure efficiency and security, specific services, software, and hardware are needed. Below are examples of requirements for mobile businesses and virtual businesses.

Mobile Business

When we say “mobile business,” we mean doing work while you’re outside the office.

This includes conducting online research, opening and responding to emails, maintaining communication through voice and text, and more. Fortunately, you can do all these things through Microsoft Office 365, which uses the cloud for storing data that you may need when you’re out of the office.

A great way to do this is to work on devices with large screens, such as smartphones and tablets. You’ll also benefit from having mobile security installed to protect your work, along with mobile device management services from BetterWorld Technology to cover your device in case it gets stolen or lost.

Virtual Business

Virtual businesses demand a bit more availability compared to mobile jobs and may require you to do more for the business, such as logging in to business applications or editing documents. To make the most out of your virtual environment, you’ll need to use a tablet or a computer, much like you would inside a physical office.

Just like mobile devices, your virtual setup will also need security to ensure that all your sensitive data is protected. An unmanaged VPN connection shouldn’t be trusted. Instead, please speak to our team at BetterWorld Technology to provide you with the best solution.


The most significant difference between these two modern business solutions is simple; a mobile business can be taken anywhere if you have a phone or tablet and are looking to do relatively easy tasks. On the other hand, a virtual business will require you to pay more attention to your processes and office system connections while allowing you to work anywhere, anytime.

With BetterWorld Technology, we can help set up both kinds of businesses. Our offices are found throughout the country, including North Carolina, Virginia, Missouri, California, Washington, D.C., and others. Get started with us today!
