Thanksgiving reminds us to express gratitude and reflect on what we’re thankful for — family, friends, good health. We tend to overlook the little things that can make the most significant difference. The ones that make life easier each day — dishwashers, microwaves, fast Internet connections, etc.
Maybe even the features of your business’ Voice over IP (VoIP) phone system…Ok, sure, it’s a bit of a stretch. Yet, consider your work life without them.
Thank You, Do Not Disturb Button
Ahhh, the beauty of your phone’s Do Not Disturb (DND) button. Press it, and calls go straight to your voicemail box, allowing you to focus on your to-do list without interruptions. (Well, from your phone anyway. Your employees may be another story.)
You Rock, Voicemail-to-Email
All voicemails, including those when your phone is in DND mode, appear in your email inbox. There’s a text transcription of the message and an audio file. You can listen to your voicemail from anywhere and delegate follow-up tasks by simply forwarding an email. They’re still saved on your desk phone, too.
FollowMe, You’re My Favorite
Missing important calls because you’re away from your desk can be frustrating as a business owner. Pressing your phone’s FollowMe button automatically forwards calls to your cellphone. If you don’t answer, the caller hears your business voicemail greeting, and their message shows up in your email inbox. You don’t have to stress about callers getting your cellphone number or hearing your personal voicemail greeting.
You’re My Hero, Automated Attendant
Fluctuating business hours, holiday specials, wishing customers season’s greetings — all this is made possible by your phone system’s automated attendant feature. It gives you the flexibility to plan and program future changes. Set it and forget it. No more waking up in a panic on Thanksgiving Day because you forgot to put the office phones into “closed mode.”
