June 7th, 2018 by adminThe digital age has changed the way we do many things in business. Sure, people are emailing and texting more than ever before. But one thing that hasn’t changed is the importance of the business phone call. In fact, Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that smartphones will account for more than 55% of total IP traffic in 2025. However, nearly all businesses have a phone system in place. Regardles, the question at hand is: how much is your current phone system helping you? Or, is it, in fact, making things harder on you? Ask yourself these few questions to find out the truth.
Question 1: How Many Options is My Phone System Giving Me?Call waiting, three-way calling, call transfer – and maybe even caller ID. Besides one or two other possible staples, this is about what you get with standard business lines. These features have come a long way from simple call systems, but they’re actually outdated for the modern business world.
Question 2: Am I Tied to My Desk During Business Calls?You’re wrapping things up at and getting ready to head home for the day. Before you know it, your biggest client calls your direct work line. You need to leave, but... you know that you have to take that call. The client is going to talk about important stuff, but you can’t easily record the call if you swap to your cell phone. What do you do? If you would have invested in a VoIP phone system, you could have booted up the application on your cell phone and taken the work call from there. It acts just like your regular phone call does – except it uses your virtual business phone number.
Question 3: How Easy Am I to Get in Contact With?Depending on your job, it can be difficult to get in contact with you. If you’re not in your office, you’re in your colleague’s office. Maybe you’re somewhere else in the building. You might even be offsite. People likely rely on you to get work done. Without being reachable, you’re likely impacting the productivity and workflows of fellow coworkers. It’s not that you’re unavailable, per se – you’re just not at the usual spots. People have to guess where you are, and what number to call.
