Four walls and a roof no longer define the American workplace. Thanks to the proliferation of mobile devices, you can work from home, the car, the airport, the corner café, or your kid’s soccer game.
Most of us are well accustomed to packing up our laptop and using it to access documents and data when not in the office. But until recently, our business phone remained firmly tied to our office, making it difficult for us to stay connected with customers, employees and vendors when we’re not at our desk.
With new, advanced mobility features for landline phones, we can now communicate anywhere, while avoiding the cost of special equipment and reducing the amount of personal mobile minutes consumed.
For example, mobility features like Call Forwarding, Sequential Ring, and Simultaneous Ring make sure you don’t miss calls and that calls don’t end up in voicemail. Remember, missed calls often mean missed business opportunities.
You can also remotely manage a landline phone from a computer or laptop. This lets you turn on call forwarding, check your voicemail, and view your call history from anywhere.
You can also take advantage of downloadable apps that let your mobile phone be a true extension of your landline business phone number. No matter where you are, you can answer office calls, check and manage business voicemail, transfer calls, and take advantage of other advanced features for anytime, anywhere business communications. All without having to give out your personal mobile number. You can even have the ability to listen to your business line voicemail in an email and read a transcript of a voicemail on a smartphone.
Integrating mobility with your landline phone service means you’re always available for important business calls, helping you and your business be more productive, reduce costs, and project a professional image.
