There are times when all of us feel as though we can’t get away from our cell phones–there’s even a National Day of Unplugging and a Screen Free Week! For better or worse, we have become a nation addicted to our devices, but the trick is to find the proper way to manage life and business. Here are some of the upsides to having mobility with your VoIP system.
You are no longer handcuffed to your desk
If you are an salesperson, VoIP is especially helpful. If you’re using a traditional phone system instead of something like VoIP, each morning can find you coming into the office and spending a lot of time checking messages and calling people back. With a mobile app, you don’t have to be stuck at your desk; instead of customers calling your office line and finding a voicemail greeting, you can set it up to have the call come through to your cell when you are not at your desk. Not only does this save you time, but it’s better customer service.
Only one phone number
If you are a service company or a real estate office, your staff is usually out in the field. In this case, they have to use their cell phone. With a VoIP system, you only have to use one phone number, whether you are calling from your office phone or cell phone.
Most of today’s workers are attempting to manage their households as well as a business career. Employees may have doctor appointments or struggle to get into work by 8 A.M. due to family obligations. With mobility, employees now have a greater flexibility in handling their household while remaining connected to the office!
